We would prefer to see you get a Pomsky that is up for adoption. However, be very careful when Googling this. There are some blatant scams out there. Breeders are telling you, you can “adopt” one of their dogs when in reality the Pomsky dog they have is for sale and they are trying to sell it to you, convincing you you are adopting. Only go through reputable rescues and breeders. Obviously, any breeder that is doing this is shady beyond belief and should be avoided at all costs.
$500 - $5,000
However, this can range significantly. Since this is such a new breed there aren’t as many people out there breeding them yet.
This is a very popular designer dog right now, but is also very young. Hence, there isn’t much of a history. Pomskies are obtained through artificial insemination, always using a Husky mother and a Pomeranian father, for obvious reason. And to avoid health complications caused by a small mother giving birth to puppies that are too large. The results are beautiful puppies that in most cases qualify as great companions and wonderful family dogs.To understand the history of the parent breeds, let’s look at them a little more closely. The Siberian Husky is a medium size working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia, Russia. The breed belongs to the Spitz genetic family and was bred to pull sleds fast over long distances. The Pomeranian is a breed of dog of the Spitz type that is named for the Pomerania region in Germany and Poland in Central Europe. It is best known for being a companion dog and not one that necessarily works.
They have a bit of an unpredictable temperament, I think that is the Pomeranian in them and is the main reason why some breeders don’t recommend Pomskies for families with small children. The Pomeranian can have the typical small dog syndrome and want to push others around. Since they are on the small size children should be observed closely handling them.
Height: 10-15 inches
Weight: 19-30 pounds

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition.
Do not purchase a puppy from a breeder who cannot provide you with written documentation that the parents were cleared of health problems that affect the breed. A careful breeder and one who truly cares about the breed itself, screens their breeding dogs for genetic disease and breed only the healthiest and best-looking specimens. One of the most common health problems with dogs is obesity. Keeping this under control is your responsibility.
A Pomsky dog has a double coat that is usually soft, fluffy and silky. Plan on brushing him a couple of times a week. They will shed a lot so you need to be prepared for this. Give them proper brushing and have a good vacuum on hand. They will need moderate exercise (as all dogs do), to keep them mentally and physically happy.

A lot of times diet is done on a per-dog basis. Each one is unique and has different dietary requirements. Most dogs in the U.S. are overweight. A mix like this one that is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia should really be on fish oil and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements as soon as possible.
Overfeeding any dog is not a good idea as that can really exacerbate health problems such as elbow and hip dysplasia.
A good diet to look into is Raw Food Diet.
