There are two types of German Spitz, the first type being the smaller and the second being the medium, the larger of the two. Aside from the size difference, these two dogs are exactly the same in appearance and temperament. These dogs are also known as Deutscher Spitz. They were originally bred as working dogs in their native Germany, but today they are very popular as pets and companions thanks to their charming appearance and affectionate, friendly nature. Although independent by nature, the German Spitz likes nothing more than being part of a family and enjoys being included in everything that goes on in a household.
