Diamond is a gorgeous standard female who was surrendered to the shelter by her owner, who is on disability and unable to care for Diamond any longer.

Diamond is a great Eskie!  She is a very loving girl and is as soft and cuddly as she looks.  She has been a joy to foster but she is anxious to get to the next chapter of her life with her forever person or family. She is a very active and a young 11 years.  Diamond came to us  heartworm positive and was treated with the gentle kill treatment method:
As of September 2016, she is heart worm negative - and after a few more months of restricted exercise, she says she will be ready to head to the beach!

Diamond really needs a strong alpha owner - she is headstrong and very smart, eager to learn and loves to be with her human, canine, feline pack.  She likes cats BUT also likes that when she chases them, they run……so she HERDS them!  She's getting better but a foster home that has 6 cats who all love dogs and will run for her, kind of makes it hard to train her, when the cats encourage her!

Diamond is crate trained, loves her toys and to gather them, and she is very treat motivated.  She knows 'sit' and 'stay'.  She is a little bit dominant, so she would do better in a home with an experienced owner who could provide consistent leadership and direction.  She loves attention and to be petted and brushed, preferably while sitting on your lap.  She would love a home where she was the star attraction and could be your constant companion.  We can't say enough good things about her though. She is beautiful, loves baths, blew her coat and hardly sheds now. She sleeps at your feet on the bed and rarely moves until you get up.  She loves to play bite!  She's a little vocal at mealtimes but is learning manners.

Diamond is deathly afraid of fireworks and whistles and she will run to the door, gate, etc. to get away. We did treat her with anxiety medicine over July 4  holiday, which helped greatly – and she may benefit from a Thundershirt.

Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state.

If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.

There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.

About Eskie Rescuers United American Eskimo Dog Rescue, Inc. - Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

Eskie Rescuers United (ERU) is made up entirely of volunteers. We don’t have any building or offices; we’re just a group of people who have opened up their homes to foster dogs that are in need. Our volunteers are spread across the Eastern United States, and we keep in contact by email, Facebook, and by telephone. No one is paid a salary and most of us have regular jobs in addition to our volunteer work for ERU. You can help us by being understanding if our volunteers are unable to pick up a dog, or deliver a dog to you, or do things as quickly as you might like. Most of us have to schedule these things around our job and other family commitments.

ERU does not make money by selling dogs. In fact, we lose money with each dog that we foster and adopt out. Most of our money is spent on vet care for our foster dogs. Donations and fundraising help make up the difference.

The dogs we foster come from many places. Some are turned in by their owners who can no longer care for them. Others are found as stray dogs, or for one reason or another they wind up in dog shelters. As you probably know, there are too many dogs without homes in the United States, and the majority of them have to be put to sleep due to overcrowded conditions in shelters. ERU works to save as many American Eskimo dogs that we can by rescuing them. We then foster the dogs in the volunteer’s homes, provide veterinary care, and put a profile for the dog on our website.

We do not "sell" dogs. We find homes for dogs and adopt the dog to you. This means that you cannot just walk off the street and buy a dog from us. You must put in an application to adopt a dog. We screen all of the applicants very carefully; checking references and doing home visits to make sure that the dog will be going to a good home. We try to find a good match between the applicant and the dog. It is a very happy day when a foster dog gets to go to their new home. Since our formation in March of 2003, we’ve adopted out over 3000 dogs. If someone adopts a dog from us and is unable to care for it in the future, we will accept that dog back and find it a new home. So a dog that is adopted through us will never go homeless.
