The American Eskimo Dog is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the non-sporting group. This doggo goes by a couple of other nicknames, such as the Eskie, Miniature Eskimo Dog, and the American Eskimo Spitz. Initially from Germany in the early 1900s, this dog breed was first developed for farming and guarding. Today, they’re loyal, smart, and versatile. If you want to learn more about American Eskimo Dog puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get American Eskimo Dog Puppies

As with all dog breeds, you should be able to find this doggo anywhere you can adopt dogs. For example, you can call your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have American Eskimo Dog puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. It’s a good idea to adopt and not shop since these dogs are often surrendered or abandoned by their previous owners and need good homes. Howlsrescue…

Alternatively, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy, then you can go through a reputable breeder. You’ll be able to find ethical breeders listed on the AKC Marketplace. However, you should also research breeders yourself. You’ll be able to tell the good ones from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Want to meet with you in person, allowing you to meet the parents and the litter
  • Be able to answer all of your questions about anything
  • The breeder will have the dogs live in their home as part of the family without kennels

In addition, the breeder will make health screen and genetically test the parents to ensure it’s healthy and safe to breed them. Then, they’ll get the puppies tested.

If you find a breeder that does not do the above, you’ll want to avoid them. They could be a puppy mill or backyard breeders. These breeders, unfortunately, do not breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average cost of American Eskimo Dog puppies is between $1,000 and $3,000. However, the price can depend on a few factors, such as:

  • The popularity of the breed
  • The breeder’s location
  • The number of puppies in the litter
  • The time of year

Appearance

The American Eskimo Dog can come in three sizes. For example, they can be Toy sized, growing to be about nine to 12 inches tall, weighing six to ten pounds. Also, they can be Miniature, growing to be about 12 to 15 inches tall and weighing between ten and 20 pounds. Finally, they have a Standard size, growing to be about 15 to 19 inches tall and weighing between 25 and 35 pounds. So, they’re small to medium-sized dogs.

Also, they have a medium double coat that can only come in white or white & biscuit.

Temperament

There’s a lot to love about this dog breed. For example, the American Eskimo Dog is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they’re excellent with young children and meeting other people. However, when meeting other dogs, this pup needs early socialization and training.

They are a great watchdog and will bark to alert you of something. However, some of this behavior can be corrected with training if you don’t want them barking a lot. Luckily, this doggo is easy to train.

Also, they have high energy levels. They can do well living in an apartment but prefer to have a bigger house with a fenced-in yard where they can run around. Skierrescue…

American Eskimo Dog Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the first year, you’ll want to bring your American Eskimo Dog puppy to the vet a few times. This will allow you to keep track of their growth and development. Also, you can keep them up to date with their vaccinations. Then, every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

Luckily, this dog breed is relatively healthy. However, they are prone to a few health issues, such as:

  • Retinal Dysplasia
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Addison’s Disease

This doggo has an average lifespan of about 13 to 15 years with proper care.

Diet

As with all dogs, you want to ensure that the dog food you give your American Eskimo Dog is good for their age, breed size, and weight. Also, make sure your vet approves it.

Otherwise, you can provide them with high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

When it comes to keeping this doggo clean, you’ll want to bring them to a professional grooming salon at least once a month. There they can get a good cleaning, clipping, and bath. However, you can also bathe them as needed at home.

Also, this dog breed sheds a moderate amount. To keep the shedding under control, you’ll want to brush their fur at least two to three times per week.

Finally, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears, and trimming their nails regularly.
