As a designer breed, there can be significant variation from one dog to the next. Coming from two small parent breeds, the Pom-A-Poo is a small dog. They can have a coat that is curly like the Poodle parent or they can have a straight coat like a Pomeranian. However, most Pom-A-Poos have a wavy coat that is somewhere between the two. Common Pom-A-Poo colors include black, white, brown, red, sable and fawn. Some dogs from this breed will be solid colors, but it is also common to see mixed coats. These dogs can also be hypoallergenic if the coat takes more after that of the Poodle parent. While personalities can vary, most Pom-A-Poos will be affectionate, friendly and intelligent. They tend to form strong bonds with people, but they can also be needy when it comes to attention. This is not the type of dog that will do well in a home where it is left alone often or for a long time.
Origin of the Pom-A-Poo
The Pom-A-Poo is a hybrid of the Pomeranian and the Miniature Poodle. There is no documented history of this designer breed, but the first intentional pairings of the two parent breeds seem to have occurred in the 1990s in the United States.
Is a Pom-A-Poo right for me?
If the Pom-A-Poo is your choice of breed, you will get a bright little dog that loves to please people. While some exercise is necessary, these are not dogs that want to spend all day outdoors. They are most happy when in the home playing or being affectionate with the people they love.
