The American Eskimo Dog comes in three sizes, and this includes the toy American Eskimo Dog, the miniature American Eskimo Dog, and the standard American Eskimo Dog. The American Eskimo is a well-balanced typical model of a working type Spitz dog, ranging in size from 11 to 19 inches. The body is well balanced and proportioned, appearing neither clumsy nor racy. The length of body from point of shoulder to the point of buttocks is the same as the height from withers to ground, presenting an overall square appearance. The head is wedge-shaped, with erect triangular ears, and readily distinguished black points (nose, lips, and eye rims). The American Eskimo has a thick, white double coat. The chest, neck, and forepart of the shoulders are typically covered with a lion-like mane. The backs of the forelegs are well feathered. The rump and hind legs down to the hock are covered with thick hair that forms the characteristic “trousers.” The ruff (mane) and long outer guard hairs are typically more profuse on males than females. The tail is richly plumed and carried over the back. With its alert, smooth carriage, the American Eskimo presents a picture of natural beauty, alertness, strength, and agility.

he American Eskimo Dog is a very playful and energetic dog, although many do calm down as they grow older. This is a breed that loves companionship and play, and has plenty of spirit, courage, and bags of curiosity. The American Eskimo Dog can get bored easily if not kept entertained, and this can lead to destructive behavior. These dogs are intelligent and quick to learn, but can also be very independent and strong willed. Very good at problems solving and doing tricks, these dogs should be fine when it comes to training. However, you should also bear in mind that the American Eskimo Dog loves to bark and dig, and therefore may not be the best choice for those looking for a peaceful lifestyle, although they are well suited to inexperienced dog owners as well as more experienced ones.

You should find that the American Eskimo Dog gets on well with older, considerate children, and should be okay with other dogs and pets, although they can be predatory when around smaller creatures such as birds and rodents. The American Eskimo Dog can also have a jealous streak when it comes to other animals getting attention. Sensitive and alert, the American Eskimo Dog makes a good watchdog.

The American Eskimo dog breed has its origins in the Spitz family of dogs traced back some 6,000 years to the Peatbog dog. The Spitz family of dogs, known as the northern or Nordic breeds, include the Pomeranian, the Samoyed, the Keeshond and Artic sled dogs. The family has wolf-like characteristics with erect pointed ears and double coats.
The life expectancy of the American Eskimo Dog is around 13-15 years. There are a number of health problems associated with the breed, and this includes seizures, luxating patella, diabetes, and epilepsy. Make sure that the parents of your puppy have OFA and CERF certification. Also look out for deafness in those American Eskimo Dogs with blue eyes.
