As the name suggests, a Chihuahua Pomeranian Mix is what you get when you breed these two types of small dogs. Fondly called a Pomchi or Chipom, this is a popular mixed breed toy dog. They are bold, alert, and loyal, which makes them an excellent pet for any dog lover.
Features of a Chihuahua Pomeranian
There are certain standards of what a Pomchi looks like, according to the Pomchi Club of America. For instance, these dogs have a rounded, wedge-like head. Their eyes are large and round, yet not protruding. They often have dark eyes while there are Pomchis with blue eyes.
A typical Pomchi has upright, medium-sized ears. Their moderately short muzzles are slightly pointed with a distinct stop. Oftentimes, there is a black pigmentation on their noses with the exception of light cream and white dogs. The tail is average in length and comes with a loop instead of being tucked between their legs.
Pomchis are quite active and energetic dogs. However, they can be prone to certain ailments, which I will cover in the next section.
How Big Will A Chihuahua Pomeranian Mix Get?
Not too big, that’s for sure.
As both parents are small breeds, a Chihuahua Pomeranian Mix barely grows taller than 9 inches. In fact, many full-grown Pomchis stand at 6 inches and weigh between 5 and 12 pounds. Indeed, these are pocket-sized, designer breeds that are ideal for apartment or condo dwellers.
