I'm looking for a good dog that will be able to be a ESA I like the look of the Eskie and have read a bit a bout them. I'm just wondering if it right for me.

What do you mean by ESA? You must remember that Eskies are very hetic and energized. They love to run around, they bark...a lot! They are wary of strangers...at first, but will quickly warm up. Of course, my two don't follow that rule. Gypsy Road is completely nervous around other animals and humans and Jack runs up to them for pettings and loving...even though they both get plenty at home. They need plenty of exercise and you have to make sure that you don't feed them a lot because they tend to gain weight easily. I hope that this helps you some.
