There are not any firm standards for the Pomanese and the dogs can vary depending on which parent they take after more. Since the two parent breeds are small, this is a small designer breed. These dogs generally have long hair like a Maltese, but it can also be slightly fluffy like the Pomeranian parent. You can find Pomanese dogs with coats that are white, tan, brown, black, gray and mixed. Based on the traits of the two parent breeds, you can expect a dog that is loyal, affectionate and intelligent. They can be wary of strangers, and if not properly trained, they can tend towards being territorial. The Pomanese can get on well with families and pets, but they can also do well in a home where it is just the owner and the dog. With that said, they do like a lot of attention and they can have problems if left alone too much.
Origin of the Pomanese
The Pomanese is a designer dog created by crossing the Pomeranian with the Maltese. The history of this hybrid is not well documented, but the idea behind this designer pairing is to create a small companion dog that offers the best traits of the parent breeds.
