Eskipoo Puppies for Sale in Portland, ME
The Eskipoo is a dynamic little dog with tons of happy energy and affection. The breed is a mix between the American Eskimo dog and the Poodle. These "Designer dogs" have inherited most of the good traits from each parent, and are perfect companion dogs. With a cheerful disposition and loyal heart, the Eskipoo is sure to make a great addition to your family.
Also known as a "Pookimo", the Eskipoo Stands about 10-12 inches tall and weighs between 10-20 pounds. These portable dogs are never happier than when they are going on errands with their humans or being the center of attention at family gatherings. Because of this, they also have a tendency towards separation anxiety and don't do well when spending long periods of time alone. Make sure to allow for early socialization and obedience training to ensure good behavior while you're away from your dog.
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Eskipoo was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Eskipoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the American Eskimo or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding.
Unfortunately, many experts agree that small dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. This is likely due to the smaller skulls and jaws, which can lead to overcrowding of the teeth. Taking your Eskipoo to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early.
Eskipoos are highly adaptable and make cheerful companions for new dog owners, families, and retired adults alike.
