The Pomchi is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Pomeranian and Chihuahua dog breeds. Playful, devoted and energetic, these little puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents, Pomchis go by various names, such as Pomahuahua, Chimeranian, Chi-Pom and Pom-Chi. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and rescues. So remember to adopt. These adorable pups make excellent flat dogs for active urban dwellers, and they also adapt well to small, single-person households. If you are looking for a small, attention-loving dog with lots of guts, the Pomchi may be just the dog for you.
The Pomchi is a mongrel dog. The main colours of Pomchis are sable and brown, but they can also be blue and tan, black and tan or cream. Pomchis tend to have a longer coat and may not be ideal for allergy sufferers. Their double coat requires regular grooming. The Pomchi tends to find a favourite person in the house, but may get along well with other family members. They make excellent watchdogs, but it is important to start training them early to curb unwanted barking.
The Pomchi dog breed may have existed naturally over the years, but it was not until the late 1990s or early 2000s that designer breeders began to intentionally mix Chihuahuas and Pomeranians, probably in North America. Although the Pomchi 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 adopting. Check your local shelters, Pomchi rescue groups, or Pomeranian or Chihuahua rescue groups, as they sometimes take mixed-breed dogs and find homes for them.
