About the Breed

 

 

 

 

 

Appearance - The American Eskimo is a well balanced, typical model of a working type Spitz dog, ranging in size from 11 to 19 inches. The body is well balanced and proportioned, appearing neither clumsy nor racy. The head is wedge-shaped, with erect triangular ears, and readily distinguished black points (nose, lips, and eye rims).  The American Eskimo has a thick, white double coat.  The chest, neck, and forepart of the shoulders are typically covered with a lion-like mane.  The tail is richly plumed and carried over the back.  With its alert, smooth carriage, the American Eskimo presents a picture of natural beauty, alertness, strength, and agility.

Characteristics - The American Eskimo is intelligent, alert, and energetic. This breed is loyal and friendly, but can be conservative with strangers.  This breed is a guardian companion animal and must be socialized to enhance their attributes. They get along wonderfully with children and other pets as long as one takes the time to introduce them properly.
