If you are reading this blog post you’ve probably already had some interaction with Pomskies. Whether it was pictures, research, or passing one by during a walk. Pomskies are hard to miss because of their beauty. They are one of the prettiest designer breeds out there. Some say the Pomsky puppy is like a husky in a miniature body, making it adorable and easier to cuddle. But that’s not always the case. You see because the Pomsky dog is a breed mixed with two completely different breeds, it’s appearance will range drastically. Some Pomskies look more like their mother the Siberian Husky, while others take on the look of the father Pomeranian. Because of this it is often hard to know how long each Pomskies lifespan is as well. But, we will give you a better look in the paragraph below.
How long is a Pomskies lifespan?
Before we can determine how long a Pomsky will live we have to look at it’s ancestry. Pomskies are a mix breed of both the Siberian Husky and the Pomeranian, because of this it is hard to know exactly how long a Pomsky’s lifespan is. For example the Pomeranian is known to live anywhere from 12 to 16 years whereas the Husky is known to live anywhere from 12 to 14 years. Depending on what gene the dog takes from most will mainly determine how long it lives. But, most Pomskies are known to live anywhere from 12 to 15 years. This number is still uncertain because the Pomsky breed is fairly new and hasn’t had a lot of research to agree with the assumption.
How do I give my Pomsky a longer life span
One of the best ways to give any dog a longer lifespan is by giving it the right amount of exercise and a good nutrition. With these two things combined you can be sure your Pomsky will live as long as possible. Here are a few tips of what to add into your dog's life to increase its lifespan.
Pomskies need to have a lot of food because they are very hyper active. Meaning you’ll have to feed them a little more than a regular dog. But don’t go overboard, too much food is definitely not good for your pet. Make sure to include plenty of meats and proteins in your dog's meals to increase its health. Some owners even like feeding their dog fresh meat to make sure it still has all the proper nutrients.
Let your dog spend some of it’s day outside on the lawn. You can even play games like fetch and tug a war to help keep your dog active and moving around. Tag is also a very fun activity to play with your dog as well. Every owner should walk their dog at least once every day to increase it’s blood flow and help complete exercise for the day.
Now I’m not saying that training your dog is going to add another 2 years to its lifespan, but if you do train your dog you’ll be able to avoid any possibly dangerous situations. For example training your dog to sit and stay can help them avoid running into the streets and getting hit by a car. It can also help so your dog doesn’t run off on it’s own and get lost. This in turn keeps them safe and healthy.
