Eurasier Dog Description
The acceptable coat colors for the Eurasier are black, tan black, grey, fawn, or red. The undercoat of this breed should be dense, and the outer coat should have a moderate length. The tail should be fluffy, and the fur on the hind legs should belong. While the fur on the necks of these dogs should be a bit longer than the rest of the body, a mane should not be present. The tongue of the Eurasier may be pink or a mixture of blue black.
These dogs were first bred in Germany during the 1960s by Julius Wipfel. The goal of developing this dog was to create a good combination from the Keeshond and Chow Chow. The Keeshond/Chow Chow hybrid was later bred with the Samoyed to give us the breed that we recognize today.
