Hamilton is a handsome southern gentleman that was found in rough shape as a stray in Texas. He is a younger, energetic fellow that is eager to please. He enjoys the company of other dogs once properly introduced and loves being with his people. He can be cat curious, but does well with supervision. He is still learning his manners and does have a tendency to jump. He would do best in a home without young children.
He has a condition called Addison's disease that is well controlled with a low dose of prednisone once daily.
Hamilton will be happiest in a home where he is able to play fetch, go for walks, and be the center of attention. He is kennel trained and has come a long way with potty training but still has occasional accidents if his signals are missed. He is very smart and has learned a few simple commands such as sit, stay, and down. He will make a wonderful addition to the right home.

Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state.
If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers. There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
Eskie Rescuers United American Eskimo Dog Rescue, Inc. is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please click the donation button below to make a tax-deductible donation through PayPal and help make a difference to even one American Eskimo dog!
