Jaace's Animal Companions

The Native American Indian Dog (NAID) a rare and unique breed whose heritage and characteristics have been preserved even before Europeans settled North America. Naids are rapidly growing in popularity due to their hypoallergenic properties, a coat that sheds once a year, tremendous intelligence, and long life span. This is a wonderfully healthy breed.

Having retained the looks, and versatility of their ancestors, the NAID could probably claim the title Oldest Breed of Dog in America. They were domesticated and widely used before horses were introduced to this continent. Not only are they favorite pets for families and hunters alike, but their popularity extends well beyond to such things as search and rescue teams, herding livestock, dog sled races, pulling contests, therapy dogs, and companions at child care centers and nursing homes. This highly desirable breed is exceptionally intelligent and can learn almost anything if someone is willing to take the time to train them. They like to have jobs to do, are especially good with children, do well with other household pets, livestock, and usually crave the company of other dogs.

The Native Americans used their dogs for protection, food, hunting, and for pulling travois' packed with possessions. These special tribal members would accompany the women and children while they picked roots, berries, herbs, other food, and also helped to protect the camp, elderly and young. They have an exceptional sense of smell and were used extensively for hunting. To the Native Americans, their dogs were more than mere pets; they were an important part of the family and vital to the survival of the tribe. As a breed, the NAID was almost extinct in the 1800s; the actual title, Native American Indian Dog, is a registered trademark with the US government and is a re-creation of the original dogs belonging to the Native Americans.
JAACE'S Animal Companions takes great care to socialize their litters. The puppies have considerable contact with children, adults, other dogs, and are often hand-fed. JAACE'S Lowaci and Nokosi are much like the dogs of the Hare Indians of Northwestern Canada who were described as longhaired with patches of grey, brown, or black over a white base hair coat. They had webbed feet enabling them to pull large, heavy loads. Their dogs were raised for work, food, and religious ceremonies.

The "Spirit Dog" look was singled out and selectively bred by the Native Americans. The hair was saved and woven into yarn to make weatherproof blankets and clothing for the tribe. The dogs belonged to the whole village and were an integral part of their everyday lives. JAACE'S Wiyaka enjoys being with family friends, and having visitors. She loves to be inside when we are. She likes to sleep on the floor by our beds. Her playfulness, friendliness, and easygoing personality make her a favorite among adults, and children alike.

With a family that suffers from asthma and allergies, this breed has provided us with wonderful pets that we can enjoy. They do not have a typical doggy smell, they shed only once year, and have natural lanolin on their hair so they do not need to be bathed as often as some other breeds. Our dogs love being in the house when we are playing and giving them attention. Otherwise they prefer to be outside. Being outdoors is a great pleasure for them regardless of temperature. They like to be outside when it is cold as well as when it is warm as long as they have ample water and shade. Our dogs bark very little. They're winners with our family, friends, and neighbors. It is truly a pleasure to spend time with this rare and wonderful breed. Please feel free to visit our website, or contact us if you desire more information about this awesome breed, or our available pups.
