Size and Weight:
The joy of the Pomsky hybrid is that every litter and generation offers something a little bit different. The size and weight of a Pomsky varies depending on a number of factors; the generation of Pomsky, the size of their mother and father, the litter size and their gender. In Siberian Huskies, the size difference between mature males and females is quite noticeable -with some females being 2-3 inches shorter and up to 15 lbs. lighter. With Pomeranians, the males and females are similar size, with no real variation between the two sexes. In our Pomskieswe find that there is a slight size difference between males and females, with males being slightly heavier and taller.
First generation Pomskies are also known as the first filial generation or “F1 generation”. This means that one parent is 100% Siberian Husky and the other parent is 100% Pomeranian, resulting in offspring being 50% Pomeranian and 50% Siberian Husky. F1 generation Pomskies vary in size, as one would imagine, as there is a large size difference between the two parents. Some puppies will take on more of the Siberian Husky size and characteristics, while some puppies will take on more of the Pomeranian size and characteristics. On average an F1 Pomsky will weigh between 10-25lbs. Rarely are puppies below 10 lbs. and above 25 lbs. for this generation. By the age of 6 weeks old, better estimates of the weights of individual puppies are available.
Second filial generation or an “F2 generation” Pomsky is the breeding of an F1 male to an F1 female. This generation is smaller and will provide puppies with more predictable sizes and markings. F2 generation puppies vary in size from 10-20lbs, depending on the parents who have been breed. We are actively working towards offering Pomskies under 10lbs in weight and will have some amazing puppies available soon. Please note that the weights and sizes of puppies cannot be guaranteed, as larger or smaller puppies may results from this hybridization. We strive to place appropriately sized puppies to match the lifestyle of their new owners and often puppies are not placed up for adoption until 6 weeks old, to better gauge the final adult size. Please view our Photos page as well as our Previous Puppies page for tons of photographs that showcase the size and markings of our Pomskies.
