About Us


The lucky owner of Thunderpas American Eskimos is Patrea Pabst. Patrea practices patent law as a partner in her own law firm in Atlanta, Georgia. She makes her home at her farm in North Georgia. I purchased my first eskie in the spring of 1976, Laika, out of Jo-Em breeding.

My father had an American Eskimo when he was a child in the 1920s and always bragged how smart and beautiful they were. Laika had a short show career, and produced only one litter sired by CH Smith's Artic Snow - my beloved "Woof" who won a standing ovation when he FINALLY completed his U-CDX. I acquired a rescue eskie who became GR CH U-CD Johnny Reb Edelweiss, earning a best male at our first UKC show in 1977, a national specialty with 73 entries - and I was hooked! We plunged into showing in conformation, obedience, costume contests, entertained at nursing homes and played at agility and tracking.

My "kennel name" of "Thunderpas" came into being one day as I listened to my group race on pounding paws down the hallway. Thirty-three years and more than nine generations later, I am still hooked. They share our bed, our walks, our kitchen, our tears, our joy. They have continued to win in conformation in AKC, UKC and international competition, although I have less time for obedience and agility and therapy with a farm (with Arabian horses and Piedmontese cows) as well as a family and a very busy law practice. There are some "firsts" I am proud of - Misty was the most titled female at the time of her death, having earned her AKC CDX at the grand age of 12 years. Johnny was the first OFA and CERF American Eskimo. National GR CH U-CDX Thunderpas Mighty Max was the first obedience titled national grand champion. Rosemary Stevens' Gaea was the first female AKC Champion. Meeko and Meggie won 3 BIS and 1 BISS brace wins undefeated. FOUR of my girls, Misty, Meeko, Isis, and Galadrial have all qualified for ROM. I have had the pleasure of watching my puppy people outshine me with numerous group wins and placements with puppies I bred - congratulations to them all! Many of my puppies have helped establish others in the breed. Many more have been beloved family members. I look forward to another FORTY years of life with my American Eskimos!

We do not breed often, and each litter is carefully planned.

We offer a health guarantee, and a purchase contract is required. If you would like to see some of our puppies, or are interested in buying a Thunderpas puppy, please see our Puppy Page.
