A visit from a Pompoo

     Me in photo above holding Gucci

Today I was out in my backyard enjoying my rain free warm sunny day sipping tea and making future plans for my garden this summer.  While I was  contemplating on this plan, I got a surprise visit from  my kid  brother who was pet sitting for a friend.  In his arms was the cuttest little ball of fluffy fur I have ever seen.

That fluffy ball is called a Pompoo or Pomapoo,  a new breed or hybrid cross that is part Poodle and part Pomeranian. I was so smitten I did some research to find out more about it and here's what I found....

The Pompoo is a sweet, friendly little dog that makes a good pet for families. It gets along with other pets and  is great for elderly owners and good with children, I witness this first hand  as I watched it play and chase my 8 year old  niece around the yard.

Like the  poodle, care should be taken not to over pamper the Pompoo or it will become very spoiled . It's hard to resist spoiling such a cuttie pie like Gucci, but it must be done or one could have a possible brat on their hands.


Because of their loyalty and closeness to family, some Pompoos' may suffer from separation anxiety and bark when separated from their owners. However with  training a Pompoo may learn to overcome this if it's trained  early on.

Pompoos require very little space, so it can handle apartment living and smaller yards, but be sure to give it play time and walks because it is an active, fun loving little dog. The Pompoo should be brushed daily to avoid knots and tangles. 

Pompoos' are such sweeties, they will not make good watch dogs although they will bark when they hear noises.  I fell in love with this dog and  may consider it along with a second breed that's a good watch dog.

I would love to hear from you if you own a Pomapoo or another breed that is a good compainion and watch dog.... More info can be found on the net about this breed.....just type in Pompoo or Pomapoo. 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments, I love to hear from you.


  1. What a sweet looking little dog. How could you not fall in love looking at that face?

    We like laid back dogs, so little barkers are not ones we would like at all. A dog that barks at every little noise is irritating to us.

    Little dogs like this are definitely more hyper.

    Have fun looking for a dog that you will love and will be great for you.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments.

  2. What a sweet ball of fluff!
    I can just imagine all the grooming someone has to do.
    If I did get a dog, it would have to a wiener dog.

  3. My thoughts exactly Flower lady it has the sweetest face I've every seen. I'm with you about hyper little dogs, I'm looking for a cute little companion that only barks if danger is near.

    Rosey... I think a wiener dog is a good choice also I have him on my list along with a few others.

    Thank you both for stopping by.

  4. He is just so cute. My little granddaughter wants a poodle, but this little guy is just too cute.

  5. Dear Vetsy, I can see why you are so smitten by this cutie! P. x

  6. Ann and Pam I have to repeat it, he is the cutest little thing I've ever seen.

  7. Oh he is the cutest!! How are the garden plans coming along? And school? Thanks for stopping by to visit. (And feel free to post more things about cute furry animals!) :)

  8. Angela a green house will surely be in my future. I made a little progress clearing out some weeds and trimming a few shrubs, but the cool rains once again is getting in the way of my plans.. darn it!

    School is coming along.... Thank you for asking.

  9. Thanks Steph..I'm still I but him on my list.

  10. Hello Vetsy girl !
    My goodness this little fluff ball is adorable ! I haven't heard of this breed before .. but then again I am a cat person. How ever this little guy would make me ponder? .. they are cross breeding so many types of dogs it makes you wonder what new one will be next ?

  11. I HAVE a pomapoo..Her name is Lulu and she's one of the best dogs I've ever met. She is VERY smart due part from the poodle in her but also fluffy and adorable like a pom! She does have a bit of separation anxiety but eventually she gets over it! She is extremely loyal and I can walk her WITHOUT a leash. I love my little ball of fluff ^_^
