Keen sense of fun and a willingness to get involved in family activities make the Japanese Spitz a great choice for busy families. They will require a firm process of socialization and ongoing encouragement to engage with those outside the family but their loyalty and companionship are unquestionable.
Dogs should measure 34-37cms, bitches are 30-34cms.
A healthy breed with little wrong with the bloodlines. There are reports of an above average percentage suffering from patellar luxation, a knee complaint, but careful management of exercise especially during youth can help control this.
They are prone to runny eyes and with a pure white coat tear-staining is likely to occur so regular wiping of the area around the eyes will help prevent this from becoming unsightly.
Remember! All breed profiles are general and every dog is an individual.
