Pomapoo Hybrid Dogs

Updated on July 9, 2011

Physical Description

The Pomapoo, alternatively spelled Pom-A-Poo, may also be known in certain registries or by different breeders as the Pooranian. No matter what you call this small, active and highly intelligent hybrid dog you can't help but love them for their definite outgoing personality.

Typically most Pooranians are more alike in appearance to the Pomeranian than to the Toy or Miniature Poodle. They range in size from under ten to about fifteen pounds in weight at maturity and are usually under 12 inches at the shoulder. The coat is thick, curly, wavy or even straight, often with a very dense inner coat and silky outer hairs. The tail may be curled up over the back very tightly or simply carried high in a gentle curl over the rump. The head is very fox-like in appearance, especially when groomed and clipped. Left natural the hair may grow long and shaggy over the face and body. Like many canine hybrids there are now second and third generation crosses of Pom-A-Poos available that are more of a combination of both parent breeds.

The ears can vary from the very pointed, triangular ears of the Pomeranian to the more lengthy Poodle ears. The legs are straight and very strong and the dogs have wonderful athletic ability.

Temperament

The Pomapoo is a terrific family dog, getting along with children, other dogs and even cats and other domestic pets. They do need to be socialized when young to prevent some dominant types of temperament from occurring. Obedience training is also recommended however they are very smart and will learn incredibly fast. Many Pomapoos learn tricks within just a few lessons or training sessions and they truly love to be around their families. They don't do well as a kennel or outside dogs. They are a companion pet and need regular, significant interactions with people to be happy.

These dog types are good for a wide variety of living arrangements including apartments, houses without yards and those with small fenced yards. They may be prone to being somewhat yappy if not socialized and trained, however they can be excellent watchdogs when trained not to bark too much.

Grooming and General Care

Most owners clip their Pomapoos to keep grooming to a minimum. The puppy clip is a good choice, either with or without shaping around the head. Longer, natural coats will need grooming every other day to prevent tangles and dead hair from building up in the coat. Some may be low shedding, especially those that have a more Poodle like coat, however the Pooranians with the double coat of the Pomeranian will be constant shedders with seasonal sheds in the spring and fall.

Both breeds may be prone to early tooth loss and dental problems so always feed high quality dry kibble and provide lots of chew toys and dental chews. Some Pom-A-Poos may become finicky eaters if fed too much human food or a diet of only canned food. They will self-exercise in a house but they do, like all dogs, need a good brisk walk or run outside for twenty to thirty minutes two to three times a day if at all possible.

      That's great as the little ones only have tiny bladders and can hide and go in th house and there's not much you can do about it! At least oyu NOTICE a big dog starting to pee!

      The tendency seems to be for smaller dogs I notice. Did you know small dogs can be litter trained? A friend of mine has trained her two chorkies to use a litter box.
