The Pomapoo dog breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Pomeranians and Toy Poodles in the late 1990’s, probably in North America, to minimise the health problems often associated with pure breeding and to create an intelligent, loving companion dog. Although the Pomapoo began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If you decide this is the breed for you, consider adoption. Check local shelters, look for Pomapoo rescues or check with breed-specific Pomeranian or Poodle rescues, as they sometimes help rehome mixed breeds.Currently, the Pomapoo is not recognised by the American Kennel Club.
