The American Eskimo is a loving companion that is intelligent, playful, and always charming. Great with children, these dogs make for excellent family dogs, and can be great watchdogs. Because of their diminutive size, they can sometimes be given more leeway than larger dogs, leading them to believe that they are pack leader, which should be avoided. Outside of a potential to develop "small dog syndrome," in which they see themselves as the ruler of the house, these dogs are stupendous family dogs.
The American Eskimo dog can be snow white, a biscuit cream color, or a mix of both.
