The GERMAN SPITZ!

If you like dog breeds including the Pomeranian, Japanese Spitz, Keeshond and Samoyed dog breeds, then keep reading. The German Spitz breed descends directly from the Nordic herding dogs like the Samoyed, which were taken to Germany and Holland by the Vikings during the Middle Ages.

Breed History:
The German (Deutscher) Spitz breed is one breed differentiated only by varieties of sizes, ranging from the Zweg Spitz (otherwise known as the Pomeranian) to the Wolfspitz (otherwise known as the Keeshond). In addition, (interesting side history): the Japanese Spitz height: (30-37cm) (i.e. similar to that of German Spitz) are believed to be descendants from selective breeding of only the white German Spitz.

The German Spitz Varieties: Five separate sizes of the German Spitz, differentiated by height were recognized as separate pure breeds by the The Fédération Cynologique Internationale is the World Canine Organisation (FCI). These sizes are:
1. German Zweg (Toy) Spitz / Pomeranian, 18-24cm height
2. German Klein (Miniature) Spitz, 23-29cm height
3. German Mittel (Medium) Spitz, 30-38cm height
4. German Giant Spitz, 43-46cm height
