The Eurasier breed, also called Eurasian dog, Eurasian Spitz, or wolf-chow, was bred in Germany in the mid-20th century. It was recognized by the International Federation of Cynologists and got its official name in 1973. The desire to combine opposite types of dogs inspired Professor Julius Whipfel to crossbreed the German shepherd dog and the wolf-chow. He dreamed of a kind and affectionate wolf that would be a wonderful pet. It became famous and widespread in Germany and other European countries.
The Eurasier is a sturdy, medium-sized dog with a well-proportioned build. The head is triangular in shape, almond-shaped eyes, nose, and lips always dark in color, ears triangular in shape. It is not a long, stocky torso, ring-shaped, very fluffy tail pressed to the body, muscular paws. The coat is thick, medium-length, with an undercoat. The monochromatic coloration includes all shades of red, black, reddish, and their lightened variants. Brown and white Eurasian Spitzes are considered culled.
