The Pomimo is a happy-go-lucky designer crossbreed whose parents are the Pomeranian and the American Eskimo. These dogs are gentle and energetic, making great laptops as well as playmates. They’re suitable for all types of families and homes, including apartments.
Both the Pomeranian and the American Eskimo are intelligent and clever, which should make training this crossbreed a piece of cake—as long as there’s treats involved! The Pomimo makes a great dog for first-time owners and they get along well with children of all ages due to their gentle nature.
Pomimos may be on the smaller side, but they’re very active pups. They require regular walks, visits to the dog park, and interactive playtime as well as plenty of mental stimulation. These dogs are very alert, serving as excellent watchdogs. However, early socialization is necessary to help them judge and assess strangers and other dogs better.
Depending on which parent breed they take after more, their coat will either be long and flowy or short and thick. Either way, they’ll require a weekly brushing during their non-shedding periods to maintain a healthy coat.
