Description

The Eskinu, also called an Imo Inu or Shiba-mos, is a cross between the American Eskimo and Shiba Inu breeds. They have a stout build, wedge-shaped head, and their legs, backs, hips, shoulders are muscular. Their faces have dark, almond-shaped eyes with a black, triangular nose. The Eskinu’s ears are erect and triangular with slightly curved outlines. Their coat can come in multiple colors such as black, black and tan, brown, gray, and white.

Personality

The Eskinu is a courageous, cheerful, independent, intelligent, and affectionate breed, but they can sometimes be fastidious. They also love to play and are highly energetic. They are okay with children and other family pets, but they might not always tolerate small animals.

Grooming Requirements

Eskinus do not need a whole lot of care. They shed slightly less than average, but it is still good to brush them once every two to three days to keep them clean.

Exercise/Energy Level

Due to their energetic nature, the Eskinu needs a fair amount of daily exercise and mental stimulation. Without it they would become restless, which might lead to destructive tendencies.

Additional Information

Because the Eskinu is independent-natured it might take a little more effort and patience on your part to train it, but because they are intelligent and meticulous they would learn well. It is best to train and socialize them from a young age in order to prevent possible behavioral problems as they get older.
