General Health


One of the purposes of hybrid breeding is to try to eliminate health concerns. However health issues from parent breeds can be passed down to the designer dogs. Attention should be paid to the possibility of eye diseases, dysplasia, deafness, and Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease.

Ideal Environment


The Boskimo is a lively pet with an abundance of energy. Still he loves to climb on his owners lap and snuggle. Both parent breeds suffer separation anxiety so this hybrid is best in a home where they are not left alone constantly. Easily entertained with toys and regular exercise to burn off excess energy, he will make a great family companion.
