  • Origin story

    A very young breed, not yet recognized by the FCI. The year of its inception is considered to be 1987. Marita and Heinz Schorris, bobtail breeders from Germany, decided to respond to the challenges of the times and create the perfect companion dog, especially for living in an apartment next to a person. It was required that the new dog be in good health, be beautiful in appearance, bark little, show no aggression towards people or pets, and be easy to train.

    Initially, Bobtail, Chow Chow and Eurasian were selected for breeding. In addition, Pekingese participated in breeding, as well as Spitz Japanese and German.

    There are two types of elo: big and small. Breeding of a miniature variety of this breed has now begun. In the future, it is planned to develop a short-haired variety.


    Cute shaggy dog, proportionately folded, elongated format, with small protruding triangular ears and a good-natured muzzle. The build is quite strong, the tail is of medium length, fluffy.

    Color varied, preferably white with spots and specks. Elo can be both wire-haired and soft long-haired. Now breeders are also breeding smooth-haired elo.


    Calm, friendly, somewhat phlegmatic dog with a seasoned “Nordic” character. Almost does not bark, does not chase cats and does not hunt the owner’s parrots. Calmly tolerates bathing and other manipulations. I am happy to mess with children. Patiently sits alone, while the owner is at work, and then joyfully meets him at the door, wagging his tail. Absolutely nonaggressive, but he will learn to guard the apartment perfectly; although he will never attack the first, if necessary, he will be able to protect himself and the owner.


    The dog is fluffy, comb the wool with a special brush should be at least twice a week. Then your pet will delight your eye. Claws, ears, eyes are processed as necessary. In dirty weather, it is advisable to walk the dog in a light overalls-removal to protect the wool and not bathe the dog too often.


    He feels great in both a country house and in a city apartment. But walking with a dog needs to at least twice a day and at least half an hour at a time. If she stays at home alone for a long time, care should be taken to ensure that the pet has enough toys.


    In our country, elo is unlikely to be bought. You can contact breeders in Germany and choose your puppy in advance via the Internet.

    The cost of a puppy is directly dependent on the title of the parents and the exterior of the pet itself.
