Pomapoo Breed Summary

Intelligent, Sociable, Playful, Alert and Friendly

These hybrid doggies are a cross between a Miniature Poodle and the Pomeranian. The traits of the parents mean that normally they are very sweet and affection doggies, however as they are such a new breed, each pup will be different. This is also in terms of their physical appearance as well.

However, generally, they are very happy and friendly doggies who love to make friends with all sorts of beings, whether you be a child, family or an animal! However, because they do love 'hoomans' so much, they are prone to developing separation anxiety, so need someone to be around for most of the day.

Both of the parents of this breed are extremely lovely doggies, known for their friendly and outgoing ways. Their high intelligence and eagerness to please, means that they are both very easy to train and also great for first time owners! However, they don't take well to harsh treatment and so need plenty of positive reinforcement to keep them happy and engaged. Some are also known to be very alert and weary of strangers, meaning they make great watch dogs. Overall though, they make lovely pets with the ability to provide you with years of happiness and love!

A relatively new 'designer' cross breed, the Pomapoo is thought to have been developed over the last ten or twenty years. They were created as a response to 'hoomans' wanting a dog that was more unique than other breeds, possessing distinctive physical characteristics. The Pomapoo is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Miniature or Toy Poodle and it's also claimed, although not proved, that cross breeds are hypo-allergenic and prone to fewer health issues. However, as a new breed, pups will vary from litter to litter with very different physical and mental traits. For example, some may look more Poodle-like in physical appearance, whereas others maybe more alert, in likeness to their parent, the Pomeranian.
