Species group:

Other name(s): Eskland

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Eskland is a cross between a pure American Eskimo Dog and a pure Shetland Sheepdog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Eskland is particularly so, with some individuals looking much more like the American Eskimo Dog and others taking after the Shetland Sheepdog side of the family.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, you need to be prepared for the fact that some owners report that their Eskland shares the sensitive nature of the pure Shetland Sheepdog.
