Benji

benji1 benji2

BENJIBenji is about 2 years old (as of September 2021) and was an owner surrender. Benji spent about 12 hours a day in a crate because of his owner’s work schedule. Benji is WONDERFUL. He has a great personality and temperament. Benji loves people, he loves other dogs, and he loves lots of treats.

Benji does well on a leash and enjoys walks, but also loves tearing around the yard chasing the other dogs. We don’t know how he would do with cats, but because he is so submissive he would probably leave them alone. He doesn’t have an aggressive bone in his body.

The only negative…he’s a BARKER…but then if you know the breed….Eskies are known for their strong and persistent vocal skills.

Benji is fostered near Cincinnati, Ohio. We will not ship him or have him adopted cross country. We have adopted in the past to folks on the east coast. Just email us first and we will tell you if you qualify to adopt him. He would do better with someone that knows the breed and their temperament. Please read our requirements for adopting.

We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com.

 

Kibo

kibo1 kibo2

KIBOKibo was born in April 2021 on an Amish puppy mill farm and adopted by a loving family but who did not understand or know the breed and the temperament of Eskie puppies. Kibo is a barker and a chewer, typical of Eskie puppy behavior. Kibo was not socialized with other people but is getting better at accepting strangers touching him.

Kibo was not socialized with other dogs, but has overcome that issue while living with lots of other Eskies. He does prefer his own breed over that of other dogs.  

Kibo is house and crate trained, fixed and fully vetted. He walks fairly well on a leash. He needs another dog to play with. Kibo will be an adorable mini Eskie when fully grown.

He is fostered near Cincinnati, Ohio. We will not ship him or have him adopted cross country. We have adopted in the past to folks on the east coast. Just email us first and we will tell you if you qualify to adopt him. He would do better with someone that knows the breed and their temperament. Please read our requirements for adopting.

We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com.

 

Micah

micah1 micah2 micah3

MICAHMicah joined O.A.E.R on Sunday, September 12, 2021. Micah is about 6 years old. Micah was an owner surrender with Lily. Micah was not socialized with other dogs so she is learning about that in her foster home. (The previous adopter before this owner surrender beat her so she can be skittish and shy around new people)

She is very good off leash and comes when called. Her foster home has a fenced yard for her to get accustomed to the new people.

Micah is fostered near Cincinnati, Ohio. We will not ship her or have her adopted cross country. We have adopted in the past to folks on the east coast. Just email us first and we will tell you if you qualify to adopt her.  Micah can be adopted by someone that has experience with American Eskimos, knows the breed,  and understands their temperament. Please read our requirements for adopting.

We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com.

Lexi

lexi-2 lexi1 lexi3

LEXILexi joined the O.A.E.R. rescue coming up on 2 years this November, 2021, from a horrible backyard breeder. She was extremely feral. We could not touch her and she was not learning to be house trained. She lived in an open barn and just pumped out puppies for profits. That has all changed for our 8-year-old Momma dog.  Lexi now likes to sleep in bed with her foster family, likes to beg for a treat, and seems to tolerate being picked up and carried around. She likes to bark at her foster Mom for treats and attention.

Lexi likes other dogs, but is not that playful. She lives in a foster home where her son and daughter live as well. They were foster failures and now have a wonderful home! Lexi keeps the offspring in line when they misbehave.

To be considered to adopt our sweet Lexi, it is mandatory that you have a fenced yard. You cannot live longer than 5 hours away due to her being a flight risk. She’ll have to get to know you and trust you first before being on a leash or allowed in an open area.

Lexi is fostered near Cincinnati, OH. We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com.

 

Naga

naga-3 naga-2 naga-1

NAGA.  Meet our NAGA! She was born on January 20,2021. She is all puppy. She plays, she chews, she digs, and she barks a lot!! She will jump up on you to be held, and your reward will be lots of kisses. She was bought at a pet store which means she was taken away from her mother way to young. So she has mommy issues, like separation anxiety and not knowing when to stop at certain things. She is working on her housetraining, and is almost completely done.  She is all legs, and will probably be a standard female Eskie. She shows signs of being an alpha which is no surprise for a standard female Eskie. She is OK on a leash, but we would like to see her in a fenced yard to burn off all that energy. We are requiring she have a dog that is young and her size so they can play all day, and become her buddy. She’ll CHASE cats!  She is fixed, chipped, has all her shots, heartworm tested.  We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com.

 

Chipper

chipper1092119 chipper2092119 chipper3092119 chipper4092119 chipper5092119 CHIPPER is learning how to be social with other dogs. He was owned by an elderly person that had health issues, so Chipper did not interact much with other dogs. He is learning to get along with other dogs, but fancies the ladies. He is neutered. He likes to bark.  He likes to do things when he wants too!  He loves to be outside in the yard, go for car rides and look out the window or hang his head out the window.  He will follow you around the house and sleep on the floor next to your bed. He is in great health and acts more like a 5 year old dog, not a 11 year old dog.

