Pom Terrier Build Information

The Pom terrier is a hybrid cross between a Pomeranian and a toy fox terrier. This exceptionally tiny dog weighs between three and seven pounds. The coat may be short, medium or long, depending on which parent breed’s coat dominates, and it may be any of a variety of colors, including black, brown, blue, cream, sable, brindle, orange or black and tan. Medium and long coats will require regular grooming efforts to prevent tangling and matting. Pom terriers typically have pointy ears that stand upright. Expect high energy from this small package.
