The Poshies is a hybrid dog mixed between the Pomeranian and the Shetland Sheepdog. Because of this dogs mix in ancestry it can be difficult to determine the exact characteristics of the pom sheltie mixed dog but we have compiled some helpful information about these dogs from current owners as well as breeders.
These breed is going to be on the small and will weight around 13-17 pounds when fullyg rown. The ears should stand up and the tails are curled. The coat is fluffy just like the Pomeranian.
Pom-Sheltie mix’s are said to be smart but very energetic and will require lots of play and exercise time. They will do well in an apartment but will require daily walks. They are smart and easily trainable. These dogs are very likely to bond closely with their owners and because of their small size will make a perfect lap dog.

Dee writes: Pebbles Elizabeth was born on December 7, 1998. She graduated from Petsmart Puppy school when she was about 6 or so months old. She is sooooooo smart. She knows multiple tricks and understands as much as a child does. She loves her Zeeby Zebra, Cow, and especially her Daddy. She cocks her head to the side when you ask her where her “leash” is. Her boyfriend was the neighbor Irish Setter, Willie. They were like the handsome jock – cute cheerleader couple. I always tell her how beautiful she is, and she understands it!

I have a Poshie, she is very skittish and shy, and has ALLOT of energy! My Poshie has more of the Pomeranian in her.
Oh my gosh! This dog is so cute! Right now I have a Shetland Sheepdog, but next time I will definitely be getting a Poshie to have a super fluffy, mini herding dog! Naww!! 🙂
I have had a poshie that I got from the humane society. He is 11 and is the friendliest, most even tempered dog I have ever had. He is loved by everyone who meets him and is almost catlike in the way he keeps himself clean. He is a wonderful size, about 21 lbs. He spends the summer at my cabin on an island and people that I don’t even know are friends with Milo.
I have a beautiful Poshie but I don’t have a camera to put his picture on this page. He is very Loyal to both my husband and I. One morning he saved my husbands life by hearing him not be able to breathe and came and got me out of bed so I could go rescue my husband. He is smokey gray with white on many places on his body. He stands on his hind legs for a long while so we can rub his stomach. His name is Smokey.
i have a 6 month old Poshie. his name is Shine he smart yes, very energetic yes. he use his cuteness when he do something wrong. he wants to kiss(lick) every sec he can..and he loves to be on his back legs and he love to bite ONLY MY SHOES. but all and all he complete my family
At last now I know what my Chauncy is …he’s a Posshie! At the shelter where I got him they tried to convince me that he was a long haired chihuahua but we both knew better. Because he’s sooo beautiful everyone thinks he’s a girl but I explain it away by saying he’s transgendered or a trsnsvestite (no one believes me). In spite of that tomorrow I am entering a dog show and I want him to win for the Prettiest and Smallest dog in his class. I have no picture available so just use your imagination and wish us luck.

I believe my dog Bentley may be a Poshie and not a purebred Pomeranian. He is very smart and highly energetic. He weighs about 20 lbs and is 2 years old. He is very protective of our Pomchi, Bijou and watches out for her always. He is very loving and playful.
I recently lost my gorgeous senior Poshi…she was a rescue and filled our household with personality plus, life and love. I miss her so and even though I know she could never be replaced, I am looking to adopt/rescue an adult Poshie.
I had a poshie for 16 years. He was the most beautiful dog and I loved him with all of my heart! I’d like to get another but I don’t know who I could trust as a reputable breeder.
I just lost my Finnegan recently. He was a rescue but said to be a poshie. Pomeranian sheltie mix. He was the best smartest and most loyal dog ever. He was 23 lbs. so more of a Sheltie size. Simply gorgeous. I got him as an adult. I would absolutely love another one. One day.
