Pomeranians may be small in size, but they’re packed with personality and boldness. While they were once larger sled-pulling dogs from the arctic, Pomeranians we’re re-developed and downsized (twice!) to become some of the world’s best companion lap dogs.
The modern Pomeranian is such a great family dog that they’re one of the top 25 most popular dog breeds in the United States. And because of this popularity, they’ve also become one of the most common candidate for mixes all over the world.
Pomeranian mixes are far more common than you think. Our family had a Pomeranian, though we have always had a suspicion that she was mixed with the Chow Chow. And while the possibilities are certainly endless, here are our top picks for favorite Pomeranian mixes.

Best Pomeranian Mixes
Pomeranians have a distinct appearance, as seen with most spitz-type dog breeds. As a result, many of the Pom mixes also show these physical characteristics that have been around for thousands of years.
1. Aussie Pom
Parent Breeds: Aussie x Pomeranian
Aussie Poms are the ultimate designer dogs that combine exuberance, work ethic and fun-loving energy. They’re part Pomeranian and part Australian Shepherd, which surprisingly balances each other out quite well.
And despite the “designer dog” label, they’re far more common than you think! If you have your eyes set on a Aussie Pom, always check your local animal shelter first. Plenty of these Pomeranian mixes need a forever home.
Both parent breeds are well-known and popular dogs. However, the temperament and looks can vary greatly. Depending on which parents they take from, they can sport the beautiful merle coat, but with a bit more fluff. Either way, they’ll have a lot of energy!

Parent Breeds: Papillon x Pomeranian
Being a hybrid of two energetic dog breeds, the Paperanian is the same. The Paperanian combines the cleverness and intelligence of the Papillon with the fun-loving temperament of the Pom.
Because both the Papillon and Pomeranian are expert lap dogs, you can expect this Pom mix to be the perfect family companion. They’re affectionate, good-natured and love to be around people.
Unfortunately, this mix isn’t very common. There’s very little information on the personalities of these dogs. However, both parent breeds are known to have fantastic temperaments that matches well with any family.
3. Pom Kee
Parent Breeds: Keeshond x Pomeranian
The Pom Kee is a hybrid that combines two fluffy delightful dog breeds: the Pomeranian and the Keeshond. In terms of jobs and roles in society, the two are very different but can mesh well when put together.
On one hand, you have the Keeshond – a fierce hunter bred for tracking and chasing down small game. Pomeranians were bred for pulling sleds among other various tasks in the snow. But despite the differences, both parents are sweet and gentle dogs.
Both parent breeds are spitz dogs, meaning they look very similar. By crossbreeding the two, you’ll likely get a hybrid that doesn’t look too different from either parent. Still, there can be some variations in coat colors.
Parent Breeds: Rat Terrier x Pomeranian
One of the most unusual crosses, the Pomerat is a designer dog that combines the Rat Terrier with the Pomeranian. You can expect the toughness from the terrier side, but a much gentler and sweetness from the Pom.
The crossbreed gives you a lively, joyful and affectionate small dog that tend to do well in families with older children. They love nothing more to play with their human family. Plus, they can play for hours at a time.
But don’t underestimate these dogs because of their small size. The Pomerat is a Pom mix that has a huge personality. They are fearless dogs (thanks to the Rat Terrier side) and will try to establish pack dominance early on.

