What is an F1b Pomsky?
We are often asked, what is an F1b Pomsky and what is the size of an F1b Pomsky full grown? This is one of the most common questions we receive. It’s such a common question that we asked one of our member breeders, Mischa of Brookside Pomsky, to provide a detailed breakdown of the various generations of the Pomsky. This is one part of our Pomsky Generation series, you can see the other Pomsky Generation blogs below:

This article is brought to you from Mischa Nelson, the owner of Brookside Pomsky, one of the most knowledgeable Pomsky breeders we know.
F1b Pomsky Puppy
An F1b Pomsky, the B stands for backcross when an F1 Pomsky crosses with a purebred Pomeranian or Siberian Husky. This means the Pomsky offspring is either 75% Pomeranian and 25% Siberian Husky, or 25% Pomeranian and 75% Husky.
Remember, the mother should always be bigger for the dogs safety.
F1b Pomsky Full Grown
The size of a full grown adult Pomsky varies on a number of different factors.
Pomsky generation does not guarantee size. The size of an F1b Pomsky full grown is based on the size of the parents, not based on the generation.
A good breeder wont guarantee size, but they can tell you a Pomsky puppies expected adult weight based on current weight, past puppies, and experience. As an example, at Brookside Pomsky we had two F2 puppies leave our home at 8 weeks old, both weighing 3 lbs. Their full grown weights were very different. One ended up full grown weighing only 12 lbs, and the other weighed 22 lbs when full grown. Both dogs where completely healthy, and while this could be a case of over feeding or free feeding, that was not the case in this scenario. This goes to show that the size of a Pomsky can vary.
