Origin of the breed:

Julius Wipfel, backed by an idea of Konrad Lorenz induced 1960 in Weinheim (Germany) a new breed: Wolf-Chow, which originated from pairing German Wolfsspitz and Chow-Chow. The resulting Wolf-Chow was again paired in 1972 with Samoyed out of which the present day EURASIER developed.

This breed was registered by the German Kennel Club (VDH) and recognized 1973 by the Federation Cynologique International (FCI) under Standard No. 291/06.01.1994/D.

The aim was to assemble the positive characteristics of the outgoing races: the stron physical constitution, high fertility, territoriality and low disposition for hunting of the Wolfsspitz, the calm nature, patience and distance to non-family members of the Chow-Chow, a healthy coat, alertness, substance and friendly nature of the Samoyed.



The EURASIER is a well-balanced dog, both emotionally and mentally. It is a dog with even disposition, keen intelligence and with an active and useful physique. This combination of brains and good temperament wrapped attractively in different shades of color has made the Eurasier the companion of today.

Like most of the Spitz family, the Eurasier is a hardy, cheerful dog with a "can do" attitude. It protects its owners without the aggressiveness that often make some breeds difficult to predict or manage. Eurasiers make a better house watchdog than house guard-dog. Their instinctive liking of humans restrains them from being aggressive to strangers but they still keep an initial safe distance and alertness. Like other Northern breeds, Eurasiers have a strong and natural attachment to their "belongings".

It is important to realize that the Eurasier cannot just be placed in the backyard and be fed once a day. This dog needs to share its owner's home and also needs human interaction. It is a family dog and is not to be chained or locked out for too long.

This dog does not bark or yapp constantly and shrill. It barks to draw attention to its discovery. With family contacts, dogs and humans alike, it feels at home in apartments, close neighborhoods as well as on farms and in open areas.

Eurasiers could do very well in obedience work as long as it is not repetitive. Some owners have achieved successes in agility tournaments, but it will rarely become a utility dog.
