We'd say that our Toby Fu is full throttle Eskie! This picture perfect, beautiful boy will thrill seasoned Eskie lovers, who appreciate the personality and spirit of this high energy breed. Two year years old, Toby Fu came to us from a busy family, who clearly bit off more than they could chew with this Divalicious little Scamp. Their hectic schedule left little time for the rigors of raising a puppy. After we had Toby Fu in our home, we realized that his former family missed all of the important Social Development periods, and he was allowed to run amok. We were pleased to see that once Toby Fu received a good amount of exercise and basic obedience training, that his behavior improved significantly. We'd say that Toby Fu is a 'social climber' in that he needs consistent leadership and discipline from all family members, otherwise he might wedge himself between Hubby and Wife, or siblings, and register some rather unwanted opinions. We think that a personality and energy match is the key to Toby Fu's happily ever after. This former spoiled brat, needs a firm Alpha Pack Leader, who is willing to establish house rules, and provide the necessary discipline and exercise that Toby Fu needs to maintain his good behavior. He has been through basic obedience training, and knows all his commands. He enjoys his training workouts, and performs beautifully for praise or treats. A 20 minute daily obedience sequence goes a long way in cementing a bond, and provides the mental challenge that will give Toby Fu the structure he needs. Toby Fu is a purebred American Eskimo Dog, with the breed standard, thick double coat. He needs regular brushing, and probably a couple of professional groomings each year to look his best. Added Omega Fatty Acids to a high quality grainfree diet keeps Toby Fu's coat soft and manageable. Toby Fu has visited our Groomer a couple of times and has behaved himself pretty well. He is a large Eskie, and at 40 pounds, considered a Standard. Toby has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during Toby's transition to a new home. He is in excellent health, and is at an ideal lean body weight of 40 pounds. He is neutered, and has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, has been on monthly Heartworm and Flea/Tick prevention.
