For those of you who love small dogs you won’t be able to resist the Pomeranian Chihuahua. Known around the hybrid breeding world as the Pomchi, these tiny dogs are simply adorable. While it isn’t recognized as a standard breed this little dog has become a household name over the last few years. Very tiny at birth, these pint sized puppies are so cute and they will melt the hearts of anyone who holds one. Often called a purse dog, the Pomchi is a favorite among many of Hollywood’s in crowd. In fact, you just might see one on the red carpet.
So When You Cross a Pomeranian and a Chihuahua?
When you breed a Pomeranian and a Chihuahua you get the cutest dog on the planet. A very graceful dog, the Pomchi will either have long hair or short hair depending on which parent they take after. But many of these dogs have short hair and resemble their Chihuahua parent. Ranging from 5 to 12 pounds, these dogs can easily be carried where ever you go. Unlike some dogs in which the male is the larger animal, in the Pomchi breed, the female is longer than the male. When it comes to coat color the sky is the limit when it comes to what you are going to get. While the offspring may resemble one of the parents it’s also possible to get a mixture of the two different dogs. This can be frustrating for some breeders who try to determine what their puppies are going to look like.
How About Temperament? Are These Dogs Aggressive Like Some Small Breeds?
While some of these Pomeranian Chihuahua mixes can be a bit feisty, most are very calm dogs. A very smart breed, the Pomchi is very quick to learn and can be housebroken in a matter of days. Unlike some small breeds which end up ruining your carpet before they learn. Most of these dogs are great around small children but just like with any breed of dog you are going to have a few bad apples. To prevent your Pomchi from getting into the bad habit of biting, it’s wise to socialize your dog as soon as possible. The more people and pets you can expose your dog to at a young age the better. But overall this dog breed is very loving and affectionate to both its owner and other animals that may be in the home.
