Back to American Eskimo Rescue of Iowa

This page is dedicated to the loving memory of Sammie from Miami. 
From 10/09/91 to 07/11/03

Sammie was in our senior sanctuary program. It seemed since the day she arrived she just blended right into the Iowa Eskie Spa and Resort. Sammie never had an argument or a bad relationship with any of the other Eskies or humans. She preferred to sleep downstairs and would like to eat by herself. It almost seemed like she didn't want to take up too much space or be a bother, which she never was or would have been. Sammie from Miami quickly became my special early morning smiley face. Every morning at 1:30am when all the others were sleeping upstairs, she would follow me around and help me get ready for work; and always a goodbye kiss. This was her special job. During the day, she had a way of staying out of site when it was time for all the other Eskies to go outside, just so she could get some one on one loving. (smart girl that she was). Being part of a sanctuary that takes in seniors is usually a joyful and fulfilling job, except for when its time for them to leave. Even though I never forget that this is the last stop for them, it never hurts any less when reality sets in. We try to make the sanctuary life as fun and enjoyable as we can.  Sammie made my life more bearable in return. 
She had a malignant tumor in her tummy that infiltrated several of her other organs. After several tests, we took her in for surgery, but it couldn't be fixed. She went to sleep on the operating table.
 Sammie was active and playful. She lived her life to the fullest, right up to her last day and she will be remembered for her goodness, always.

Dear Sammie,
You taught me to enjoy the present moment no matter how early in the morning that it was, to appreciate the things that are here in front of me now and to recognize beauty in those things I never saw. If the world truly turns, I look forward to meeting you again.
Love will surround your memory always.
Perry

Once upon a time there were 4 co-workers, Someone, Anyone, Somebody And Nobody

 There was a job that needed to be done but Anyone thought that Someone would certainly get around to it and Somebody was sure that Anyone could see to it. And of course we all no who did itů Nobody.

In these hard and uncertain times the need for your continued support is imperative to help maintain these rescue efforts, and more so, the Sanctuary, were the Eskies need far more medical treatment, special foods and care. Lets not leave them to Nobody. Please help today.

How can you help?

Thank you in advance,
 The folks at American Eskimo Rescue and Sanctuary of Iowa.

Despite The American Eskimo Dogs resemblance to Inuit sled dogs, the American Eskimo dog, nicknamed the Eskie, is a type of spitz dog, Modern families of American Eskimo Dog s can be traced to the American Eskimo Dog of the late Stone Age (about 6000 years ago). American Eskimo dogs are intelligent, energetic dogs that typically have bright white coats.

American Eskimo Dogs belonging to a miniature variety of this breed weigh 10 to 20 lb and are 11 to 14 inch tall. American Eskimo Dogs of the toy-dog variety, which is even smaller than the miniature variety, has been developed, but the Toy American Eskimo Dog is not recognized as a distinct breed by the American Kennel Club.

American Eskimo dog s have wedge-shaped skulls with wide muzzles; oval, dark brown eyes; and triangular, erect ears that are rounded at the top. The American Eskimo dog has a thick double coats that are either pure white or cream colored. The American Eskimo dog s coats are thickest around the neck, where they form a mane like ruff, which is especially obvious on American Eskimo males. the tail is curved and is covered with long hair.

American Eskimo dog s have a good-natured temperament that makes them suitable for many living situations. Because of their high energy, however, American Eskimo Dogs become noisy or destructive if they are forced to be inactive.
