Pomapoo is an hybrid poodle mixes dog that shed very little and also produce very little dander, a plus for allergy sufferers.
Health and Care
It is truth that hybrid dogs tend to be more healthy and have less genetic disorders that purebred dogs, I recommend that when you are going to purchasing a Poma-poo you may need to watch and talk with the breeder for the common healthy issues in the Poodle breed, like cancer, dysplasia and thyroid, and sometimes Diabetes; And in the The Pomeranian purebred dogs that tend to develop cataracts and dry eye.
Just remember the Hybrid Dogs suppose to be more healthy so all these genetic health problems should not be an issue, this is why I suggest to ask !! and better be safe than sorry and miserable and get your Designer Dog from reputable and responsible Poodle Pomeranian Mix breeder.
Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss.
To prevent ear infection it is important to keep ears always clean.
Bathing as necessary but not too often
The Poma-poos like all other dogs regardless of age or size must have the right nutrients that contain a proper balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats minerals and vitamins.
Nutrition is the most important issue when you decide to bring your pomapoo puppy or your adult doggy to your home.
These sweet little hybrid dogs are doing well in an apartment life but do enjoy the daily walk.
They are very easy to train but training should be consistent and relatively firm. .
The Pomerian Poodle Mix can be a loving dog, but you should make sure that you buy one from a reputable breeder or any other source.
“ You won’t get any credentials or papers with your Hybrid and Mixed breed, but you should expect to get an healthy and happy dog.”
