Laika was born in Scharnstein, Austria in October of 1999. She was bred by Prof. Dr. Kurt Kotrschal, President of the Eurasier Club Austria (ECA).. We picked Laika up in Austria when she was 11 weeks old and she flew with us on a non-stop flight from Munich to Philadelphia.
Laika was a medium size female, 52 cm shoulder height, full of substance, with a harmonic built. She had a full coat and her color was “falben”. As her name already indicated, Laika was the “Alpha” of our dog pack. She was very confident and displayed a lot of dignity. She was never fearful, slightly reserved with strangers at the beginning but open minded. She was an observant guard dog but nevertheless very calm. In her social behavior with other dogs she was definitely dominant.
Laika was very attached to our family. Communication seemed to be possible without words. She was a great girl !
Laika was hip and elbow certified, patella and eye checked. She was the proud mother of our A and B litters. Laika was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease in May of 2007 and passed away in July 2007. We miss her incredibly.......She was my “once in a life time dog”
Laika enjoys the sand on the coast of Nova Scotia in the summer of 2006.
