Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
The first generation American Eskimo Dog / Japanese Chin Mix is a cross between a pure American Eskimo Dog and a pure Japanese Chin, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While this mix is uncommon, the result is undeniably attractive.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the American Eskimo Dog / Japanese Chin Mix can take after either parent or appear to be a blend of both. It isn't guaranteed to be all white.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the American Eskimo Dog / Japanese Chin Mix can bring a little of that Esky attitude. Be a good trainer who provides your pet with positive ways of getting attention.
