German Spitz Dog Breed Information

German SpitzThe German Spitz is a dog breed or group of dog breeds of the Spitz type.

Types

There are five different types of German Spitz:

  • Wolfspitz (Keeshond - considered a separate breed in many countries)
  • Grossspitz (Giant Spitz)
  • Mittelspitz (Medium/Standard Spitz)
  • Kleinspitz (Small Spitz)
  • Zwerspitz (Dwarf/Midget Spitz also known as Pomeranian - considered a separate breed in many countries)

Most kennel clubs recognise only the Klein and Mittel varieties of German Spitz and consider the Pomeranian (Zwerspitz) and Keeshond (Wolfspitz) as separate breeds. In many countries the Miniature (Klein) spitz is also confused with the Pomeranians (Zwers).

Appearance

German Spitz are similar in appearance but vary in color. The Giant Spitz can only be black, white, or brown but the Standard, Small and Dwarf can have various color combinations as well.. All German Spitz have a fox like head, double coat, highset triangular ears and a tail that curls up and rests on top of the body. Although the Small Spitz and the Pomeranian look alike they are not the same dog.

History

German Spitz are descendants of the ancient spitzes found in the Stone Age and they are the oldest breed of dog in Central Europe.
