Igloo the Eskie

Igloo is a very sweet one year old Miniature American Eskimo Dog who is good with other dogs, cats and older children. Younger children make him a bit nervous. Since he is young he has a pretty high energy level. He loves playing with other dogs.

Here you can see him trying to get his foster brother Dante to wrestle.

Igloo is a very sweet boy who just wants to be loved and understood. He is back in foster care because neighbor's children taunted and teased him in his previous home. Because of this, we will only send Igloo to a home with no children or older children who will treat their new family member with the respect he deserves.

Igloo has lived with cats and other dogs. Despite his size, he loves to play hard with other dogs, so his new canine siblings will have to be tolerant of his high energy level and “in their face” play style. He does respect older dogs, and does not bother them.

His new home will have to be willing to go the extra mile to contain him and keep him safe. He has been known to dig under fences, and can jump a baby gate from a standstill. Igloo is crate trained and housebroken. Like any other one-year-old northern breed dog, he will get into things lying around, so supervision and continued training are essential. Igloo knows several commands, and is very eager to please. His favorite motivators are belly rubs, cheese, and little pieces of hot dog. If you think Igloo might be the dog your you, email his foster home for more information.
