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.
All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly American Eskimo Dog, you're getting lots of DNA from a breed highly regarded for its high intelligence and its desire to perform. If you'd like a dog who wants to learn tricks, this mix is a potential match.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, expect a mostly American Eskimo Dog mix to be a compact, fluffy Spitz-type dog that cries out to be hugged. They are undeniably attractive but probably won't do well in hotter climates.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the American Eskimo Dog is highly regarded for its intelligence. Plan on a dog that needs both physical and mental stimulation. A bored dog could be a destructive dog.

"Omega3 acids have been shown to help in many health conditions, the most for these 5: - Osteoarthritis - Inflammatory skin disorders (including allergies) - Cardiovascular disorders - Renal disease - Cognitive function and neurological health In cases where disease (i.e. ostheoarthritis) is already present, it might be challenging to get required dose through diet, thankfully supplements can help there. In order to get the therapeutic effect you need to dose them correctly, for this you need to consult your vet, so they can recommend the dose and product you should use. Keep in mind this is not a short term treatment, omega3 fatty acids have a buildup period of 6-8 weeks before they reach high enough concentrations in your dogs body, and they need to be used all the time, if you make a pause, then you need a buildup period again, and your dogs health might deteriorate if it benefited from omega 3 supplementation. To sum up: - Consult your vet about the dose. - Use products that contain both EPA and DHA in highest concentration possible and right ratio. - Don't use on and off but permanently.."
