German Spitz 

TRANSLATION: C.Seidler / Version originale: (DE).


ORIGIN: Germany.





UTILIZATION: Watch and Companion Dog.


FCI-CLASSIFICATION:     Group  5   Spitz and primitive types.

Section 4   European Spitz. Without working trial.


BRIEF  HISTORICAL  SUMMARY:      German  Spitz  are descendants  of  the  stone  age  « Peat  Dogs »  (Torfhund)  « Canis familiaris  palustris  Rüthimeyer »  and  the  later  Lake  Dweller’s (Pfahlbau) Spitz; they are the oldest breed of dog in Central Europe. Numerous other breeds have been produced from them.   In non- German speaking countries Wolfsspitz are known as Keeshonds and Toy Spitz as Pomeranians.


GENERAL  APPEARANCE:  Spitz  breeds  are  captivating  on account of their beautiful coats, made to stand off by plentiful undercoat.  Particularly impressive is the strong, mane-like collar round the neck (ruff) and the bushy tail carried boldly over the back. The foxy head with alert eyes and the small pointed, closely set ears give the Spitz his unique characteristic, cheeky appearance.


IMPORTANT PROPORTIONS: The ratio of height at withers to body length is 1 : 1.


BEHAVIOUR AND  CHARACTER: The German Spitz is always attentive, lively and exceptionally devoted to his owner.  He is very teachable and easy to train.  His distrust to strangers and lack of hunting instinct make him the ideal watchdog for home and farm.


He  is  neither  timid  nor  aggressive.  Indifference  to  weather, robustness and longevity are his most outstanding attributes.




CRANIAL REGION: The Spitz’s medium size head, seen from above, appears broadest at the back and tapers in wedgeshape to the tip of the nose.

Stop: Moderate to marked, never abrupt.



Nose: The nose is round, small and pure black, dark brown in brown


Muzzle:  The  muzzle  is  not  overlong  and  stands  in  pleasing proportion to the skull.   (In Wolfspitz/Keeshond, Giant Spitz and

Medium-size Spitz the ratio length of the muzzle to length of the

skull is approximately 2:3, in Miniature Spitz and Toy Spitz approximately 2:4.).

Lips: The lips are not exaggerated, close fitting to the jaws and do

not form any folds to the corner of the mouth.  They are completely black in all colours, brown in brown Spitz.

Jaws/Teeth: The jaws are normally developed and show a complete

scissor bite with 42 teeth, corresponding to the teeth formula of the dog, i.e. the upper teeth closely overlapping the lower teeth and set square to the jaws. In Miniature-and Toy (Pomeranian) Spitz the lack of a few premolars is tolerated. Pincer-bite is permissible in all varieties of the German Spitz.

Cheeks: The cheeks are gently rounded, not protruding.

Eyes: The eyes are of medium size, longish shape, slightly slanting and dark.  The eyelids are black in all shades of colour, dark brown

in brown Spitz.

Ears: The small ears are set high and relatively close to each other, triangular and pointed; they are always carried upright, stiff at the tips.



NECK: The medium length neck is set broadly into the shoulders, slightly arched without throatiness and covered by a thick, profuse coat forming a large ruff.



Topline: The topline starts at the tips of the erectly carried prick-ears and merges in a gentle curve with the short, straight back.   The bushy, sweeping tail, which partially covers the back, rounds off the silhouette.

Withers / Back: The high withers drop imperceptibly into the shortest possible, straight, firm back.

Loin: Short-coupled, broad and strong.

Croup: The croup is broad and short, not falling away.

Chest: The deep chest is well sprung, the forechest well developed. Underline and belly: The brisket reaches as far back as possible; the belly has only a slight tuck up.


TAIL: The tail is set on high and of medium length.  It reaches upwards and rolls forward over the back, straight from the root.  It lies firmly over the back and is covered with very bushy hair.  A double curl at tip of tail is tolerated.





General appearance: Straight, rather broad front.

Shoulder:  The  shoulder-blade  is  long  and  well  laid  back.  The shoulder is well muscled and firmly connected to the brisket.

Upperarm: The upper arm, which is approximately the same length

as the shoulder-blade, forms an angle of 90 degrees to the shoulder- blade.

Elbow: The elbow joint is strong, close fitting to the brisket and turns

neither in nor out.

Forearm: The forearm is of medium length in relation to the body, sturdy  and  completely  straight.  The  back  of  the  forearm is  well


Metacarpus (Pastern):   The  strong,  medium  length  front  pastern stands at an angle of 20 degrees from the vertical.

Frontfeet: The frontfeet are as small as possible, round and closed, so

called cat feet, with well arched toes.

Toe-nails and pads are black in all shades of colour, but dark brown in brown dogs.



General appearance: The hindquarters are very muscular and abundantly feathered to the hocks.  The hind legs stand straight and parallel.

Upper and lower thigh: Upper and lower thigh are of about equal length.

Stifle (knee): The stifle joint is strong with only moderate angulation and is turned neither in nor out in movement.

Hock / hock joint: The hock is of medium length, very strong and vertical to the ground.

Hind  feet: The hind feet are as small as possible, tightly closed with

well arched toes, so called cat feet.  The pads are coarse.  The colour of nails and pads is as dark as possible.


GAIT/MOVEMENT: The German Spitz moves straight ahead with good drive, fluid and springy.


SKIN: The skin covers the body tightly without any wrinkles.




Hair: The German Spitz has a double coat : Long, straight, stand off top coat and short, thick, cotton-wool-like undercoat.   Head, ears, front side of front and hind legs and the feet are covered by short, thick (velvety) hair.  The rest of the body has a long rich coat.  Not wavy, curly or corded, not parted on the back.  Neck and shoulders are covered by a thick mane.  The backside of the front legs is well feathered, the hind legs have ample feathering from croup to hocks. The tail is bushy.
