The Eurasier is a calm, even-tempered dog that forms a very close bond with their family.

They are a medium-sized, balanced spitz style dog that comes in a variety of colours. They have a double coat with a thick undercoat and long outer hairs, although the hair is shorter on the head and front legs. Unusually, their tongue may be pink, blue-black or spotted.

The Eurasia is quite a recent breed having been developed in Germany, in the 1960s, to combine the best qualities of the Chow Chow and Wolfspitz and, later, the Samoyed with the intention breeding a companion dog.

They are dignified, affectionate, gentle, intelligent, easy to train and very people-oriented. They are watchful of strangers but never aggressive and are vigilant but friendly to other dogs.

They need a good amount of exercise and the thick coat needs regular brushing. There are no known health problems.
