Pom-A-Poo – Q&A

December 22, 2018


Before you become a Pom-A-Poo owner, you want to be clear on a few things. Having the right information will help you decide whether this is the right breed for you, depending on your circumstances and preferences. That way, you eliminate any chances of getting surprises that you aren’t too happy about. This post will answer some familiar concerns you may have:

Is a Pom-A-Poo a good dog?

Generally speaking, when it comes to a dog, “good” is relative. The right way to ask the question would probably be whether the Pom-Poo temperament will match with yours. Temperament is determined by several factors, including the parent breeds and how they are socialized.

Poodles and Pomeranians are both known for their outgoing and friendly nature. However, the personality of your pup will also be largely determined by how he’s raised.


At what age is a Pom-A-Poo full grown?

While they are fully grown by the time they are 12 months old, a Pom-Poo can live up to 16 years (if well taken care of). Males will grow to a height of between 8 and 10 inches, while females will be slightly shorter, between 8 and 9 inches.

Do Pom-A-Poo dogs shed?

Yes, they do. You’ll be interested to note that Pom-Poos with curly hair shed less than their straight-haired counterparts. So in case of allergies, the curly Pom is the one you should consider.

Is the Pom-A-Poo active?

They have the ability to lounge around the house in the evening, but only after an active day outdoors. So, even though you may not need to worry about too much activity, the Pom-Poo can be agile and fun-loving too!


How much is a Pom-A-Poo?

The cost of a Pom-Poo pup is highly dependent on the breeder. The health-guarantee is one of the factors that will affect the cost of the pup. In most cases, the cost is worth it. All you need to do is work with a reputable breeder whose pups are known to be of good quality.
