The American Eskimo Dog is a lively and alert breed of dog with an all-white or bisque-colored coat, expressive black eyes, and a sharply curved, raised tail that curls over the body, having nothing to do with the Inuit. Instead, it was bred from the German Spitz in the 19th century by immigrants settling in the Midwest. Although originally a farm dog, the breed has become a popular activity in circuses and touring shows. After the US entered World War I, the call became modified to American Eskimo because of sturdy anti-German sentiment withinside the country.
