Built stocky, carrying a wedge shaped head that directly descends into a scissor bite. Two perfectly round eyes typically brown or black with two thick, triangular ears that stand tall on top of their head. This breed has a medium length tail that has a lot of fluffy hair on it, and should curl upwards, resting on their back at all times

Special Notes

Please do not add an Eurasian Dog to your family without fully educating yourself of the breed and making sure you are able to make a life long commitment to your new addition. A properly installed fence is highly recommended to allow your dog to roam freely and safely outside. Do not add this breed to your home unless you're able to provide life long physical and financial care. All dogs originate from wolves (Canis Lupus). Each breed of dog was originally created by mixing different breeds together in an effort to bring forth certain characteristics. Once a breeder has created acceptable “breed characteristics” within their bloodline and these “breed characteristics” have shown to be reliably reproduced in the offspring for three (3) generations, the bloodline may be upgraded from the category of “foundation stock” to “pure-bred”. The same “pure-bred” breed standards vary from different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders. Dog DNA testing companies can have accurate results for a specific bloodline of a small colony of dogs. However, there are tens of thousands of different bloodlines in the world which have not yet been tested for marker baseline results by Dog DNA testing companies as of 2017. For this reason Dog DNA testing companies do not guarantee the 100% accuracy of their breed lineage results and will also show different marker results for the same pure-bred breed in different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders.
