History

The Eurasier, also known as the Eurasian, is a Spitz-type dog that was developed in mid-1900 in Germany as a sled dog. It traces its roots to the Chow Chow, the Keeshond and the Samoyed. It was formally recognised by the German Kennel Club in the 1960s.

Temperament The Eurasier is a good family dog, especially with children, however, he is reserved with strangers. He is an alert dog that is a good learner, is generally quiet, and always eager to please.

Upkeep This is a breed that can have its exercise needs met with moderate exercise. A good walk on leash, combined with a vigorous game, can satisfy its needs. It can live outside in temperate or cool climates, but it is such a sociable dog that it prefers to share its life with its family. The double coat needs brushing once or twice weekly, and more when shedding.
