American Eskimo Dog Characteristics

The American Eskimo Dog, or "Eskie" as they are lovingly referred to, is a non-sporting breed that comes in standard, miniature, and toy sizes. These absolutely adorable and beautiful dogs are easily trained and very eager to please.  As a result, they fit in with most families and are also very social with other animals.

Though commonly confused for a mini version of the Samoyed breed, the American Eskimo breed is much newer and was bred to be an all-around work dog. Originally from Germany, these dogs were brought over in the 1800s and known as the "German Spitz." The easiest way to tell the breeds apart is their size; the American Eskimo is almost always smaller, with the largest versions of the breed nearly matching the smallest examples of the Samoyed.
 
While the toy variety only stands around 9 inches at the shoulder, the standard Eskie can stand around 19 inches tall. Commonly seen in all white or biscuit-colored coats, the friendly temperament and variety of sizes make the American Eskimo a popular choice for those living in apartments or small spaces. Make sure you provide these free-thinking dogs with obedience training and early socialization to ensure they don’t run the house for you!
 
They are very smart and train well, and can be agile with tricks and athletic abilities. They’re sweet, friendly, and extremely affectionate with their families and friends, but might be a bit shy around strangers. Since they’re active and intelligent, it’s a good idea to give them daily exercise and new activities on a regular basis.
