Searching for Pomsky for sale?
A Pomsky is an adorable cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. These dogs weigh about 20 to 30 pounds and have a height from 10 to 15 inches. The puppies were extremely popular in 2016, and they have a good lifespan of 13 to 16 years. People are drawn to the small Siberian Husky look of the dog. Generally, the crossing includes a female Siberian Husky and a male Pomeranian, to avoid birthing complications in the mother. Petland always has the Pomsky for sale! Just check out our available puppies page!
What do Pomskies look like?
The looks of a Pomsky can vary between two pups but that’s what makes them so charming. Their eyes are often a light to medium blue color. They can have a pure white with black coat, all-white coat, white with brown coat or variations of grey. Breeders are still working on perfecting their look. A Pomsky has ears that are triangular and pointed with a black nose tip.
Fitting a Pomsky puppy in your life
This Pomsky breed is full of energy, and very loving and playful, but no two dogs will ever be alike. Generally, they inherit the personality traits of both the Pomeranian and the Siberian Husky. They are also highly intelligent, and can easily be trained through reward methods.
There may be some that inherit the Pomeranian’s stubbornness, but if you remain calm and patient they’ll learn through your assertive leadership. A puppy would best suit a family with older children, single people, and seniors. They are a good choice for a small house or apartment. If you are considering a Pomsky for sale you should also allow your budget to include a high quality dry kibble which can provide the extra nutrition this energetic dog requires.

Hello lovelies and welcome to our newest breed blog! We hope you’re ready and raring to go about our latest subject, the mysterious, yet lovable, Shih Tzu! We’ve done several breeds already, but this one really tugs at our heartstrings! This breed has been around for a very long time and once you take a look at this blog, you’ll know why! Petland always has Shih Tzu puppies for sale, just check out our available puppies page!
The Shih Tzu is formally the Tibetan Shih Tzu Kou.
Contrary to popular belief, the Shih Tzu does not originate in China, but in Tibet. The Tibetan monks considered the Shih Tzu holy and kept them in their temples. The Shih Tzu worked alongside the monks, functioning as alarm or guard dogs and even turning prayer wheels in daily Buddhist rituals. They were then sent to Chinese emperors as gifts, thus giving them their Chinese name. In the Chinese language, Shih Tzu means “Lion Dog”, as much for its features as its strength of character. They also earned the moniker of “chrysanthemum-faced dog”, which refers to the way the hair grows outwards from the center of the dog’s face.
Shih Tzus have been around the block, a couple times.
As one of the oldest breeds in existence, the Shih Tzu’s origins are shrouded in mystery and it’s hard to pin down exactly when they came about. The earliest definitive traces of the breed are Chinese paintings circa 500 AD and also documents describing these dogs being gifted for the second time from China to the Byzantine Empire. Much later, they became the official breed of the illustrious Ming dynasty, who kept them as pets for the royal family for centuries. However, the Shih Tzu very nearly went extinct in China after the Communist Revolution.
Sooooo, how did they get here, in America?
Because the breed was declining in China, a few citizens of the U.K. wanted to preserve the breed by importing them into the country in the 1930s. This importation essentially saved the breed, as all modern day Shih Tzus can be traced to the original 14 dogs brought from China to England. It was actually American soldiers who brought the Shih Tzu back to America after World War II, where they quickly gained popularity amongst the people. The Shih Tzu breed was then recognized by the AKC in 1969 and currently holds 20th place for most popular breed in America.

The Yorkshire Terrier is the 6th favorite breed in America and for good reason! These pint-sized pups are as feisty as they are lovable and they have a very interesting past. Read along as we increase your breed knowledge with these fun facts about the Yorkshire Terrier! Here at Petland, we always have Yorkie puppies for sale!
1. Yorkies Were One of the First Registered Breeds in the AKC
Even though the Yorkie is not a particularly old breed, these teeny dogs were one of the AKC’S original breeds. Yorkshire terriers became registered in 1885 along with a few other favorites like the basset hound, beagle and bull terrier.
2. Yorkshire Terriers are Born Exterminators
While today the Yorkie is popular as a companion breed, they started out originally in the 1800s as being effective ratters. Over the years, the Yorkshire Terrier breed has became slightly smaller, but no less tenacious! We think the Yorkie still retains that innate feistiness that made them great exterminators.
3. The Father of the Yorkshire Terrier Was a Show Champion
Yorkshire Terriers descend from several similar terrier breeds, some of which no longer exist, such as the Black-and-Tan Terrier. But the one dog considered the father of the breed was a champion show dog named Huddersfield Ben. He lived only six years, but won more than 70 prizes and sired many Yorkies, laying the foundation for the breed.
4. The Yorkshire Terrier Used to Be Called By a Different Name
When the breed was in its infancy, the Yorkshire Terrier was called the Broken Haired Scotch Terrier, Broken Haired Toy Terrier or simply Toy Terrier. It was around the 1870s before the name Yorkshire Terrier was adopted to regard the place where the breed began.
5. Smoky the Yorkie Was a World War II Hero
An American soldier fighting in the Pacific during World War II found a Yorkshire Terrier puppy lost in a foxhole. He named her Smoky, and she went on to become an American war hero. At first, Smoky visited injured American soldiers, making her one of the first therapy dogs. She later advanced to even more tactical work, stringing communication lines between outposts in the Philippines.
6. Rapunzel, Anyone?
Yorkies are part of the non-shedding group, so they rely on their owners for grooming. Their hair is similar to a person’s and it will continue to grow, sometimes up to two feet long! And while show dogs will have the much longer, breed-specific cut, most owners keep their Yorkies in a “puppy cut” to keep from having the daunting task of brushing out the coat several times a day.
7. Yorkshire Terriers, a Loyal and Loving Breed
If you have ever been around a Yorkie, you know that their bravery and boldness know no bounds! They may be small (unbeknownst to them, of course), but they have the countenance of a large breed dog and will protect their owners at all costs. Last year, a 6-pound Yorkie in New Jersey even chased off a hungry bear that wandered into the dog’s home and threatened its owner!
