Abstract: A necessary condition for an isotopy class on a compact surface to admit a Smale diffeomorphism whose dynamics are a specified set of subshifts of finite type is that the Euler characteristic of the manifold be equal to a sum and difference of certain numbers obtained from the matrices representing the subshifts. In this paper it is shown that this condition is sufficient up to a finite power of the subshifts.