Parent Breeds: Cocker Spaniel x Pomeranian
Cockeranians are hybrid dogs resulting from the crossbreeding of the Pomeranian with the Cocker Spaniel. Both parents have similar qualities, including the playful temperaments and the unwavering loyalty.
It’s easy to see why the Cockeranian is so popular. With their stunning good looks and the charming personalities, these dogs know they’re amazing Pom mixes. It’s just too difficult to resist the exotic and adorable Cockeranian.
When it comes to affection, there are few mixes that can compare. These dogs are all about devotion and they’ll show it with their actions. Their appearances can vary but it’s almost always adorable and cute.
Parent Breeds: Schnauzer x Pomeranian
The Pomasnauze gives this Pomeranian mix a bold and lively edge not seen in purebred Poms. These free-spirited and fun-loving dogs have a feisty personality that really makes them “small dogs with big personalities.”
Most Pomasnauzes are crossbred with the Miniature Schnauzer. Though uncommon, it’s possible for some breeders to use the standard variation. For this reason, the size of this mix has been known to vary quite a lot.
Other than the appearance, both parent breeds are very similar dogs. And while both parents are very popular in America, the combination isn’t as prevalent in the designer dog community.
Parent Breeds: Havanese x Pomeranian
With both the Havanese and Pomeranian being popular toy dogs, this hybrid was bound to happen. As such, both of the parent breeds have similar qualities that make the Ewokian “consistent” as far as hybrid dogs go.
For example, both parents are very social dogs. In fact, they can’t stand being alone for long periods of time. The Ewokian is the same way. But if you have the time to spend with these dogs, they’re some of the best companions you can find.
You may be wondering why this Pom mix isn’t called something like the “Pomeranese” or “Havaranian.” They’re called the Ewokian because they have an uncanny resemblance to the Ewoks from Star Wars. A huge plus for Star Wars fans.
Parent Breeds: Japanese Chin x Pomeranian
The Chinaranian is a match made in heaven! Crossbreeding the Japanese Chin with the Pomeranian produces a beautiful and loving companion with a strong eagerness to please their humans.
Chinaranians are amusing dogs. Largely thanks to the Japanese Chin side, they’re always willing to learn and “perform” tricks for an audience. These social dogs absolutely love being the center of attention.
However, the Chinaranians need a lot of love and affection to truly thrive in a household. That being said, they’re not ideal for busy owners with little time to commit to their dogs. In addition, they’re best for older children due to their fragility.
Parent Breeds: Mini Pinscher x Pomeranian
Both parent breeds of the Pineranian are equally small. So, expect this Pomeranian mix to be somewhere around 10 pounds and 10 inches tall. They may be small dogs, but their attitudes are anything but.
The thing is, Pineranians don’t know they’re small. Their sassy personalities make them courageous little dogs in the face of a much bigger threat. So, these dogs won’t tolerate rough play from kids and often snap back if picked on.
On the other hand, they’re extremely intelligent and bright dogs. Learning commands and tricks will be a breeze for them. Plus, they can become surprisingly great workout buddies too. Just don’t overwork them!
Parent Breeds: Schipperke x Pomeranian
Also called the Schip-A-Pom, the Pomerke is the stunning hybrid of the Schipperke and the Pomeranian. Both parent dogs are companion breeds with a curiosity for life. However, the curiosity often leads them to trouble.
A little mischievous but very outgoing, the Pomerke is the perfect companion for all. They get along with everyone and it’s nearly impossible not to befriend them. The only exception is young children, who like to tease these small dogs.
Because both parents are known for their fluffy long coats, the Pomerke will have the same. However, it’s likely they inherit the beautiful black color from the Schipperke side. Just make sure you have time for grooming – they need it!
Parent Breeds: American Eskimo x Pomeranian
There are few Pom mixes as happy-go-lucky as the charming Pomimo. This ultimate spitz hybrid combines the American Eskimo dog with the Pomeranian, giving us one of the most entertaining toy companions.
Despite their small size, the Pomimo can be a formidable watch dog. They’re always alert and won’t be afraid to let out a few deep barks at the sight or sound of strangers. Just know they do this because of their love for the family.
Although they love lounging on your laps, they also enjoy outdoor activities. They’re small but have an unlimited amount of energy that needs adequate physical activity to match. And with proper socialization, they get along with all humans and dogs.
Parent Breeds: Boston Terrier x Pomeranian
One of my favorite Pomeranian mixes, the Pomston crosses the Boston Terrier with the Pomeranian. The result is a feisty, yet intelligent dog that has a comical and goofy side to them.
These dogs are all about fun. They’re super-friendly and love to be around humans. In fact, they’re the best versions of themselves when entertaining their owners. As long as you can keep up with them, they’re appealing toy dogs.
What makes the Pomston special is their adaptability. No matter where you live or what your situation is, all these dogs need is love. They’re great apartment dogs and can learn to be excellent with all people and animals.
Parent Breeds: Dachshund x Pomeranian
The Dameranian is an interesting mix, combining the wolf-like characteristics of the Pom with the hotdog shape of the Dachshund. And although the physical qualities of the mix can vary, you can always expect the short legs.
However, when it comes to coat, the Dameranian varies a lot. The cause for variation is largely due to the Dachshund’s numerous coats. They have a short-haired, long-haired and wire-haired coat. So depending on the parent, it’s hard to predict.
Dameranians are very friendly and playful dogs. They get along with great other dogs and people, but have impressive devotion for the family. With a bit of commitment and love, the Dameranian is ideal for most families.

