The size of the full grown Pomsky also depends on the size of the dam and sire and the type of breeding. It is complicated to predict the size of the full grown Pomsky and other characteristics because it is the relatively new dog breed. The size of the full grown Pomsky can be as little as a toy dog and as big as an average full grown dog, depending on various factors. Even the breeder cannot tell the exact size of the full grown Pomsky.
Pomsky is the cross between the Siberian husky and the Pomeranian. Pomsky dog with the size like the Pomeranian and features like Siberian husky is everyone’s favorite. The Pomskies are adorable when they are puppies, but what happens to them when they are full grown puppies. To know about this, please read this detailed article to the end.
A full grown Pomsky is usually 10 to 15 inches tall at the shoulders. It is impossible to say something about the exact height of the Pomsky. We can estimate the height keeping some factors in mind.
The weight of a full grown Pomsky range from 15 to 30 pounds. The weight of the full grown Pomsky can be different, even in the same litter, as it depends on the breeding and parent breeds.
The length of the full grown Pomsky is 13 to 18 inches. The Pomsky is longer than its height.
Full grown Pomsky can come in different weight, heights, and length. In general, the size of the full grown Pomsky can be between 10-25 lbs.

Size of the Parent breeds
It is a simple theory that the size of the puppy depends on the size of the parent breeds. Same in this case, the size of the full grown Pomsky depends on the size of Pomeranian and Siberian husky. There is a simple formula to calculate the size of the full grown Pomsky. The size of the full grown Pomsky will be half of the size of the Pomeranian and Siberian husky combined.
Size of Pomsky / 2 = Size of Pomeranian (FATHER) + Size of Siberian husky (MOTHER)
Weight of full grown Pomsky
Keeping in mind the above formula, we can estimate the weight of a Pomsky. For example, the average weight of an adult Pomeranian is 6 pounds, and that of Siberian husky is 40 pounds. So, according to the formula, the weight of the Pomsky will be 23 pounds, when fully grown. Keep in mind that this is just a simple guide to estimate the weight of the Pomsky, it can be wrong.
Height of full grown Pomsky
We calculate the height of the dog from the ground to the shoulders. Similarly, the average height of a full grown Siberian husky is about 22 inches, and that of Pomeranian is 10 inches. So according to this, the height of the litter (Pomsky) will be 15 inches.
We can also estimate about the adult Pomsky’s size by knowing about the % of Siberian husky and Pomeranian crossed. In 75/25 Pomsky (when the puppy is 75% Pomeranian and 25% Siberian husky is crossed), the Pomsky’s size will be lesser than the 50/50 Pomsky. We can expect the weight of the 75/25 full grown Pomsky between 10-15 pounds. It is because there is more Pomeranian combination and the litter will inherit more characteristics (i-e, weight) from Pom. This type of the Pomsky is rare and more demanding nowadays because everyone likes Siberian husky’s features in small size. We get a 75/25 Pomsky when Pomeranian is crossed with a 50/50 Pomsky.
Now, if a purebred Siberian husky is crossed with a purebred Pomeranian, the size of the Pomsky puppy will be more than the size of the 75/25 Pomsky. The size of the Pomskies of this type can weigh between 15-25 pounds. This type is common and is more economical than 75/25 Pomsky.
The bottom line is that it is impossible to predict the size of the full grown Pomsky. Just keep in mind that if you want a small Pomsky (which is rare and expensive), ask the breeder for the 75/25 Pomsky. If you need the Pomsky in less price and a bit big Pomsky, you can go for 50/50 Pomsky.
