Below you will find an extensive list of health, temperament, and genetic information regarding our Dams and Sires. If there is any other information you are interested in, please do not hesitate to ask! Email us at BluePearlPomskies@BluePearlPomskies.com.

Dam: Torvi Freya, Embark Clear, OFA Vision Exam Complete/Registration Complete – Scroll down for OFA certificates

Breeding Status Planned Litter mid/late 2023
COI
Now this is probably a value you’ve not seen very often, do you know your dog’s COI? (Coefficient of Inbreeding)
Torvi’s COI: 8%
Note: The AKC accepts inbreeding and 20% is a typical inbreeding value for purebred dogs, although geneticists recommend 10% or lower. Lower COI means a healthier dog!
Health Status:
DNA: Pass!
OFA Vision: Exam Pass! Registration pending
Upcoming: OFA Hips prior to breeding
DNA Health
Embark Clear! Low ALT detected.
Low ALT Information:
Low ALT is typical in Pomskies and not a health concern. Torvi has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. A veterinarian should be made aware of this genotype since the vet should lower the average resting ALT activity when analyzing liver values.
Eyes
OFA Clear!

Visually Blue with Starburst Irises. Genetics NDup. Starburst Irises are a husky trait and not a health concern per the OFA Opathamologist Exam, and are very pretty!


Coat
Black and White Wooly (Long Hair, Sheds) – Note that typical coats for Pomskies are Standard, Plush, and Wooly. Wooly coats are the fluffiest!
Temperament
Calm, Affectionate, Isolation Anxiety treated and overcome, pups may inherit Isolation Anxiety
Isolation Anxiety Information:
Isolation Anxiety is when the dog does not have enough self-confidence and is anxious when left alone. This is not the same as separation anxiety. This will result in resource hoarding and nervousness in the dog. Training and early socialization is required, which Blue Pearl Pomskies is prepared to already start before you receive your pup.
Dilute
Genetics: DD
No dilute detected. While the dilute gene can potentially make the rare “blue” Pomsky, we tend to avoid dilute genetics due to the health risk of hair loss associated with the dilute gene. While a rare condition, this is the reason we do not actively pursue breeding a dilute line.

About Torvi:

She has the most chill, cuddly temperament! Torvi is extraordinarily fluffy and sweet. She has the best manners out of all our Pomskies. She never tries to steal our food or jump up when she’s not supposed to. She loves her crate and will relax when it’s time to relax. She also loves walks and loves to play fetch, both with humans and with her pack. She struggled with resource guarding, but after some training to teach her that she doesn’t have to protect her toys and food, or people, she became more confident and happy. She loves to dote on our toddler and has mother instincts, even for her furless baby. Her eyes are also the most incredible blue with a starburst pattern. This is not a defect or health concern. The vet ophthalmologist told us it is like a birthmark. The OFA certificate notes the “D3a: Persistent Pupillary Membranes – Iris to Iris” to make a note of this feature that can be hereditary–and we hope to see it in future puppies! Any puppies who exhibit this sort of trait will be OFA eye certified as well to ensure proper vision remains. We look forward to her adorable puppies!

Sire: “Ty” Tiberius Asbjörn, Embark Clear, OFA Vision Exam Complete/Pending Registration

Breeding Status Planned Breeding mid 2023
COI
Now this is probably a value you’ve not seen very often, do you know your dog’s COI? (Coefficient of Inbreeding)
Ty’s COI: 6%
Note: The AKC accepts inbreeding and 20% is a typical inbreeding value for purebred dogs, although geneticists recommend 10% or lower. Lower COI means a healthier dog!
Health Status:
DNA: Pass!
Upcoming: OFA Hips & Vision prior to breeding
DNA Health
Embark Clear! Low ALT detected.
Low ALT Information:
Low ALT is typical in Pomskies and not a health concern. Ty has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. A veterinarian should be made aware of this genotype since the vet should lower the average resting ALT activity when analyzing liver values.
Eyes
OFA Clear!

Visually Blue. Genetics DupDup. Carries recessive genes for green eyes for pups. OFA Vision Exam result is normal, OFA Registration pending.
Coat
Red Wooly (Long Hair, Sheds) – Note that typical coats for Pomskies are Standard, Plush, and Wooly. Wooly coats are the fluffiest!
Temperament
Mischievous, Affectionate, bursts of energy but loves his naps, Separation Anxiety overcome
Isolation Anxiety Information:
Separation Anxiety is when the dog does not like to be alone. This can make crate training take longer than usual. Litter may inherit Separation Anxiety and Blue Pearl Pomskies will treat this by early socialization and crate training basics before you receive your pup.
Dilute
Genetics: DD
No dilute detected. While the dilute gene can potentially make the rare “blue” Pomsky, we tend to avoid dilute genetics due to the health risk of hair loss associated with the dilute gene. While a rare condition, this is the reason we do not actively pursue breeding a dilute line.

About Ty:

Ty is an adorable and breathtaking red with bright blue eyes. His personality shines through and he loves to play, make sure you’re watching his antics, and generally anything that involves you!

Physically, he’s a tiny boy and perfect for breeding a micro line. His pairing with Torvi will ensure puppies are in the Toy and Mini range, resulting in the most adorable Pocket Pomskies! His pairing with Torvi will also result in puppies that are either red or black and white, and inherit their parents’ mask pattern. The rare possibilities of this paring include a silver Pomsky or a Pomsky with green eyes, or bi-colored eyes (left eye is a different color than the right eye).

Personality-wise, he is amazingly friendly and great with children and other animals. He shows patience with cats and recognizes his audience. He really is a people-pleaser! (Or a cat-pleaser?) His crate training took longer than our other dogs, but that is partially our fault because we couldn’t resist that little face when he wanted to sleep at our feet. He was potty-trained impressively early at 11 weeks (which was all him, not us!) so we permitted it. Who could resist that little face?
