Spitz Tedeschi

Spitz's are captivating dogs due to their beautiful coat, held up by abundant undercoat. Particularly striking is the strong collar around the neck, similar to a mane, and the bushy tail carried skillfully over the back. The fox's head with alert eyes and small pointed ears, inserted close to each other, give the Spitz its unique, distinctive bold appearance.

The German Spitz descend from the “Peat Dog” (Torfhund) “Canis Familiaris Palustris Rütimeyer” who lived in the peat bogs in the Stone Age and from the later Spitz of the Villages in Palafitte (Pfahlbau); they are the oldest dog breed in Central Europe. Numerous other breeds originated from them.

Behavior / Character
The German Spitz is always alert, lively and exceptionally devoted to its master. It learns quickly and is easy to tame. He distrusts strangers and his total lack of interest in hunting makes him the ideal dog for guarding the house and farm. He is neither shy nor aggressive. Its most important characteristics are robustness, longevity, and the ability to withstand any weather condition.

Coat: The German Spitz has a double coat: long, straight, raised top coat and a short, dense, cotton-wool-like undercoat. The head, ears, front of the limbs and feet are covered with short, often velvety hair. The rest of the body has a long, abundant coat. Not wavy, curled or roped, not split on the back. Neck and shoulders are covered with a thick mane. The rear of the forelegs are well feathered. The hind limbs have wide fringes from the rump to the hock. The tail is bushy
