Hello. My name is Sara. I came to Power of the Paw when my family could no longer keep me. I had been with them for my entire life, so I'm working on adjusting to a new life. I'm actually doing quite well. I'm very friendly and affectionate, just give me some time to become a bit more secure in my surroundings.

I love being with my humans. So if you're looking for a lap dog, here I am. I just want to know that I'm safe and that you are always there for me if I need you. I do well in a kennel at night. During the day, I might let out a little whine here or there, but overall you can crate me and not have to worry about me being noisy. The truth is though, I am not destructive and may not even need a crate while you're done. I'm likely to just hang around and wait for you to return and then we can get back to cuddling.

I don't know a lot of commands, but I do know the important ones! I can sit and stay on command, no problem. I don't try to bolt out the door or a gate and can patiently wait for permission to leave. Once out on a walk, I walk just fine on a leash and would be perfect for even someone who doesn't have a lot of strength in their hands. I don't need a lot of exercise, so just a few short walks a day will be sufficient.

I'm a huge sweetheart. The breed description of an eskimo says that we were bred as companion animals. That fits me perfectly. I am content to lay by you, and not underfoot. I would do wonderful in a family setting where someone is home during the day or someone who can take me to work. This isn't required of course. Although I've been through so much change and can be nervous and shy, I'm settling in quickly and I'm trusting easily. I'm gaining confidence as I go in and out the door to the outside. Loud noises may spook me but I will face it and then come to you for reassurance. I show no signs of negative reactions such as aggression, resource guarding, or fear of other dogs. I'm pretty hearty for such a little dog.

My foster mom has a really soft voice and talks to me nicely as she pets me. When she talks to me, my ears perk up and I listen with rapt attention. My foster dad is a gentle big guy and he loves on me by scratching my ears and rubbing my belly. I really like how they both tell me I'm so sweet and kind. They call me m'lady. I don't really know that that means, but foster mom says that it's because I'm so proper and well mannered.

If you think we'll make the perfect pair, go to and fill out the application. I'm ready to settle down!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sara, a Rathdrum American Eskimo Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog for sale in Rathdrum, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog dog from a breeder in Rathdrum.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rathdrum already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rathdrum breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Eskimo Dog breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rathdrum paves the way for another one to be saved.
