The history

The origins forgiveness in the night of the times. We find ourselves in the Russian Siberia, between the rivers Ob and Jenisej, near the trib of the Tokana, breeders of reindeers.
We will find again them to Altemberg, in house of Konrad Lorenz, the great etologo prize Nobel for the Medicine in 1973. Exactly 27 February 1973 the race obtains the official acknowledgment.

The ancestors dell ' Eurasier called "Laika di Nenets", and were the result of spontaneous crossings between the Chow-Chow of Siberian Mongolia and the Spitz (influence to you from lupoide blood). The beauty of the aspect, the morboso attachment quais to the own human family, the fierce character, the sturdy physicist, the immense dolcezza, has literally made to innamorare the Prof. Lorenz, that it wanted at all costs to recover this typical ancient race of the Euroasiatico Continent, from which drift the name puts into effect them of Eurasier.

With to Konrad Lorenz and the Mrs. margarethe (its moglie), the merit of this hard job of selection goes in egual measure to the great cinofilo German Julius Wipfel that to Weinheim beginnings the first selections, working for the fissit of the characters is genetics that behavioural. Wipfel taken advantage of the sponsorship and the collaboration of the Universit di Gottinga (for the genetics) and of the Max Plenck Insitute di Heidelberg (for the comportamentalle).

Still today such continuous job, with the same one seriet, rigorosit and scrupolosit to work of the active Eurasier Klub:tre in Germany and one in Austria. They supervise on the genetic lines, control that the dogs very are held and raise to you, regulate the connections. Every year of job and dedication they cannot and they do not have to go makes useless to you.
