  • Overview

  • The American Eskimo Dog, affectionately called the “Eskie,” is neither American nor Eskimo – they descended from the German Spitz and were brought to America by European immigrants. In the 1930’s, they were trained by the circus to walk tight-ropes and sold as pets after the shows. Today, these dogs are well known for their agility and intelligence, and make great family pets. They come in three different varieties (toy, miniature and standard) and are easily adaptable to any living space.
