EMBOSS sees the identifier as a database named chr1 and an ID of 

But you can also tell EMBOSS the format is 'pearson' which is a FASTA 
format that preserves the complete ID. We added that for identifiers 
that include ':' or '|' characters.

So, if you run:

fuzznuc -sf pearson

it should preserve the full ID.
