Another of the rare breeds, the Eurasier is a member of the Spitz family of dogs. Mr. Julius Wipfel of Germany, created the breed in the 1940's by crossing the Chow Chow, Wolfspitz (also known as the Keeshond), and later the Samoyed. He was trying to create a healthy, well-balanced family and companion dog of calm nature by combining the best qualities of each breed. 

His goal was a dog with the good physical constitution and low hunting instinct of the Wolfspitz, the calmness, patience and reserve with strangers of the Chow, and the friendly nature and alertness of the Samoyed. The resulting dog, the Eurasier, takes his name from the origins of these ancestors, Europe and Asia. 

Eurasiers stand up to 23 1/2 inches tall at the shoulder. They have a soft, thick, medium-length double coat in a variety of colours including red, black, grey, blond, or sable. Shedding is seasonal. Regular grooming is required. The Eurasier's coat provides enough protection for him to live outdoors. However, this dog prefers to live indoors with his family. Like all Spitz dogs, the Eurasier carries his tail curled up over his back.

The Eurasier is an even tempered dog, generally calm and peaceful. He can tolerate a high degree of provocation without becoming aggressive. A self-assured dog, he is an excellent family pet as he becomes very attached to his owners and is wonderful with children and other family pets.  He has even been called a "cat-charmer"!  Because of his strong bond with his family, he doesn't like to be separated from them.  This not the dog to be kept outside in a kennel.  

A good-natured, eager to please dog, he is an excellent candidate for obedience training, especially as he is a fast learner. Training with patience and sensitivity will ensure your Eurasier develops his wonderful temperament, and he will enjoy participating in activities such as Agility and Obedience.  As with all dogs, early socialization is important for the development of good manners.

Although not aggressive with strangers, he does make a good watch dog as he is alert and watchful and naturally reserved with newcomers. Usually calm and quiet indoors, the Eurasier can become quite fierce if he senses a threat to those he loves.  As with most working dogs, he is used to a fair degree of activity and needs daily exercise and walking.