14. La Pom
Parent Breeds: Lhasa Apso x Pomeranian
The La Pom is as exotic as it sounds. These special fluffy hybrids are the result of the cross between the vigilant Lhasa Apso with the cheerful Pomeranian. Not surprisingly, the two breeds balance each other out well.
Often described as “small in size but big in spirit,” the La Pom weighs no more than 15 pounds. Given the Lhasa Apso parent, they’re remarkable watchdogs that’ll alert you at the sign of any intruders. This was the Lhasa’s original job, after all.
The Pomeranian parent gives this mix a willingness to learn and perform tricks. They also do surprisingly well in agility trials. But what makes these dogs amazing is their ability to adapt and get along with humans.
Parent Breeds: Jack Russell x Pomeranian
The Jackaranian is the unique combination of the Jack Russell Terrier and the Pomeranian. And as expected, the Pom mix is always full of lively energy and excitement. There’s really never a dull moment with a Jackaranian.
Though hybrids can vary in personality, the Jackaranian will usually have the spirited temperaments and stubbornness from the terrier side. The bright attitudes and optimism of the Pomeranian are also present.
However, this Pomeranian mix is not ideal for novice dog owners. Thanks to their strong will and independent mindset, they can become quite the challenge to train. Plus, they’re not the most ideal playmates for small children.
Parent Breeds: Bichon Frise x Pomeranian
The Bichonaranian is the beautiful cross between the elegant Bichon Frise and the joyful Pomeranian. They’re relatively new to the world of designer dogs but have quickly picked up steam in the past few years.
And like with both parents, the Bichonaranian is known for being friendly and energetic dog with a sweet disposition. These dogs are expert companions, which isn’t all too surprising considering the roles of the parent breeds.
But depending on which parent the dog inherits up more from, Bichonaranians can be either great with all kids or snappy with younger kids. That’s because Pomeranians are known to appreciate rough play so well.
Parent Breeds: Beagle x Pomeranian
Beagles are one of my all-time favorite dog breeds. So, this Beagle Pomeranian hybrid is one I’d love to meet one day. The result of the Pomeagle is just as amazing as you’d expect it to be.
Pomeagles have the easygoing personalities that you’d expect in a Pom mix. In addition, they’re super loyal and friendly companions. Plus, these mutts tend to inherit the amazing noses and inquisitive nature of the Beagle.
They’ll adapt well to any living situation, whether on a farm or in a city apartment. However, obedience training might be tough as the Beagle’s stubbornness comes through. And if you plan to keep one outside, make sure the enclosure is secured!

Parent Breeds: Westie x Pomeranian
Weeranians are one of the most pleasant Pom mixes we have. The designer dog crosses the West Highland White Terrier (Westie) with the Pomeranian to produce a little fur-bundle of joy and cheerfulness.
Pomeranians are heavy shedders while Westies are some of the most hypoallergenic dog breeds. So shedding can vary greatly with this mix, depending on which parent your dog inherits more from.
Truly a small mutt, Weeranians are no more than 12 inches tall and 15 pounds. Still, they’re as lovable as any other dog. They can be sweet and loyal, making them ideal companions for literally anyone.
Parent Breeds: Brussels Griffon x Pomeranian
The Brusselranian is the crossbreed of two breathtaking toy dog breeds: the Pomeranian and the Brussels Griffon. Both parent breeds have very distinct physical features, which make this mix that much more interesting.
Brussels Griffons are known for their adorable monkey-like faces, which is often inherited in the Brusselranian. However, this mix tends to inherit the fluffiness and body type of the Pomeranian. Just think of them as adorable monkey dogs!
Like both parents, the Brusselranian was developed for excellent companionship and you shouldn’t expect anything less. They’re affectionate, caring, bright and surprisingly easy to train. And while they’re small dogs, they have a lot of energy that requires exercise.
20. Pom Coton
Parent Breeds: Coton de Tulear x Pomeranian
New to the designer dog world, Pom Cotons are becoming increasingly popular Pom mixes and it’s easy to see why. Few dogs are as inherently kind and sweet as the Pom Coton. They’re just that friendly of a dog.
With high intelligence and a willingness to please, these hybrids are excellent choices for even new owners. In fact, it’s probably a huge reason why they’ve become so popular in America during recent years.
But because they’re still relatively new mixes, the outcome can vary depending on which side they inherit more from. All we know is they’re superb companions and love nothing more than to cuddle up with their owners and lounge around.
21. Pom Shi
Parent Breeds: Shiba x Pomeranian
Who would have guessed that the Shiba Inu Pomeranian mix was a thing? But if you think about it, both parent breeds are top companion dogs from different sides of the world. So while unusual, the Pom Shi is a complete no-brainer.
However, the parent breeds of the Pom Shi are very different. On one hand, the Shiba Inu is a highly-skilled hunting dog with a feisty and independent nature. Pomeranians, though, are positive and affectionate dogs.
The cross is somewhere in between, resulting in a nice and stable balance of the two parents. With that said, they’re very capable watchdogs and companions. The Shiba Inu side may provide a hint of stubbornness, but it won’t be too bad.

