Suomen Eurasier Kerho ry – Finnish Eurasier Club was founded in 1991. The goal of the club is to promote eurasier breeding in Finland and spread knowledge on proper dog keeping and care. The club has about 200 members. The first Eurasiers came from Germany and France to Finland in 1989. Among the first dogs there were Alf vom Dreiländereck, Askim v d Ortenau, Diva von Geestequelle, Cherry zur Rönneburg and Espiegle du Chateau de Gorki. At the end of 2012 there were 60 imported dogs altogether, not only from Germany and France, but also from Austria, Belgium, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, Luxemburg, Sweden and Canada. Also Finnish puppies have been exported to various countries.
From the beginning until today, 1132 Eurasiers have been registered in the Finnish Kennel Club. The popularity of the breed hasn't grown extensively but it has been even during the years. There are not many breeders, so it's possible that one has to wait for a puppy for some time. About 20-60 puppies are registered yearly, sometimes even under 20.
In Finland, all dogs used for breeding have to be examined, meaning official hip and eye examination. The average hipscores for Finnish Eurasiers are as follows:
On average 41% of the Eurasier population has been examined.
A-hips 46 %
B-hips 17 %
C-hips 24 %
D-hips 12 %
E-hips 1 %
Finnish hipscoring: A & B = healthy, C = mild hip dysplasia, D = moderate hip dysplasia,
E = severe hip dysplasia
Hereditary eye illnesses, except distichiasis (extra eyelashes), are very uncommon. Many of the examined dogs have also had patella and elbow examination, the results are usually excellent. There are some diagnosed inner organ diseases (for example under activity of thyroid gland or pancreas), eczema and allergy cases.
