German Spitz Dog Breed

German Spitz Dogs
German Spitz

The Germanic countries developed the German Spitz (this name was officially changed to Keeshond in 1925) as a companion and utility dog. The spitz-type dogs are considered to be among the oldest of canines known to man. Color and size is what actually divides the large group of German Spitz dogs.

The German Spitz's popularity in America and Great Britain, for the most part, comes from the favoritism shown to the Pomeranian, Keeshond, and American Eskimo. These dogs all come from German Spitz stock. The German Spitzen is a happy and up-beat dog.
