I've had my Eskimo for about 6 months and we live in San Antonio, Texas so I can only give your limited info (Age? the vet seems to think he's about two). The climate here varies...it's hot (above 80 degrees) from May to Oct, cold during Jan-Feb, and mild in between. He was a stray and had his full coat when we found him in July. He lives outside so I trimmed his hair to about 2 inches and made sure he had plenty of shade and water. He did very well. Now his coat has grown back and we've had a few freezes and he refuses to sleep in the doghouse. Nor does he like being indoors and appears quite comfortable in the cold. He took the blanket from his doghouse and has it in the middle of the yard. He sleeps on top of it! To summarize, so far he's fine in the heat, and comfortable in the cold.
