Thread: Pom X Husky - Possible?

    Actually if you do your research like I have you will find that poms were originally a large dog they have been bred over the years to a miniature size, as far as keeping then apart if anyone owns a dog they will know that during a time of heat the scent is strong and no matter how well you tie up your pet there is always a risk.
    Just yesterday our neighbour was saying how a jack Russell from 2 streets away got into there yard and tied with there pom.

    No wonder people think I am a cow lately with ammunition like this.

    Yes, all purebred dogs were different from what they are today once upon a time.

    But a Pomeranian is a breed... there is only one Pomeranian size and only one Pomeranian breed standard.

    One, uno, singular, not several, not plural, just one size... Australian National Kennel Council

    Yes during a bitches season a male will do pretty much anything to get to her, including scaling wall, breaking through doors, gates, glass windows etc etc, so the question is... why wouldn't you get the Pomeranian spayed if it did not fit breed requirements anyway, you have already said it was far too big to fit within the height limit for the breed?

    Who needs research to know that all dogs started off differently from the way they are now?

    We arent talking about how pomeranians were then.

    In regards to keeping them apart, I am again going to agree with CL. Why isn't the bitch speyed? Or why didn't they separate them completely. Tyign a bitch in heat up in the back yard is not goign to stop her being mated. If they didn't want to spey her, she should have been inside with them.

    I guess everyone has their own preference when it comes to desexing, personally I recommend it whereas my neighbour on the other hand thinks differently.

    Also certain circumstances also can effect the situation, at the time of heat a 4 month old baby being a high risk for leukemia was more important, long hospital stays etc.
    The thought of desexing just wasn't an option.
    so people can say it was careless but if you do everything in your power to separate them what more can you do.

    Over all like I said it was a great success and the most important thing is those puppies having wonderful loving Homes.

    From the feedback I received 569 emails in one week someone should really look into this cross breed, animal network have said they both have amazing qualities that counteract amazing with each other.

    First of all I must say, the most sweetest people and gorgeous little boy.

    I was completely informed about the puppy in everyway possible, if you see the mum and dad you would definitely understand.

    As for our new family member, she is a spunk! I will figure out how to post a picture of her up on this site.

    We couldn't have found a better pet to suit our family, she looks like a husky but just a itty bitty thing, we are in love!

    The poor family did go through alot with all of this especially from jealous and immature people that had nothing better to do with their time.

    I hope that they can now relax and focus on their beautiful baby boy again!

    The only way to keep a bitch safe during a heat is to lock her in a dog run that has a secure floor, walls and roof. Dogs can jump amazing heights to get to a bitch in heat.

    Even a metal crate would have served better than a dog run that allowed another dog to get in.

    I'm glad you found homes for the puppies but I don't think you should allow the breeding to be repeated. A responsible breeder will do heath checks before deciding if a pairing is a good idea.

    I'm not sure if you seen the earlier post but male was in a dog run and female wad tied up on the other side of the house.

    Both parents have been previously tested and records are on file, so when pups arrived they were able to complete further tests.

    As what was stated before and confirmed with paperwork, the network club have advised that the two breeds in this case work extremely well together otherwise I doubt they would pass them and encourage another litter. (Although that is NOT going to happen)

    So glad another litter is not going to happen. Does this mean one or the other of the dogs is going to be desexed.

    And tying a bitch up is not going to keep her safe from fence jumpers everywhere, let alone jail breakers. Obviously the husky was not in a secure run either.

    Dunno if it's these guys

    Ie another website belonging to Gene tech - who make money doing dna tests.

    I would like to see if the "network club" approve of having a large male breed mated to a small female breed. That can't be a good thing to encourage even if someone happened to get lucky this time.
