Spitz (dog)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A number of dog breeds are referred to as top , which are listed in the FCI system in group 5 in sections 4 and 5. A distinction is made between European tips (Section 4) and Asian tips (Section 5). Apart from the Eurasier and the Japanese Spitz, there is no closer genetic relationship between European and Asian spikes.

Central European leaders were (and in some cases still are) guard dogs or herding dogs and usually do not show any pronounced hunting behavior. The Nordic dogs that are listed in FCI Section 2 of Group 5 are, in contrast, hunting dogs . So you are Spitz in type, but not in behavior. Nevertheless, these dogs are also called Nordic Spitz and also belong to the FCI group of Spitz and primitive dogs.
