All About Eurasier

  Eurasier

Description of an Eurasier

The Eurasier is a breed of spitz and has the traditional curly tail and bright, alert looking head of this type of dog. The Eurasier has a long, fluffy coat that can be any shade of fawn, wolf-gray, black and tan or red. Liver, pure white or white patches are not allowed on this breed, however there may be cream colored hair on the belly and underside of the tail in the lighter colorations. The outer coat is rather long and coarse, but the inner coat is soft and wooly, giving volume to the coat. The head is almost fox-like in appearance and the ears are carried pricked up at all times. The hair on the muzzle and head is shorter than the hair on the body and may also be darker, adding to the fox like appearance. The legs are sturdy yet balanced for the body.

Temperament of an Eurasier

The Eurasier has a wonderful personality for a companion dog. They need early socialization and positive and consistent discipline but are easy to train and very intelligent. They are one of the breeds that tend to get bored and inattentive with repetitive commands and prefer a challenge every now and then. They are good with children and other dogs, and love to be with the family rather than away. The breed is prone to become depressed and despondent when left alone and is definitely not a kennel or outside breed. The Eurasier is a natural watchdog that will bark whenever strangers are near; yet don't tend to become problem barkers. They are rather aloof with people they don't know but are also not a timid or shy breed.

Grooming & Shedding of an Eurasier

The breed requires regular grooming and is an average shedder. They will tend to shed much more profusely in the spring and fall, and will need daily grooming at this time. The harsh outer coat protects the wooly undercoat and will rarely need bathing. Special attention must be paid to the hair around the collar, the leggings and the tail to prevent mats from forming in these areas.

History of the Eurasier

The Eurasier was bred in Germany, not being developed until the late 1960's which makes it a very young breed of dog. The breed was developed by crossing Keeshonds, Samoyeds and Chow-Chow breeds. The original breeders, Julius Wipfel and Charlotte Baldamus were trying to create a breed of dog that had a wonderful temperament yet also had all the appearance of the Wolfspitz, also known as the Keeshond. The breed is particularly popular in Europe.
