Our darling little Walker is a pint sized ball of energy! Just one and a half years old, this tiny American Eskimo Dog found himself incarcerated in a local animal control facility, after he was discovered roaming the countryside, a stray. Poor Walker became very nervous and fearful in the shelter, and was transferred to our rescue, so that we could allow him to relax in a comfortable foster home environment.

Walker is an adorable little guy and weighs only 12 pounds. He has the typical Eskie physique, with the plume tail arched over his spine, and a full double coat. He has quite a bit of biscuit coloring and his brown eyes have blue accents, suggesting that there may be some small bit of Husky DNA in his lineage.

Walker has shown himself to be an amiable, affectionate fellow, who craves human attention. He is as friendly as can be with folks he knows, as well as strangers. When he first came to us he was a bit of a wild child, but calmed down quickly with some very basic obedience training. He is responding nicely to his commands, and with calm leadership, he has turned into a perfect little gentleman.

Walker is a family friendly little guy, although he has a tendency to play favorites and cozy up to one or two family members while thumbing his nose at others. He has a bit of the Eskie brat about him and sometimes likes to test his boundaries. Walker's adopters will need to demonstrate firm leadership and a willingness to make corrections when necessary. He would be best served in an active adult home, with adopters who enjoy a little tag along buddy on their adventures. Walker is an energetic boy, and still has a bit of his puppy mojo. He needs at least a couple of brisk leash walks each day, as well as focused playtime to meet his mental and physical needs.

Walker could easily join a multi-dog home, with other small dogs. He has co-existed nicely with the unruly gaggle of Min Pins and Chihuahuas in his foster home. He does have a hefty dose of the Napoleon Complex, and tends to voice a vigorous and unwanted opinion to much larger dogs, sometimes getting himself into trouble with his big mouth. Adopters should exercise caution if they are visiting dog parks, or allowing Walker off-leash at public places like the beach.

Walker is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in optimal health, and has been recently neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and canine flu. He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and has been on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.
