American Eskimo Dogs

Breed Not Really Linked to Eskimos

Often mistaken for a miniature Samoyed, the American Eskimo dog is not really from Alaska, nor does it have any affiliation with Eskimos.

Known to be a loving and affectionate family dog, the breed has the unusual claim of being bred in three different sizes: standard, toy and miniature.

Whichever its stature, the American Eskimo dog is an easily trained dog originally bred to guard people and their property.

As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
