Pomsky Adoption – How To Get Your Pomeranian Husky By Adopting
We hear the question about Pomsky adoption often. This is a highly desirable breed making adoptions few and far in between. Sites like AdoptAPet and PetFinder are great places to start but can you get a Pomsky from them? There are a lot of dog breeds (purebred and mixed) that need homes.
We encourage our readers and people in general to consider adopting a pet regardless if they are a purebred or exactly what you’re looking for. You really are making a wonderful contribution by being part of the adoption process. If you are set on looking for a Pomsky to adopt there are a few things to consider.
For starters MOST pet adoptions won’t come with papers. It is a good idea for you to understand upfront that even if you find a “Pomsky” for adoption there is a good chance it isn’t a purebred. There is even a more likely chance that it is a smaller Siberian Husky or a combination of breeds that resemble a Pomsky. At the end of the day it is about a great fluffy friend that you can bring home though. Moving on!
“Adopt” vs “Buy”
We live in a very PC world that constantly feels the need to change direct terms like “Buy” to more friendly words like “Adopt”. When you start your Pomsky adoption search you will be given a list of Pomsky “Adopter” sites that are just selling Pomskies with a “nicer” sound to it. It is important to know the difference.
If you are going to buy a Pomsky that’s great but be on the look out for scammers and unofficial Pomsky breeders. Check the Pomsky Club of America website for a list of reputable breeders. You can also check our Official Pomsky Breeders page. There are a lot of people that try to pass off mixed breeds as Pomskies.
Where To Look
Local pet shelters are a good place to start. Google is pretty accurate about putting local shelters in the search results. Check with them first. If you aren’t in a hurry (yeah right) some shelters do offer waiting lists. The list makes it so they can call you when a the breed requested comes in. I will tell you that this “waiting list” method is a luck of the draw type deal. Most of the desireable breeds and traits will never be in shelters long enough for shelter workers to call people on a waiting list.
Pure Pomsky Patience
The excitement in puppy searches can cause us to get impatient. This can make potential Pomsky owners use bad judgement. Calling breeders that are less than reputable or trying to get a “deal” on a purebred Pomsky. You’ll find yourself looking everywhere and even obsessing about it. If this is you I really recommend getting in touch with a reputable Pomsky breeder.
Pomskies are expensive but if you really are wanting one then do it right. Cutting corners rarely works and buying a Pomsky is no exception. If you are just wanting to adopt a dog then there are some excellent sites out there that have pets ready to go. Whatever your decision give it careful consideration and use common sense.
