There are precious dogs that you may not know much about, or even think that they are not even of race. Perhaps this has happened to you with the eurasier, a dog with a sublime appearance that we want you to know.
What you should know about the eurasier
Origin and history
The eurasier comes from Germany, and was the result of a cross breed carried out by Julius Wipfel. He was looking for a dog that would gather the best qualities and characteristics of two of his favorite breeds: the chow-chow and the wolf spitz. Towards the beginning of the 60s this crossing was carried out, which gave birth to a dog with amazing characteristics.
A decade later, it was recognized as a breed by European canine federations. This, in spite of the fact that Julius made the crossing omitting the characteristic genetic characteristics of the primitive Samoyed, of which there was much in the chow-chow.
However, the end of Julius was to 'create' a dog with good character, and this was something that the primitive Samoyed did not enjoy. But it was brought by the most modern Samoyed, so in the following crosses included dogs that had the blood of this.

Meanwhile, his denture is strong although it is well 'stored' and does not show it unless he wants it. Curiously, its language is bluish black, something characteristic of chow-chow and that makes clear that this animal descends from them.

However, this behavior has something positive, and is that He is an excellent watchdog. He just barks and is not aggressive, but will warn you of the presence of strangers near the home.
