Overview: The German Spitz breeds descend directly from the Nordic herding dogs, like the Samoyed, which were probably taken to Germany and Holland by the Vikings during the Middle ages. These dogs then spread throughout Europe and were crossed with other herding and shepherd breeds, thus making the foundation of the Spitz type.The Spitz were gradually bred smaller and smaller until the toy breed of Pomeranian emerged. The larger sized Spitz died out apart from the odd large Pomeranian puppy cropping up in a litter. The present day German Spitz has two sizes in the UK and breeding between sizes is forbidden. However Kleins will occasionally pop up in Mittel litters and vice versa because of the mixed ancestry. Until 1994 the breed was classified by the Kennel Club as a Rare Breed.
Breed Group: Northern
Weight (lbs): 18 - 22 lb
Height (in): 9 - 11 in
Colors: black, white, cream, brown, orange, sable, gold
Coat: He has a double coat consisting of a medium-length, straight outer coat and a short, thick undercoat.
Character: The German Spitz is a fairly energetic, playful breed with a slightly higher than average intelligence. They are very curious and will like to go on searches while on walks, as well as poking around areas that they are not familiar with. They are loyal to their owners, and this can cause them to become suspicious of strangers. Because of this they make excellent watchdogs, and do enjoy a good bark. This can get out of hand, but with good training this can be honed so that they bark when visitors come to the door and then keep quiet thereafter. They are very playful, and like to stand on their hind legs; a trick that they can learn to do on command. They, especially the Pomeranian, are a regular staple at dog shows such as Crufts, and they feel very at home on the show floor. They can be lively, especially when young, but they are also sensitive and require much human attention and petting!
Temperament: Inquisitive Happy Social Sensitive Great sense of humor Protective
Care: Grooming is not as heavy for the German spitz, despite it being a double coated breed, as you might think. Most spitz can be kept neat and tidy by giving the dog a brush twice a week and a thorough, deep groom once a week.
Training: Pack-leader’ training is essential with the German Spitz. If trained properly, though, they will make great companions.
Activity: The breed, especially the smaller versions, make for excellent apartment pets as they only need a relatively small amount of exercise. They do need daily exercise, and if you would like to go running with them then they do like that too. But they don’t require the amount of exercise, say, most gundog breeds require .
Country of Origin: Germany
Health Issue: The Standard German Spitz suffers from relatively few genetic health problems. Overall though the breed is very healthy.
Life Expectancy: 15-17 Yrs.
