The Spitz Lines
The Japanese Spitz is a foxy-looking dog that is actually a larger cousin of the Pomeranian. They are also similar in appearance to Samoyeds, as they are very fluffy and all white, but smaller. What gives the Japanese spitz their fox-like look is their cute triangular ears and pointed snout.
The Japanese spitz is actually a fairly recent breed. It was created in the 1920s and 1930s by breeding white German Spitz dogs with other smaller white spitz breeds. This cute dog breed is one of the longest-living breeds and lives on average for between 10 and 16 years.
This breed is typically a great home companion. They love kids, get along well with other dogs, and have few genetic health problems. They love to be the center of attention and are eager learners since they love to please their owners.
