American Eskimo Dog Breed

American Eskimo Dog

American Eskimo

The American Eskimo resulted from American
breeders cross-breeding the white German Spitz
and promoting the variety.

The spitz family traces its heritage back 6000 years
to the Peat Dog of the New Stone Age lake dwellers.
In many European countries the remains of these dogs have been uncovered. This fostering
began about 100 years ago. To this day it is a big part of America's native-dog heritage, and is only registered with the American Kennel Club. A Toy variety has also been developed.

This dog is very agreeable to most living situations.
They are mostly companion dogs and they are intelligent and hardy dogs that are easily trained and very obedient. They love the snow.