22. Cava Pom
Parent Breeds: Cavalier King Charles x Pom
Cava Poms are ideal companion dogs that combine the friendliness of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with the Pomeranian’s devotion. Not only do these dogs have attractive personalities, but are also downright gorgeous.
They’re still fairly new in the designer dog scene, but we know they have distinct features depending on the favoring of the parent genes. Most will have the Pomeranian’s coat, but also have the King Charles’ head shape. It really depends.
In the home, Cava Poms thrive off human interaction. They’re one of the most loving Pom mixes, but also demand a lot of reciprocated affection. But with a face like that, it’ll be hard to resist a Cava Pom.
23. Pom Silk
Parent Breeds: Silky Terrier x Pomeranian
The Pom Silk, a hybrid of the Silky Terrier and Pomeranian, is truly a fun-loving and feisty dog with a sweet and affectionate side. Developed as a true companion, the Pom Silk will stick by your side like a good “velcro dog.”
One of the most unique physical qualities of the Silky Terrier is the smooth, hypoallergenic coat. But with the Pomeranian’s genes, they’ll likely end up with a long and soft fluffy coat that can vary in degree of shedding.
These little dogs need a lot of consistency and firmness in their training. Yes, they’re small, but they have huge personalities and may attempt at establishing pack dominance in the home. Otherwise, they’re an excellent addition to any family.
24. Toy Pom Terrier
Parent Breeds: Toy Fox Terrier x Pom
The Toy Pom Terrier is the ultimate mixed toy dog breed. While they may look like cute plush toys, they certainly don’t act like it. Pom Terriers have big and bright personalities that’ll capture your heart in an afternoon.
Like with the Chihuahua, the Pom Terrier “suffers” from small dog syndrome. In other words, they try to compensate for their small size with a fearless and courageous attitude. So if you have strangers around, they’ll make sure to stand their ground.
Otherwise, the Pom Terrier is a pleasantly happy and cheerful little dog. With members of the pack, they’ll fully embrace whether another dog, child or senior. Pom Terriers are the perfect fit for nearly any household!
RECOMMENDED: 19 Interesting Terrier Mixes
Parent Breeds: Cairn Terrier x Pomeranian
Cairanian Terriers are robust designer dogs that combine the Cairn Terrier and the Pom. That being said, it’s not unusual for one to live up to 15 years despite being a fragile 10 inches and 11 pounds.
These dogs are not as popular as you’d think. As a result, there’s little information on the personalities and temperaments of this Pom mix. However, you can expect the Pom’s fluffy thick coat in popular Pomeranian colors.
It’s likely that Cairanians will be highly intelligent with a favorable temperament. Still, it’s important that they receive the necessary socialization to tolerate other animals and kids. But considering how the Cairn Terrier loves children, this shouldn’t be a problem.
26. Yorkie Pom
Parent Breeds: Yorkie x Pomeranian
You can probably guess from the name that this mix combines two widely popular lap dogs; the Yorkie and Pomeranian. Also called the Yoranian, the Yorkie Pom is undeniably a tiny dog that stands no higher than 10 inches.
And while they are petite, they’re surprisingly sturdy dogs. But this doesn’t mean they can withstand the rough play of small children. We caution kids need to learn how to respect a dog before letting them play.
If you’re looking for a deep bond with your companion dog, the Yoranian is the perfect dog. They’ll stick to you and may become a little distressed when you leave. So because of this, we think they’re some of the best dogs for seniors.

Parent Breeds: Shih Tzu x Pomeranian
The Shiranian is a mix that doesn’t first come to mind. But considering Shih Tzus are one of the best Chinese lap dogs, crossbreeding them with the Pomeranian makes a lot of sense. However, the appearance is as unique as Pom mixes go.
The physical attributes may vary, but Shiranians tend to inherit the iconic Shih Tzu face. At the same time, they’re more likely to inherit the fluffiness of the Pomeranian. Either way, they’re adorable and cute toy companions.
Shiranians don’t like to be left alone. They’re sociable dogs that take their companionship jobs to the next level. So if you’re a busy person or can’t commit to these dogs, it’s best to look elsewhere for your Pomeranian mix.

Parent Breeds: Maltese x Pomeranian
Two adorable companions dogs will inevitably produce an equally adorable mutt. And that’s exactly what the Maltese Pomeranian mix is. They combine all the best qualities of both parent breeds.
For instance, the high adaptive intelligence of the Maltese provides a lap dog that truly understands your emotions and needs. However, the Pomeranian side gives off a vibrant and positive aura guaranteed to brighten your day.
The Maltipom, as expected, has become a huge hit among families in America. Combined with a favorable temperament, they have the good looks that’ll melt your heart with one simple glance. If you have the chance, a Maltipom is a great choice.

