Our Adult Maltese and Adult Pomsky Dogs

OUR ADULT MALTESE

About the Maltese Dog

The Maltese should always be pure white (may have tan/peach spots as a puppy), Hypoallergenic (non-shedding), Black pigmentation and straight hair. The tiny Maltese, 'Ye Ancient Dogge of Malta,' has been sitting in the lap of luxury since the Bible was a work in progress. Famous for their show-stopping, floor-length coat, Maltese are playful, charming, and adaptable toy companions. Maltese are affectionate toy dogs weighing less than seven pounds, covered by a long, straight, silky coat. Maltese are hardy and adaptable pets. They make alert watchdogs and always want to be picked up, held and cuddled with (Oh yes lots of cuddles!).  Most Maltese live a long life up to 18 years old.

About the Pomsky Dog

We started out owning a Husky but once we saw a Pomsky we knew this was a perfect fit for our home, farm and life style.  

The Pomsky—a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian—is often referred to as a “designer dog breed.”

This relatively new breed tends to be of the fluffy, cuddly variety, but there’s a lot of variation in these dogs, as well. Here’s what you need to know about this newcomer breed.

Pomsky puppies look like fluffy miniature wolves and it’s this unique appearance that has dog lovers all over the world completely infatuated. Apparently, everyone in the world wants to hug a wolf. Sadly, that’s not a particularly good idea overall. So, Pomskies are a noble substitute for this inexplicable need. These adorable pooches are one of the more recent additions to the designer dog arena. Pomskies are a result of a crossing between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. Strange bedfellows, to be sure. But their babies? Absolutely gorgeous!

As it is the case with most hybrid breeds, the physical appearance of a Pomsky puppy can be somewhat unpredictable. It will be cute, but beyond that it’s hard to say what will pop out of the mamma pup. Additionally, since it’s a new mix, Pomsky breeders are still tweaking the ‘perfect’ look to become the breed’s standard. However, most enthusiasts seem to gravitate towards a “Huskeranian” look. This is a dog that looks quite like a Husky but is much smaller in size.  Of course, with this sort of breeding you never know exactly how it’s going to turn out. There may be more Husky in one pup, while another pup in the exact same litter will have more Pomeranian in them. You never know! Most f1 Pomsky puppies, or first-generation litters, are 50/50 Pomsky. That means that their father was a Pomeranian, and their mother was a Siberian Husky. The 25/75 Pomsky puppies are a mix of a Pomsky and a Pomeranian. This dilutes the Husky genes,which makes for a smaller dog that’s more suitable for apartment living among other things.

The Pomsky’s temperament can also be varied depending on each parent’s genetic contribution, but they are generally considered to be highly intelligent, loving, and playful dogs. It’s just a question of how intelligent, loving, and playful these pups turn out to be.
