What made you decide to get a Pomsky?
I saw a picture of a Pomsky on social media and knew that it was the breed for us. I looked in to it for some time and found Katiebrooke Kennels. We were in the process of buying our first house so had to wait a few months before making a decision. I spent that time researching and came to be even more sure that we needed a Pomsky in our lives. Once the house was ready we waited for our perfect boy to become available. We were very lucky to not have to wait too long before Mowgli appeared and Denis at Katiebrooke’s confirmed that he was ours! We went to visit him in Limerick before he came home and fell in love.
What’s the funniest story you have about your Pomsky?
I was supposed to have a week off work when we first got Mowgli but there was an issue at work and they needed me to come in on the first day. I agreed to do so with the agreement that I could bring Mowgli with me. He was amazing on the train, cuddled up on the seat next to me all the way. What a relief when we arrived at Fenchurch Street Station and he hadn’t peed on me 🙂 So we get off…. tottled along the platform, everyone looking at him as he is so gorgeous, until we reach the stairs. I walked down a few steps and look up to see Mowgli sat at the top, not budging. I thought he was nervous of the stairs… but No…. he wasn’t sat at all… he was squatting.. leaving a nice runny poop right bang in the middle of the top of the steps at rush hour! And my god did it stink! I very quickly got out the poo bags and scooped it up, picked him up and hurried off! Never been so mortified in my life lol! The rest of the day went smoothly and he livened up my office for the day but I still have a giggle to myself every day walking past ‘the spot’ 🙂
What makes your Pomsky so great?
Mowgli has the most amazing personality, he is playful and gentle. He loves people and other dogs and loves getting made a fuss of. He is protective but in a loving way. He is one of the cleverest dogs I have ever come across. Toilet trained within the first few days, commands and recall all mastered with ease. He is amazing and we love him to bits and can’t imagine life without him. Not to mention he is beautiful 😉
What’s one dog product you couldn’t live without?
Julius K9 Harness. It is so easy to get on and off, easy to clean after a muddy walk, it looks great and can be personalized!
What’s your best advice for someone who’s considering getting a Pomsky?
Be prepared for lots of fun and cuddles. You get the best traits of both breeds, playful Husky and cuddly Pomeranian!
