Meet another one of our favorite office dogs, Miss Daisy Mae, the Pomapoo!

Miss Daisy Mae
Though this is not technically a “breed”, but rather a cross between a Pomeranian and a toy or minature Poodle, this designer breed is becoming more and more popular!

Daisy Mae is very loving and loves to cuddle!  She gets along great with other dogs and is very gentle with children.  Strangely enough, she likes taking showers!

Physical Characteristics

The pomapoo (also known as a pooranian) is a small lap dog, weighing only 10-15 pounds.  Since this dog is a hybrid, there can be quite a bit of variation in appearance.this pomapoo looks more like a poodle They generally have medium to long coats and can be curly like a poodle, or straight like a pomeranian.  Although the poodle has a non-shedding coat, the pomapoo still requires alot of grooming.  They come in just about any color combination imaginable!  Pomapoos usually have a long tail and their ears can either be short like a pomeranian, or floppy like a poodle.

Miss Daisy Mae looks like a Pomeranian, but other Pomapoos look much more like a poodle!

Temperament

Just like its variable appearance, the Pomapoo’s personality is not easily predicted, as it can take on traits of either a poodle or a pomeranian.pomeranian mother/ toy poodle father The best way to predict the temperament of a pomapoo puppy is to meet the parents!

Both pomeranians and poodles are active, playful breeds requiring lots of exercise.  Pomapoos are very social and affectionate.  They get along well with other animals, including cats and love to be with people, especially children.  Training your Pomapoo should be fairly easy, as they are very intelligent.  They often think of themselves as watchdogs and can be quite yappy!  Daisy Mae likes to sit in front of the mirror and bark at herself.  This was cute at first,…..but not anymore!

History

Over the past few years poodle mixes have become very popular!  This is mainly because their non-shedding coat makes them perfect for people with allergies.

Pomapoos are very new to the dog world and so they don’t have a long history.  Pomeranians originated from larger working dogs of the north, but were later bred to their small size to be lap dogs.  They became popular in the late 1800s when Queen Victoria placed her own Pomeranians in the Cruft’s Dog Show.  Poodles originated in Germany and France and were used as water retrievers.  The German word “Pudel” means “splash about.”