We are taking applications. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bebe

bebe-1

BEBE has to have the best developed vocal chords of any Eskie I have met, and i have met many! ROFL She is house and crate trained. She gets along with all size dogs, ages, and sexes. She does prefer to run with bigger dogs. She is 7 yrs old, about 23 lbs, spayed, all shots, and had a dental. If she is not running with the other dogs, she is laying on the couch with her head in your lap. She loves to sleep by your feet in bed. She is a food guarder, so she does eat in her crate. We are working on that issue.

We are taking applications on her, so please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com. She is being fostered near Cincinnati, OH.

Michael

michael2michael1

michael01092119-33 michael2092119-33Meet our angel, MICHAEL! Michael is a standard male Eskie 11 yrs old, and 40lbs.

We rescued Michael from a high kill shelter here in Ohio. He joined us back in December 2018 and he was in really rough shape. We are not sure, but who ever dumped him totally neglected our boy. He had tumors removed, all benign, a much needed dental ( only lost a few teeth) and a treatments for severe ear and skin infections. He has the best foster Mom and Dad that nursed him back to health. He lives with other dogs and enjoys trotting around the yard with them. One of his favorite things is hanging with the man of the house. He is a gentle giant. He is house trained, neutered, and fully vetted. He has some arthritis so not a lot of stairs for our guy. He is fostered near Cincinnati, OH.

Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application.

 

 

 

 


Hayley

hayle2 hayley1

HAYLEY is a 3 year old female mini Eskie. We took Hayley and 2 other female Eskies from the mills of Ohio on November 1st. Hayley came with her sister Hannah. They seem to be bonded and hang out in their crate together. The crate for them is a safe place away from humans.

They are comfortable with their foster Mom giving them baths, picking them up, and trimming their nails.

Hayley is fully vetted, micro-chipped, spayed, de-wormed, and heart worm negative. She is house trained. Hayley is OK on a leash but prefers a fenced yard to run and play.

Hayley and Hannah are fostered near Indianapolis. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.

 

 

Snowball

snowball1 snowball2 snowball3

SNOWBALL is 5 years old and 52 lbs of standard female Eskie. We saved her back in December 2019 from an Ohio shelter.

Snowball is physically strong and is an active young girl. She does pull on a leash, so her foster family is working with her on that. Snowball does do some simple commands. She is good with cats. Snowball needs a slow introduction to other dogs if they have the same energy. She seems to want to be the queen of her home.  Snowball is fully vetted, micro-chipped and spayed. She is on a weight loss program at her foster home.

Snowball is fostered near Cleveland, Ohio. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.

 

Klondike

Klondikeklondike-4.

Meet our Klondike.

This neutered male Eskie was born around April 2020. He is full of energy. He enjoys jumping up on you for lots of love and attention. He is fairly good on a leash, but really enjoys a fenced yard to run. Klondike wants to be the alpha of the house and does well playing with other dogs. Klondike will not go in a crate, and does not like a crate. He sleeps in a cool place like a laundry room. He is being fostered in Cincinnati, OH so you’ll have to come to Ohio with the family, both 2 and 4 legged members for an introduction. We have no idea if he likes cats. He will probably want to play with them. He can be rough with the dogs, so we are not sure. We are taking applications. Please email us at OhioEskieRescue@outlook.com

 

 

 

 

Foxy

foxy

Our little Foxy!

Foxy is about 8lbs, 5.5 years old, fixed, fully vetted and chipped. She prefers to be the queen of her castle but will do fine with other small quiet dogs. She is now enjoying playing with other dogs, but barks the whole time.

Foxy is working on potty training, but can’t hold it for longer then 6 hours. She does better just being taken outside frequently for potty breaks in a fenced yard. No crate for Foxy. She will spin in circles, bark, and pee in her crate. Foxy had a few owners before she joined our rescue, and they did not treat our little one very well, so it took her time to warm up to us. She now sleeps with her foster family. Most cats are bigger than her, but if they leave her alone that will be good. No small children or children with loud voices and energy. Foxy really needs a quiet home. NO apartment life for her. She needs a fenced yard. Foxy will need time to learn to trust her new family. She is fostered near Cincinnati, OH.

See more on Facebook

Applicants wanting to adopt one of our dogs will have to come to Ohio.  We do not transport or fly dogs to any location.  We want to meet the new family and see the interaction between the dog and human(s). If you have a dog it is required that the dog(s) come with the family so we can see the interaction between the dogs.

You will have to fill out an application to adopt one of our dogs. We require a vet reference and home visit.

We will not adopt out to owners that have an invisible fence. Invisible fencing does not protect the dog from outsiders, animals and other harm.

If you do not practice proper care of your past or current dogs you will be denied.  All dogs need an annual wellness exam with the Vet. State law requires all dogs be vaccinated for rabies and have a valid tag.
