found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.
BOO is a very cute neutered male, white American Eskimo. His age is unknown but will be updated soon. He arrived at the shelter on May 17, 2006, with his brother Radley, as lost or stray dogs.
There is a 7-day stray dog owner claim wait period before he can be adopted.
FUN FACTS about the American Eskimo Dog History:
The "Eskie" is a member of the spitz family, or Nordic breeds. The American Eskimo Dog is almost certainly descended from the European spitzes, including the white German Spitz, the white Keeshound, the white Pomeranian and the Volpino Italiano (white Italian Spitz). After World War II, breeders on the West Coast may even have incorporated some Japanese Spitz into the Eskie.
During the 19th century in this country, small, white spitz-type dogs were commonly found in communities of German immigrants. These dogs were probably descendants of white German Spitz, white Keeshonden or large white Pomeranians that immigrated with their European masters. They came to be known collectively as American Spitz.
Late in the 19th century, the American Eskimo Dog was extremely popular for use in trick-dog acts in the many traveling circuses throughout the United States. The breed excelled in this job because of their sparkling white coat and quickness, and they possessed an innate intelligence, trainability and unsurpassed agility. These dogs traveling with the circuses helped develop and spread the popularity of the American Eskimo Dog.
In 1917 the name "American Spitz" became "American Eskimo Dog" although the exact reason for this is unknown. Now, aren't you glad you read these Fun Facts?!
