    German Spitz |Germany|

    The German Spitz traces its ancestry to ancient Nordic herding dogs used by nomadic cultures living in the frigid Arctic. These dogs, like the Samoyed, made their way to Germany and Holland, possibly with the Vikings, and were crossed with local, native sheepherding breeds. The earliest record of the German Spitz dates to 1450. In Germany these dogs are recognized in five different sizes: Wolfspitz (also known as the Keeshond), Giant Spitz, Mittel, Klein, and Dwarf (also known as the Pomeranian).The German Spitz is a fairly new arrival to the United States, and is registered in two sizes: the Mittel and the Klein. Both are bright, lively, boldnatured dogs that can be noisy if left alone. They thrive on company and challenges, and require only moderate amounts of exercise, but need regular grooming.
