    It makes you wonder! Nice-looking pup though. And at least not asking a small fortune because it's 'rare'.

    Good grief. He's actually a nice looking little dog though, more well-put-together than most pug crosses one sees. Hope he finds a good home.

    Jesus o_O

    The logistics of that just boggle my mind. Some crosses are getting weirder and weirder, even people with rarer breeds are getting more into crosses than pedigrees. I saw a Clumberpoo the other day advertised :rolleyes:

    A colleague at work told me recently that she wanted to get a pomsky because they look so cute as pups.

    I tried to explain the likely negatives of such a dog.... back yard breeders or puppy farms, a husky temperament in a pot size package or a husky size dog with little obvious pom, mating two different breeds doesn't mean hybrid vigour and that mating two dissimilar sized dogs could be a disaster. Also if after all that didn't put her off then make sure mum was the husky !

    She is now focussing on a doodle of some description.

    I believe the image that was posted about which was said to be a Pomsky pup was actually nothing of the sort. Wasn't it a full pedigree of a completely different breed altogether?

    Where there's a will there's a way! ;)

    Not sure whether I think it's cute or not tbh, although as @picaresque said, its put together better than most Pugs are.

    If such a breed disparity is being bred then I suspect it's through AI or by being held. Very clinical.

    And poor dog being advertised. Looks like he's going to be passed around. Ought to be going back to the breeder not being sold on the internet.

    Poor boy :( Hope he finds a good home. I think its kinda weird looking but I'm sure he is a lovely dog who deserves a nice home.

    This makes me so cross! I ended up giving a lecture to someone on the train on Friday, because they wouldn't stop banging on about what a perfect dog a Pomsky would be; I ended up calling them cruel :(. I really am rubbish at arguing when I get emotional

    Well I've seen Chihuahua x German Shepherd so this doesn't surprise me anymore.

    He is decent looking though, I don't really get along with Pugs but he's quite nice.
