American Eskimo Dog Breed
American Eskimo Dog
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.

dogs that are easily trained and very obedient.
