American Eskimo Dog  


The American Eskimo Dog is a descendent of the European Spitzes and its name has nothing to do with Eskimo culture. An agile dog on the smaller side (9”-19”), the American Eskimo Dog is a quick learner and eager to please. They are friendly, but also natural watchdogs and protective of their families. Their coats are beautiful, but sheds, and requires regular brushing and bathing.
