Description: In 1960, a breed was evolved by crossing a Chow Chow and a Wolfspitz [Keeshond]. This was first called a "Wolf-Chow" and then, after crossing with a Samoyed, was given its current name and recognized by the F.C.I. Thus far in the breed’s development, no hunting instinct is apparent.
These dogs are self-assured, calm and even-tempered with a high resistance to provocation. Eurasiers are watchful and alert without being noisy and develop very strongly links to their family/owner/handler. These dogs are reserved towards strangers without being aggressive. For the full development of these qualities, the Eurasier needs constant, close domestic contact with its family and understanding yet consistent training.
