Eurasier

Temperament

Quick to learn and eager to please, the Eurasier tends to bond very strongly with its owner or family. Eurasiers are easily trainable and pass obedience training without problem. They bring excellent results in agility and track, some are even avalanche search dogs. But the dog will always keep its own personality. A person who looks for absolute obedience should not adopt an Eurasier.

A robust breed with sled-dog capabilities, the Eurasier needs daily outdoor exercise with its owner. Indoors, it tends to be calm and quiet.

Reserved of strangers, the Eurasier is a natural watchdog. Although quiet and friendly with its family, both human and canine, it can become fierce if it senses a threat.

Eurasier History

The Eurasier is a modern breed, developed about 50 years ago by Prof. Julius Wipfel in Germany. To create a large and distinctive Spitz type of dog with beautiful colours and a mellow character, he crossed Chow Chow males with large German Wolfspitz (Keeshond-type) females. Later, he crossed a female of these breedings with a male Samoyed. Good selection of stock since that time established the breed, now known as the Eurasier.

A Colourful Breed

This hybrid origin and the fact that Eurasiers come in a whole variety of colors, sometimes puzzles purebred dog fanciers. Colours range through red, fawn, wolf grey, sable and black. The medium-length coat is soft, straight, abundant and luxurious. Thanks to its Chow ancestry, Eurasiers may have a blue tongue.

However, it is the diversity which makes the Eurasier. It ensures that each individual puppy will develop into a unique personality in look and character.

Height and Weigh

This handsome and imposing dog may measure up to 60 cm and weigh up to 31.5 kg. Males can be between 23 - 32 kilos, at a shoulder height of 52 - 60 cm, while females stay slightly smaller at about 18 - 26 kilos and 48 - 56 cm.
