The Pomimo dog breed is not a pure breed. They are called hybrid or designer breeds. It is developed from half Pomeranian and half American Eskimo dogs. This dog is also known as Eskipom and Eskiranian. These dogs can weigh around 10 to 17 lbs. and could be between 7 to 12 inches tall, smaller than the average American Eskimo and larger than the typical Pomeranian dogs. The Pomimos are affectionate and has a good temperament generally. They make wonderful watchdogs as they are very loyal and smart enough to know strangers and bark. Although they can be friendly to them when they are introduced though. They get along well with children and make great pets.
This breed's coat colors would greatly vary from their parents. This includes Black, Brown, Orange and Cream or a mix of the colors mentioned.
This dog's coat is like that of their predecessor breeds: the Pomeranian and American Eskimos. The coat is long and thick with a dense undercoat. Brushing should be done daily to keep it looking good and tangle free.
This dog is affectionate and has a good temperament which makes them one of the most loved breeds. Suitable as watchdogs, they are loyal and intelligent enough to know strangers but can be friendly once introduced. They are great with children; thus, making them perfect as family dogs.
These dogs' diet should be carefully monitored as they tend to over feed themselves. They should get enough exercise to burn off excess energy as well as excess weight. Otherwise, they could possibly gain weight more than they needed. Be careful also that this dog does not overheat in the hot weather. The Pomimos grooming needs are so much like that of their purebred Pomeranian predecessors. It requires daily brushing and occasional bathing. The most common health issue known for the Pomimos is eye infections. Make sure they are regularly taken to the vet for check-ups to be sure that no health issue would arise or it gets taken care of immediately.
This dog responds well to consistent training. They need a firm, confident and strong human to keep them balanced and content dogs. Like their American Eskimo predecessors, they like to work.
The Pomimos need to be taken on their long daily walks. They can be fine running around in a securely fenced yard but they greatly need to fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Their energy needs to be drained to keep them from becoming destructive at home.
