6. American Eskimo.
This is another unique dog breed for the older adult. Typically reaching about 30 pounds in size, the American Eskimo breed are beautifully colored, with the right portions of cream and white fur so they can blend in the colder climates of snow. They are typically energetic and require a good amount of exercise and play, so make sure to take this dog breed on daily walks for best results. Even though the American Eskimo breed is medium-sized, they are great with kids and other small pets, making this overall a great fit for anyone who lives in an independent community or solely at home.
