Those of you who are familiar with Pomeranians will know by now just how goofy yet loyal and affectionate these little dogs can be. At the same time, they are well-known for being independent, bold, and fearless in the face of danger.
If it wasn’t for their diminutive size, Pomeranians could very well be considered decent guard dogs by most standards, but they’re not. Instead, these little furry baby-doll canines make perfect companions on account of their affectionate character.
Now, it should be said that Pomeranians make decent pets as they are, and yet people sought to accentuate their impressive traits even further by mixing them with breeds that share at least one of the personality traits that best describe these bold little dogs.
The result was not only unexpected but pleasantly surprising given how well some of these new breeds ended up behaving in regards to temperament and personality. Let us take a look at a few of the most successful Pomeranian mixed breeds out there so that we may get a better understanding of what these yappy little dogs are all about.

Papipom – Pomeranian Papillon Mix
Despite their small size, these dogs never seem to back down from open conflict with other dogs or larger animals. This is a trait that’s all too common for Pomeranians but it seems that the Papipom cranks that behavior up considerably.
Even so, they tend to be well-mannered around the people they like and will even get along with other pets provided that they have been properly socialized from an early age. This is, without a doubt, a necessity for all Pomeranian mixed breeds.
That said, these dogs are fairly loyal, friendly, and affectionate enough for people to express a surprisingly high demand for them. Not just that but the dog is also a joy to look at, thanks to its fluffy coat and erect ears that add up to a fluffy and heartwarming look that’s bound to melt people’s hearts at first sight.
Pom-A-Pug – Pomeranian Pug Mix
Turns out that if you mix a Pomeranian with a Pug you get double the goofiness without any setbacks to speak of. In fact, these short yet feisty dogs are incredibly cute to look at and tend to boast a personality to match.
Active and lively, these dogs are quite mischievous and require a lot of training if they are to behave properly among not just people but other dogs. We say this because they sometimes suffer from small dog syndrome and can get carried away when interacting with larger dogs.
It should be said that there isn’t a universal look for this mix and that the pups commonly share the looks of the dominant parentage. This way, a Pom-A-Pug can either look akin to a Pug or boast the same fluffiness of a standard Pomeranian.
Cockeranian – Pomeranian Cocker Spaniel Mix
This high-energy dog is a staple of both the Pomeranian and Cocker Spaniel breeds, a mixed breed that incorporates all the popular features of its parent dogs. Although it is also a high-maintenance dog by most standards, the way it looks and the way it behaves makes it all worth it if people’s personal experiences are to be believed.
Perfectly adapted to urban living, this dog has no issues with living in an apartment or even spending long periods of time confined within four walls. That said, it does require a hefty dose of daily exercise to stay fit and when you think about it, so do you.
Personality-wise, let me just point out that the Cockeranian is a very graceful and affectionate dog, even though it can get a little stubborn at times. Then again, you really should take the time to train your dog if you see yourself as a responsible pet owner.
Yoranian – Pomeranian Yorkshire Terrier Mix
A lot can be said about Yorkshires as a breed and how strong of a personality this dog tends to have. When combined with a Pomeranian, the Yorkshire blood seems to render the mixed breed even more personable and independent.
While some people might get confused about the dog’s constant need to make itself seen and heard, you need to rest assured that it means no harm when doing it. It’s just that being a smaller dog, it needs to impose itself in other ways or at least give the impression that it needs to be taken seriously.
In regards to its looks, know that the Yoranian has a long and thick coat with an almost wiry texture that makes it difficult to brush. That said, the dog doesn’t really shed that much, not when compared with other dogs its size.
Pomeagle – Pomeranian Beagle Mix
This playful pooch is perhaps one of the goofiest, most wacky Pomeranian mixes ever created. Considered a toy breed on account of its size, the dog is always up to something due to its high energy reserves, a mischievous nature that recommends it for households with children and easily amused adults.
Also because of its size, the Pomeagle makes a very good apartment dog, one that doesn’t mind spending long hours indoors as long as it has a pleasant company. Speaking of which, this is the type of dog that tends to get under your skin, always craving love and attention at all times.
Naturally inquisitive and even annoyingly curious according to some folks, the Pomeagle makes up in entertainment what it lacks in reliability and patience. It is also a fairly intelligent pooch, so training him/her shouldn’t be a problem provided that you take your time to do it.
Maltipom – Pomeranian Maltese Mix
This Maltese & Pomeranian mix stands out through its willingness to follow you around literally everywhere you go. It matters not if you are exercising, working, watching television, or simply idling around the house, this is the type of dog that will always be there by your side to keep you company.
It is perhaps because of their willingness to provide unconditional companionship that these dogs are so sought-after as pets. Because you see, these jovial little dogs are surprisingly intelligent, able to follow instructions, and capable of learning new things at any given time.
They are also very healthy as far as small dogs go, and have a lifespan of up to 15 years or more. That aside, bear in mind that these dogs can be a bit overprotective with anyone they are attached to, so you will have to take your time introducing them to your family and socializing them from an early age to avoid problems later on.
