Life with my Eskland

My Eskland,Sam, is a wonderful dog. I have owned him for 10 years and counting. He is about 18" from front feet to shoulders, with long hair, sable coloring (like a sheltie), full collar. He guards me better than my parents. He is very easy to train, he catch on pretty fast. Just like any dog, his impression on certain types of people can be very negative or positive on how he is treated. He is a wonderful dog, all he wants is to please you. He has tried is best to talk to me. He has been hurt by certain men in his life and will be aggressive to those who look like them but can be handled. Also he was ganged up on, while on a chain, by two or three dogs so he tries to be as dominate as possible with other male dogs. The years I have spent with my Sam have been very rewarding. I am still learning great things about this breed. One thing is they are very easy to train. Also I believe they are the ultimate dog, great companion, herding runs through his vanes (and he knows it), as well as hunting, I also believe they would make good sled dogs. The only thing I have that is negative is he is hyper for a regular house pet, but if you want it as a house pet you better have kids around to play.
