General characteristics/temperament: The German Spitz refers to both a breed of dog and a type of dog. In some European countries, the German Spitz is considered one breed that consists of different varieties based on size and color. The AKC recognizes some of these varieties as separate breeds in the US, including the Keeshond and the Pomeranian. In addition, the American Eskimo Dog also originated from the German Spitz brought to America earlier, although other breeds were used in the formation of the breed, and it is recognized by the AKC as a separate breed from the German Spitz.
