Buddy

buddy1 buddy6

BUDDY – This poor pup was surrendered because his family divorced and not understanding the breed as well.

BUDDY has lots of anxiety over dogs and humans. He is working on his socialization with the help of his foster family 2 and 4 legged. They’re dog lovers for sure. 

Once he gets to know you, he’ll want to cuddle with his human. 

He is now fully vetted, fixed, house trained, and chipped. He’s a long-legged, standard male, that is 3 years old. 

Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application. Fostered in the Cincinnati, OH

 

 

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.

Baby Girl!

This 4 year old standard female Eskie has discovered how to play with dogs. She was actually scared of them at first. She now plays non-stop.

Baby Girl does love to cuddle with a human just as much as she can. She’ll jump on you to give you a hug.

She’s wild on a leash and prefers to be free to run around the yard. She has good recall and loves to come back in the house. You have to go out with her, she has separation anxiety, and needs to see her human.

She wasn’t house trained when she joined us but has grasped the idea after watching the other Eskies.

Fully vetted now, spayed, and chipped.

What a SWEETHEART but she is stubborn like most Eskies !

Fostered in Cincinnati, OH area. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application.

 

Casper

casper1 casper2

Casper

Hello humans from Casper of Ohio American Eskimo Rescue.
This poor pooch was living all alone in a trailer for 8 months after his owner died. We won’t go into all the details but thank God for a few human angels that worked their magic on getting the family to release him to us.
He was in rough shape physically and mentally after all that time while his owner was sick, and then died. He had a dental, all of his shots, and neutered. He gave his foster Mom a hard time at first, but now he is doing great.
He sits by his foster Mom while she is sitting in a chair or on the couch. He follows her around the house and yard as well. He likes to sit, beg, and give paw.
He doesn’t really play with the other Eskies, but he does tolerate them. He does not really like very big dogs. He is good with small ones. He would probably do well with cats, he has no prey or play drive.
This happy go lucky senior is up for adoption with Ohio American Eskimo Rescue. He’ll be 12 this year. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application. He is fostered near Cincinnati, OH.

 

Kasper

kasper1 kasper2 kasper3

KASPER
Kasper is a Samoyed/Eskie mix and about 12 years old. “Big Guy” as he is affectional called, is great.

He loves to take his head and rub it into his foster Mom’s stomach or legs. He drives her crazy because he goes outside, walks back to the door comes in, stands at the door to go back out, she lets him out, he wants back in. It happens several times a day. So he’s housetrained for sure.

Kasper loves to stroll around the yard, enjoys sleeping on a huge dog bed, or lays in the foyer by the front door. You have to be careful if you place anything on the coffee table, he likes to drink out of your glass if it’s something cold. He ignores coffee.

Because Kasper is a Samoyed and Eskie mix, he weighs about 62 lbs. The foster Mom helped him lose 6 lbs already on a veggie and special food diet.  Kasper is on a urinary dog food to prevent any bladder stone issues and he is doing really well. The blood work shows us this health big boy has plenty of years to live.

He does not like other dogs in his face and will snap at them (younger and high energy dogs). We are working on that issue and is learning quickly that it is not acceptable.
Kasper is up for adoption with Ohio American Eskimo Rescue near Cincinnati. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application.

 

Katrina

KATRINA…our newest member to team Ohio American Eskimo Rescue.

She’s been with us over a month and has come a long way from the puppy mills of Ohio. Katrin is so sweet and loving.  Katrina is learning to play with the other dogs.

She has half her body up on the couch but she’s not sure about jumping up just yet. Katrina loves the kitchen and all the veggie treats.

Katrina is house trained, unless it rains, standard mill behavior, so we go out with an umbrella for her.  She has developed some separation issues due to loving her foster mom so much. She has discovered how easy it to tear apart the cheaper stuffed toys. She likes to run around the house squeaking a toy, especially the stuffed possum

Katrina does her own form of “Eskie zooms: Hates crates, is ok on a leash, not too sure about cats.  Katrina was probably exposed to kids since she lived on a Mennonite farm.

Katrina is up for adoption with Ohio American Eskimo Rescue near Cincinnati.

Kibo

kibo1 kibo2

KIBOKibo was born in March 2021 on an Amish puppy mill farm and adopted by a loving family but they 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.

Maya

maya1 maya2

MAYA – What a SWEETHEART!

She’s 10 years old and was born blind.  She gets around fairly good for being blind. Her foster Mom claps and she goes towards her voice and the clapping noise.

Maya will bark when she wants to go out, come in, and when it is dinnertime.

She’s getting a dental on February 21st. Her teeth are typical Eskie teeth, so she’ll lose a few.

Maya is  house trained, and “jump on the couch trained” to love on her human.

She loves a car ride, is fairly good on a leash. She is happy to sleep on a dog bed throughout the night.

(She was left behind in a home by the owner, but the family of the owner contacted several rescues to take her.)

Fostered near Cincinnati, OH

 

Micah

micah1 micah2 micah3

MICAHMicah joined O.A.E.R on Sunday, September 12, 2021. Micah is 6 years old and a standard female Eskie. 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.

Lexi

lexi-2 lexi1 lexi3

LEXILexi is a female mini born October 24, 2015. Lexi came to O.A.E.R. 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 now. Lexi 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.

Naga 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 a 12 year old male standard. He 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.

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.

Snowball

snowball1 snowball2 snowball3

SNOWBALL is 6-1/2 years old and a 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 October 2019. 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 7 pounds, 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 than 6 hours. She does better 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.

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.
