Tip of the Week

So you're looking for a breed of dog and you have your heart set on a smaller dog with mid-length white fur. It sounds like you'd be interested in one of the spitz breeds. The toy or miniature American Eskimo might be right up your alley. This dog has a thick medium length overcoat, loves to be with his owner, but may be a little aloof around strangers. You'll need some early training and socialization with this dog, but they are fairly easy to train and enjoy learning tricks. The toy version is 9-12 inches at the shoulders and the miniature version is 12-15 inches at the shoulders.
