The popularity of the Pomapoo rose in the 90s when the demand for designer dogs heightened. Prior to this popularity, no dog breeder has officially claimed to be the mastermind behind crossing Poodles and Pomeranians.
Despite being originated from purebred dogs, the Pomapoo is yet to be officially recognized as a dog breed by the AKC (American Kennel Club). Though the Pomapoo is supposed to be a 50-50 percent combination of a purebred Poodle and Pomeranian, over the years some Pomapoos have more than 50 percent of one breed in its genetic makeup. Most breeders, however, chose to stop the crossing after the first generation to keep the Pomapoo with an even percentage.
As a crossbreed, the Pomapoo possesses characteristics of both a Poodle and a Pomeranian. They are generally friendly and affectionate towards people. Though their Pomeranian side might make them quiet around strangers, they are not aggressive hence may not make the best guard dogs.
Pomapoos are open to living with other dogs and early socialization can also make them open to cohabiting with other animals. They are also easy to train because they have an eagerness to please their owners.
The Pomapoo is a little dog that craves human contact. The best place for this dog breed is a home with a large backyard. While you can let them out to play frequently, they can’t be kept outdoors. Because the Pomapoos are very small dogs, they don’t occupy much space in a house.
You can give them a corner in your living room or bedroom. They also enjoy playing around in a big yard. One of the characteristics of a Pomapoo is adaptability hence they can easily fit into your home and lifestyle.
The Pomapoo, just like every other dog, requires regular exercise. Fortunately, it does not take much effort to keep them fit. They mostly require a walk daily to remain fit. Any other exercise requirements can be fulfilled while playing with them.
Pomapoos are more than happy to follow behind you in the home while you carry out your daily activities. The fact that they don’t require too much exercise makes them perfect for busy and elderly people.
A Pomapoo requires moderate grooming to look good. If the Pomapoo has a silky coat, a good brushing down once a month is required. If the Pomapoo has a curly coat, then daily brushing is needed. His teeth should be brushed daily with a soft toothbrush and a doggy toothpaste. Monthly bathing is also necessary to keep the Pomapoo clean enough for the house.
