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.
