The Pomchi was created by the crossing of two breeds: Pomeranian and Chihuahua. They are referred to as a "designer dog". In 1998 a standard was set forth by the Pomchi Club of America.
Possessing a sweet and intelligent expression, the Pomchi is short in stature, cobby, and muscular. They are well-balanced, elegantly boned, and bold.
The Pomchi is affectionate, lively, and loyal. They do best in homes with older, considerate children. They are not recommended for homes with other pets. They are suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds. Pomchi's are aggressive and fearless and may bark incessantly. They are alert and typically become attached to one particular family member.
The Pomchi requires regular brushing to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should be done when necessary. Practicing good dental hygiene is essential to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as patella luxation, collapsed trachea, hypoglycemia, and eye infections.
The Pomchi may have a single coat that is smooth and short. They may also have a double coat that consists of a long, full outer coat and soft, fine under coat.
Early socialization and obedience is recommended. The Pomchi is willful and may be difficult to housebreak. The crate training method works best. The Pomchi will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
The Pomchi is well suited for apartment living. They are very active indoors and should have a variety of safe toys to play with. They enjoy securely leashed walks. A harness is recommended to prevent trachea damage. They also enjoy off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard.

Annual cost of owning a Pomchi puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Pomchis true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I just added a sweet girl to our family that had been abandoned. I believe she is a Pomchi, but she probably only weighs between 2 to 3lbs. Would she be a miniature or toy?

Congratulations on your new furever friend. It is great to hear that you took in that little angel and gave her a loving home. The Pomchi is a mixed breed dog between the Chihuahua and the Pomeranian. The average weight of a Chihuahua is between 3 - 6 lbs, while the Pomeranian's average weight is between 4 - 7 lbs. With your little girl around the 3 lb mark; that just means that she takes more after the Chihuahua side. There are no miniatures or toys in this mix since the Chihuahua and the Pomeranian only come in one size. You'll see the miniature or toy sizes for other mixes such as with Poodle crosses as they range in different sizes. Just enjoy her and give her all the love and care she deserves.

Anonymous asked:
How do you verify if they are actual Pomchi's? Are there papers to obtain? Vet papers/no vet papers? Interested in one but not sure what to expect and what to get to prove the Pomchi breed.

To answer your question quickly, there are no papers. "Papers" or Registration Paperwork is only for purebred dogs. When you start mixing two or more breeds together to get "designer dogs" or "doodles" or anything like that, there is only one way to be 100% sure of what your dog is. A DNA test can be done on your dog by submitting his / her saliva and having it tested to see what mix he / she is. However, most 'breeders' of mixed breed dogs are not going to allow you to test their dogs before you purchase, as they are in the 'breeding business' not to make a breed better or continue the lines of a purebred dog, but for the money off of designer mixes with cute names. If you want a Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix (Pomchi); then you either have to convince a 'breeder' to DNA test their puppy before purchase; or hope that they are not lying as to what they are selling and then DNA test your puppy after you purchase it.

My 10 week old Pomchi is scared to death to ride in the car. How can I help her? If I put her in her carrier she cries so loud, if I hold her she freaks out and tries climbing behind my neck under my hair and cries very loud. How can I help her?



Your puppy just got taken away from her mother and her siblings. She now has experienced a really scary moving vehicle. It's time for positive reinforcement. Your puppy is young and so you need to start slow. Start with feeding her in the car (not moving) so that she associates the car with good things. Once she is comfortable in the car with it not moving, bring some treats along and get a friend to drive (slowly) while you feed her treats. Please have her either in a safety harness on the seat beside you or in a crate for this. Contacting your local positive reinforcement training is also a good idea as they can help you counter condition your puppy to like being in the car. Good luck!


Put a treat your Pomchi loves directly outside of the car, right next to the seat your dog will be sitting in, when your dog eats that treat, place another treat on the seat right next to the car door, and keep moving the treats closer into the car. Praise/pet/treat her for coming into the car. Do this every day for as long as you need to until you no longer need to do this process.


I bought my Pomchi puppy a car seat where he can see out the window. I also roll the window down a sliver so he can smell the air as we travel about. Before that, he would get car sick. More than 10 minutes in the car and I would have a mess. So I had to put puppy pads under him to avoid a huge clean up. Then one day it came to me while in the shower I had my eyes closed from the soap I was washing from my hair and we had a bit of an earthquake. I couldn't open my eyes because of the soap so I waited out the next minute which seemed like an eternity and right then I realized this poor guy can't see a thing, where he is going or what is happening and he's never been in such a place except to be taken from what he knew to scary unknown so why wouldn't he be scared to the point of being sick to his stomach about what was happening every time he got into a car. So I bought the car seat and started taking him on regular trips everyday to the store and home or to the dog park and home. He jumps up into the car and then right up into his car seat!

My Pomchi/Mini Pin is a year old she has been acting weird lately. She is whiny, lays on top of the couch with her head down, drooling and she is itching at her tail end. She doesn't have fleas and she follows me everywhere I go. If I go into the office she will go there and do the same thing? What to do?



With any dog, no matter the breed, if there is a sudden change in behavior, it's time for a vet visit. It is best to rule out a medical issue before getting into possible behavioral issues. However, when you do go to the vet, make sure to write down any changes that have happened recently within the family. ie: kids going back to school, a schedule change with work, a new fabric softener, etc.


I did take her and she had obstructed bowels, that was $400.00. However, I did just have the carpets cleaned.

Anonymous asked:
Are Pomchis friendly dogs? I am thinking about getting one, but not sure.



Every dog is different. Some can be affectionate while others can be wary of strangers. Know your pup's sire and dam. If they are friendly and have good temperaments, it's a good idea that the pup will have a good and friendly temperament too.


When I got my dog I was told I will never go to the bathroom alone again. Although all dogs are different it is a pretty sure bet this dog will want to be with you ALL the time. I sit down he jumps on my lap. I take a nap he sits in his bed along-side of mine. I watch TV he sits in his couch and watches TV. Very rarely we are in two different rooms at any given time.


Pomchis can be agressive but if you train it well you can keep its agression down but they are very weary of strangers and new people.


Our little pomchi is going on 11, not a barker, LOVES EVERYONE.
