Totem. Totem. My family has owned an American Eskimo for the past ten years and it has been an enjoyable experience. In fact when my family first called our American Eskimo "Ajax" before finding an Alaskan-style name, and I think I choose "Ajax." However, according to Nancy Hofman, American Eskimos are sometimes called "’Eskie . . . a shortening of the name ‘American Eskimo." (n.p) What I am going to cover within the next couple of minutes is some general information about American Eskimos, including some American Eskimo statistics and how to care for an American Eskimo dog, because they need some tender, love and care.

According to the American Eskimos, american eskimo, american eskimo puppies, purebread american eskimo, american eskimo dog breeders directory web site American Eskimo, "is a descendant from the German Spitz. His face, coat and lush tail are Spitz-type." In fact, Totem’s coat is very soft and is gentle to pet, however, when he sheds or "shedding his undercoat… This usually happens twice a year during season changes." (D, Mary—Mother of Casear, n.p.) Or in this family when he needs to be grooomed again.

According to the Heart Bandits – American Eskimo Dog Rescue web site "American Eskimo dogs are white or cream color dogs which come in standard, miniature, and toy varieties." Totem is a mostly white American Eskimo dog except for his eyes and his black nose. Returning to the Heart Bandits web site, "The standard variety ranges from 15" to 19" tall . . . miniature variety ranges from 12" to 15" tall . . . toy variety ranges from 9" to 12" at the shoulder." So for Totem I would say he is in the miniature to standard ranges. Totem like other American Eskimo dogs who "looks like a sled dog and is at home in snow, ice, and cold temperatures." (Woolf, Norma Bennet n.p.) When my family shoves snow each winter at the Cabin, Totem finds a mound of snow and is like king of snow mountain.

Now how to handle and care for an American Eskimo. The most important thing is to walk your American Eskimo often. From personal experience walking Totem in Hahn’s Peak Village is like a regular daily chore. This is Totem’s time to go to the restroom. The second most important thing is to feed your dog with regular dog food. However, Totem does get spoiled, but [and I mean the word but] the purpose is to hide his pills in cottage cheese or in sour cream. Most of the time Totem will receive people’s food because he leaves a seed for a extra snack depending on the people food’s menu.

To conclude American Eskimos are one of the best brands of dog in the world. They are great companion, and you will enjoy any pet for years and years to come. I wonder why American Eskimos has become popular today?
