Eurasier








I thought I would do a blog post on my dog.  She attracts so much attention.  People stop me all the time to ask what breed she is.  There have been times when people park their cars and get out just to ask about her.
I spent a year researching dog breeds before deciding on one.   The one that best suited our family was the Eurasier. The Eurasier Club of Canada states that the temperament is "self-assured, calm, even tempered with high resistance against any provocation.  Watchful and alert without being noisy.  Very strongly developed link to his family.  Reserved towards strangers without being aggressive.  No hunting instinct.  For the full development of these qualities, the Eurasier needs constant close domestic contact with his family and understanding, yet consistent training."

The breed was first developed in Germany in the late 1940's first mixing a Wolf-Spitz and Chow Chow, then the Samoyed.
 
Eurasiers are rarely seen in Canada , they are mostly found in Europe.  That is why there is so much curiosity when I walk down the street with her.
