About This Breed

In Germany, in the 1960’s a breed was evolved by crossing a Chow Chow and a Wolfspitz. This was first called “Wolf-Chow” and then, after crossing with a Samoyed, was re-named “Eurasier” (Eurasian).
They have an even temperament, very self assured and calm, watchful and alert without being noisy. They develop a very strong bond with their family. Can be reserved towards strangers without being aggressive. They need constant contact with their families and are very much a companion dog.
