Anyone have an american eskimo? I have only known one so far. A friend of my family's owned a american eskimo and a schipperke. All the other american eskimos I've seen, only in pet shops :cries:, were much larger than the one my family's friends owned. Their eskie was named Anna. She was aggressive to almost everyone accept her owners. Than the wife got pregnant and they had to sell her for fear that the baby would be biten. She was not reliable around other people. After a week of being around her, and her owners making her feel comfortable around me I could walk her, pick her up, hold her, or do anything else with her that she wouldn't let anyone else but her owners do. She must have sensed I have a good heart. Dogs always know. It made me sad that they had to sell her, but they really couldn't keep her with a baby. The baby would have got biten for sure. She is the jealous type. Anna was bought buy a man with no other dogs, or kids. It was just him and his wife. He seemed like an understanding person, as the dog even bit him the day he came to take her. He didn't seem to mind. Anna was around 6 pounds. Do you have any eskie stories?
