Pomsky Shopping Red Flags

Common Warning Flags When Looking for a Pomsky


Pomsky puppies that are under $1,000 are most likely a scam. Some may be lower priced at under $1,000 but tend to be untested and very low quality. With all good things in life, you get what you pay for. Ask to see parents and grown full or half siblings!


If the language is off or is worded oddly, take caution.

AKC papers

Pomskies are not recognized as an AKC breed yet. If a breeder tells you they are AKC, they are a scam or are lying. Some breed clubs that Pomskies can be registered under are the American Pomsky Kennel Club, the International Pomsky Association, and the Pomsky Owners Association.


Pomskies are very rarely put on discount when young. If they are, it is typically due to them being older(4-5 weeks or older). Some breeders do offer discounts, but nothing extravagant like 50% off. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

Puppy Parents

Reputable breeders will be able to provide pictures mom/dad/siblings. Ask to do a video call in order to meet the parents. Sometimes males do belong to other breeders, and may not be on the property(pictures should still be able to be provided).

Puppy Presence

You should be able to see puppies from birth until they go home. Only seeing pictures of puppies ready to go home is a red flag. Typically you will be able to see pictures of puppies thorough the time with their breeder, and sometimes even after on the breeder's website and social media.