Shiranian – Pomeranian Shih Tzu Mix
Seen as an ideal apartment dog, the Shiranian is perhaps one of the smallest yet healthiest dogs you can get. This is a dog that reaches about 7 to 12 inches in height as a fully grown adult and can live up to 15 years if nothing unusual happens.
One of the reasons why these dogs are becoming so popular nowadays is because of how well adapted they are to living indoors. Considered great apartment dogs, they love spending time inside the house as long as their owners are there to keep them company.
They are also very attractive aesthetically speaking, thanks to the Shih Tzu heritage that blesses them with a quite attractive coat of hair. Speaking of which, the dog tends to shed a lot so be prepared to brush it every couple of days or so if you plan on getting one for yourself.
Pomston – Pomeranian Boston Terrier Mix
By combining a Pomeranian and a Boston Terrier, you get a dependable, brave, loyal, and fairly intelligent pooch that’s bound to provide not only companionship but protection as well. This is because it tends to inherit a lot from the Boston Terrier, especially in the looks department.
Speaking of which, these dogs look like slightly miniaturized versions of the Boston Terrier, which also means that they don’t require a lot of grooming. In fact, their short, low-shed hair makes them ideal for apartment living, or for anyone who may suffer from allergies of any kind.
Furthermore, keep in mind that this is an athletic dog that requires a hefty dose of daily exercise in order to stay healthy and fit. In this respect, you can take the dog out for walks about two or three times a day or exercise them thoroughly for 60 to 90 minutes every day.
Pomapoo – Pomeranian Poodle Mix
These little dogs make perfect companions on account of their size and cuddly behavior. While this is true for most Pomeranian mixes, the Pomapoo tends to stand out due to how friendly it is, not just with family members but with anyone who pays it any attention.
Reasonably intelligent, these dogs are easy to train and although they can get a bit stubborn at times, you shouldn’t have too many problems socializing them. Then again, you would do that with any dog regardless of size, especially with a dog that inherits the Pomeranian’s feisty genes.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that it has a wavy fur coat that’s soft to the touch and somewhat easy to groom. The coat can also be straight in some cases, even though Pomapoo pups usually inherit the Pomeranian’s coat rather than the Poodle’s.
Dameranian – Pomeranian Dachshund Mix
Due to their small, slender bodies, Dameranians require a lot of attention and care, both in regards to diet and exercise requirements. Similar to the Dachshund in this regard, the Dameranian tends to be very loyal, alert, and energetic.
These dogs are also known for developing good relationships with other pets and even with the people they interact with on a regular basis. This is useful considering how energetic the dog can be and how easily its alert nature can be misinterpreted.
Try to remember that Dameranians have quite the appetite and that they can devour any food you place in front of them. They hardly prefer a specific food in this regard, just as long as it is nutritious enough and chosen based on the dog’s physical requirements.
Pomsky – Pomeranian Husky Mix
This unusual and rare breed came about by mixing a Pomeranian with no other than a Husky, a truly unusual mix all things considered. The result, however, is nothing short of spectacular. You see, this rare toy breed is considered one of the cutest mixed breeds in existence and understandably so.
You need to understand that the Pomsky is among the most playful and adorable dogs out there, one that enjoys partaking in any activity they see you doing. This is more accentuated during the first few years of the dog’s life but it can be conditioned into the dog by engaging it in physical activities on a regular basis.
Because of the dog’s small size, it does not require a lot of space to roam, nor does it needs to go out that much. This makes the Pomsky an ideal apartment dog, one that will easily adapt to any environment as long as you’re there to provide the care and affection the dog requires.
Bichon-A-Ranian – Pomeranian Bichon Frise Mix
Everybody knows how sociable and affectionate a Bichon can be, so any mixed breed that involves one is bound to be just as friendly. This is exactly the case with the Bichon-A-Ranian, a dog that combines the affectionate personality of a Bichon with the loyalty of a Pomeranian.
Despite their tiny size, these dogs have titanic personalities, which may explain why so many people enjoy having them as pets. Although suspicious of strangers, they get along very well with the people they interact with on a regular basis and will even develop long-lasting bonds with them.
Interestingly enough, this dog also has a hypoallergenic coat that makes it the perfect companion for anyone who suffers from allergies. Having said that, keep in mind that the dog requires a moderate amount of grooming and that it gets dirty very fast.
Pomchi – Pomeranian Chihuahua Mix
Although very small and seemingly feeble, this toy dog may prove an amazing companion on account of its friendly nature and exemplary loyalty. Similar to its parent breeds, the Pomchi loves spending time with its owners and will engage in any activity as long as they get to spend time with the people they care for.
Also worth mentioning is that Pomchi dogs love being indoors and only require a few minutes outside from time to time in order to be happy. This makes them ideal for apartment living, or for any family that lives in a confined or restrictive house.
Furthermore, it has to be said that these dogs require a bi-weekly brushing on account of their peculiar coat. That aside, they tend to be healthy dogs for the most part, but can easily grow weary and lonely if they are neglected for extended periods of time.
