The Elo: A dog with character
The Elo belongs to a young dog breed, whose representatives are very popular family dogs. No wonder, because during breeding, special emphasis was placed on a great, friendly and balanced character.
A calm, well-balanced and confessed nature is very typical for the Elo. Affectionate and cuddly as he is, he is a big fan of cuddling hours and invites with his beautiful soft fur also to it.
The Elo: A good-natured family dog
This dog usually proves his family suitability with his love for children as well. He is very patient and his steady, settled character makes him just as reliable and pleasant a contemporary as his high irritability threshold. In addition, he is considered adaptable and easily trainable. He learns very quickly and usually has little to no hunting instinct, making him very easy to lead.
Character and suitability of the four-legged friend
While the Elo likes to be a part of everything, he is not too much of an athlete. He is neither very agile nor too temperamental and simply prefers to take it easy. Dog sports and cycling for hours in hot temperatures are usually not for him. But many of them show themselves as talented guide and rescue dogs.
Not only because the Elo belongs to the rather new dog breeds, but it is true: not every dog is the same and also among the Elos there are such and such animals. If you want to choose a dog, it is always a good idea to visit it a few times beforehand to see if it will fit well into your family. A species-appropriate attitude with everything that the dog’s heart desires is of course.
Short history of the young dog breed
The Elo was originally called “Eloschaboro” when Marita and Heinz Szobries founded the breed in 1987. In the name should be found the different crossed dog breeds: Eurasier, Bobtail and Chow-Chow. The goal was a family-friendly, versatile and robust dog. Later, Dalmatians and Samoyeds were added to the mix, and for the small Elo, Pekingese and Japanese Spitz were also crossed in. The founders of the breed hold the trademark rights to the name “Elo”, an abbreviation of the original name.
The Elo can vary in appearance because there are so many different breeds mixed into him. In any case, he comes in large or small, with the hair textures rough or smooth. All coat markings are allowed, with a white coat with gray, black, red or brown patches being the most common. However, the focus of breeding is always on the amiable character of the quadruped and its health. In fact, the Elo is not very susceptible to disease because the gene pool is so large in breeding and the breed is still so young, as well as there are no particular visual breeding goals.