Parent Breeds: Pekingese x Pomeranian
The Peek-A-Pom is really as cute as its name. Thanks to this unusual pairing between the Pekingese and Pomeranian, they’re exotic-looking yet irresistible.
The best part about this Pomeranian mix is that they’re likely going to be hypoallergenic. It’s a huge plus for sensitive dog owners. And considering how often the Pom sheds, the Peek-A-Pom is the perfect solution for those not wanting to deal with much grooming.
Because of the Pekingese side, these mixes won’t require an extraordinary amount of physical activities. They much rather sit in your lap. However, they’re not overly attached, making them one of the most balanced and easygoing lap dogs.
Parent Breeds: Pug x Pomeranian
Once again, the Pomeranian is crossbred with another iconic Chinese lap dog. This time, with the fan-favorite Chinese Pug. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny the strangely cute looks of the Pom-A-Pug.
They can be a little mischievous, as seen in Pugs, but at least they’re always entertaining. When you’re with a Pom-A-Pug, there’s never a dull moment in life. They’re funny, loving, expressive and know how to have fun.
On the other hand, these mixes can be very smart and adaptable. Their personalities are magnetic. Put them in a room full of people and they’ll be the center of attention in no time!

Parent Breeds: Husky x Pomeranian
The Pomsky is one of the least obvious choices for crossbreeding. Still, they’re also one of the most popular Pomeranian mixes we have in the dogdom. Just take one look at these “miniature Huskies” and you can see why.
They’re the best option for those that love the appearance of a Husky, but don’t want the trouble of raising a big dog. Pomskies are well-suited for apartment life – even in the most condensed metropolitan cities.
These dogs love the attention. And if you bring one out, they’ll be getting plenty of it. They can be silly at times, but also mischievous with all their playful antics. And while they’re small, Pomskies still need a lot of exercise daily.

Parent Breeds: Sheltie x Pomeranian
The Poshies is a hybrid of the herding-genius Shetland Sheepdog with the companion Pomeranian. As such, the designer dog is known for its high energy, independent mind and happy demeanor.
Despite having a parent herding dog, the Poshies is less active than you might think. Yes, they still need plenty of exercise, but they wouldn’t mind lounging in your lap every now and then. In fact, they’re great cuddling dogs!
Poshies are relatively easy to train. Because of the Sheltie side, their obedience & working intelligence is off the charts. They love to learn and are eager to please, making them top options for new owners and trainers.
Parent Breeds: Toy Poodle x Pomeranian
Like every Poodle mix, the Pomapoo inherits the elegance and dignity of the Poodle, yet retains the bubbly personality of the Pomeranian. This cross has all the best qualities you’d want from both parent breeds.
Known for high intelligence, the Poodle brings the ability to learn commands with ease. Though they may be proud dogs, Pomapoos aren’t as stubborn or strong-willed as other smart dog breeds. In fact, they’re quite biddable dogs.
What’s given is the loyalty and devotion, as seen in both parents. Pomapoos will always have your back because they love you that much. Socialize them and provide a loving environment for these dogs to really thrive.
34. Pom Chi
Parent Breeds: Chihuahua x Pomeranian
The Pom Chi combines two of the world’s most popular companion toy dogs, that is, the Pomeranian and the Chihuahua. You can bet these hybrids are just as popular in the world of designer dogs.
Pom Chis are most ideal for apartment dwellers. While the Pomeranian is small, the Chi is the world’s smallest purebred dog. They really don’t need much space to live a happy and healthy life. However, this doesn’t mean they don’t need to exercise from time to time.
They have all the spunk and sass of the Chihuahua, but with the bright and cheerful vibes of the Pomeranian. Plus, there’s a good chance they’ll inherit the facial features of the Chi and the signature fluffiness of the Pom.

35. Smooth Pom Terrier
Parent Breeds: Smooth Fox Terrier x Pom
Smooth Pom Terriers are not something you’ll see every day. Although rare, the Smooth Pom can be quite the treat with the right environment and owner. The biggest concern with these dogs is the abundance of energy.
According to Wag Walking, Smooth Poms will require a moderate amount of exercise due to their alertness and seemingly unlimited amounts of energy. But if you have energetic kids, they make awesome playmates for them. A huge win-win for parents!
For the most part, Smooth Pom Terriers are easy to train and can be biddable dogs with the right training. They’re very willing to listen to you, just make sure to always train with positive reinforcement and consistency.
