The American Eskimo Dog, nicknamed the "Eskie" is most
likely descended from several of the spitz dogs of Europe such as
the German Spitz and Italian Spitz, the white Keeshond and white
Pomeranian, and after World War II, perhaps the Japanese Spitz
too.   German immigrants, during the 1800s, brought small white
spitz type dogs with them to America.   These dogs were generally
known as the American Spitz.   In 1917 the breed was named
the American Eskimo Dog, after a kennel of that era.

The Eskie, all three sizes, is an alert, friendly dog, very
intelligent, and highly trainable.   They should never be shy nor
aggressive.   As family dogs, they are excellent watchdogs.   They
usually bond to all family members, and are considered good with
children.   They enjoy moderate outdoor exercise, about 4 times a
day.   They need a daily brushing to minimize their rather heavy
shedding.   American Eskimo Dog puppies are fast learners,
so training is quite an easy matter and fun.

Toy Size:  9 in. (22.8 cm) to 12 in. (30.5 cm) at withers.
Miniature Size:   >12 in. (30.5 cm) to 15 in. (38.1 cm).  
Standard Size:   >15 in. (38.1 cm) to 19 in. (48.3 cm).   
Life Expectancy:   12 - 14 years.
