Is this dog right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
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.
