    Why does my American Eskimo not look like the ones I see on other websites?

    I got my Eskie....who was supposed to be a TOY....but is about 2-3 pounds away from falling on the cusp between a Mini and a Standard.  Firstly, My biggest concern is that he isn't fluffy like the Eskies I see like on google images, etc.  Now, granted he is ONLY 7 mos old.  So maybe they go through an ugly stage.  Please visit my Hub let me know what you think.  There is an Am. Eskie Hub out there with a nice pic of an Eskie and he does NOT look like that.

    As far as I know they get more furry as they get older, so time will tell.

    With the size however, I'll guess that you probably got him from a less than reputable breeder, so he's unlikely to be completely purebred.

    I don't think that's a major problem (Neither of my Labradors are 100% purebred either). Just enjoy him as he is and keep in mind that his behavior might not be typical of the breed and you'll do fine.
