We don’t know for certain when American Eskimo dogs and Poodles were first crossed. However, we do know the histories of each parent breed.
Poodles originated in Germany and were used as water retrievers. Their intelligence, good temperament, and hypoallergenic traits have made them a favorite dog breed of all time.
Originally known as the American Spitz, the American Eskimo dog was bred to be a multi-purpose farm dog. They were also popular in circuses and trick shows because of their intelligence, agility, and beautiful white coats.
Eskipoos are a designer breed, which means they cannot be AKC registered. However, they can be registered with:
Eskipoos stand 9-15” at the shoulder and weigh around 13-20 lbs.
Eskipoos usually live from 10-12 years.
Since Eskipoos are a mixed breed they may inherit the traits of either parent breed. They may have tight curls like a Poodle or the longer, thicker coat of the American Eskimo dog.
They come in various colors including white, black, cream, brown, gray, and apricot.
How much grooming your Eskipoo needs depends on which of its parents it takes after, but either way, it usually isn’t too bad. If it takes after the Poodle side it will only need occasional trimming and brushing.
If it is more similar to the American Eskimo Dog side it may need more frequent brushing and trimming, as American Eskimo Dogs have longer, thicker fur.
Your Eskipoo will also need its nails trimmed and teeth brushed regularly.
For all crossbreeds, the puppies are susceptible to the conditions of both parents. In order to learn about conditions that may affect your Eskipoo, learn about conditions that may affect American Eskimo Dog and the Poodle.
Here are a few other common things to be aware of:
You can protect your dog from one of the most common health problems: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Like all dog breeds, they are at risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues in dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the thigh bone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip and can result in limping, lameness, or arthritis if it’s not addressed.
Hip and elbow dysplasia can be genetic, or it can be caused by environmental factors such as overeating or injuries.
Here are some ways to prevent hip dysplasia in your puppy:
- – Ask the breeder for an OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip Clearance. Dogs with hip dysplasia shouldn’t be bred.
- – Talk to your vet about the right food for your puppy and stick to the correct amount to prevent unhealthy growth.
- – Keep your puppy from running or jumping excessively on hard surfaces and from standing on their hind legs.
First of all, what causes allergies?
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the fur that dogs shed.
Although no dog is truly hypo-allergenic, Eskipoos are less likely to aggravate allergies than some breeds.
Remember, each puppy has a different combination of genes, so allergens vary from dog to dog. Spending time with a puppy before adopting them is a good way to know if you are triggered by their allergens.
If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.
