The Pomapoo (also known as a Pompoo) is not a purebred dog but is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Poodle. There is now a growing trend towards designer dogs, and the Pomapoo is one of the latest in a variety of Poodle hybrids.
The Pomapoo is generally a sweet –tempered, intelligent dog that makes a good family pet. They are easy to train, adapt well to strangers and are very loyal and devoted to their owners. These dogs are also very active and love company.
As with all Poodle crosses, the Poodle coat is often dominant and will usually produce a low-shedding, odourless coat, which is said to be hypoallergenic. This gives the breed a wavy to curly coat, with a face and tail that can resemble either a Poodle or a Pomeranian. The coat will need grooming daily to remove any knots or tangles and will require clipping on a regular basis.
Not all of these designer dogs are bred 50 % purebred to 50% purebred, as it is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses. There is no guarantee that each dog will display characteristics of both breeds, as it may inherit more of one breed’s characteristics than the other. Using two known breeds, rather than a combination of unknown breeds, will ensure that at least some known characteristics will be displayed. The breed is not recognised by the American or Canadian Kennel Club, but is recognised by the American Canine Hybrid Club as the Pom-A-Poo.
Many people believe that most poodle hybrids are healthier than purebreds, but this fact cannot be proved either way. It is, however, true that by mixing genes you get more variables and less chance of increasing the bad genes. Most poodle hybrids are very attractive with beautiful coats, which come in a variety of colours. This is certainly true of the pretty little Pomapoo.
