German Spitz Mittel – Pedigree

Beautiful Pedigree German Spitz Mittel puppies ready to find their perfect forever homes. I am a Dogs Victoria Member and all pups are registered with Dogs Victoria. Please feel free to contact Dogs Victoria to verify my membership number. This will be my last planned litter and is my third generation from my girl Mighty. With the sires owner having now picked her pups, the rest of this beautiful litter is now ready to find loving forever homes. German Spitz are a very intelligent and loving breed. They are double coated and apart from a weekly brush and a monthly bath their coat does not require major maintenance. Double coats should never be cut and once or twice a year they will drop their undercoat which usually requires extra brushing or combing at that time. I obtained my first German Spitz about 22 years ago so I am happy to answer any questions you have about this beautiful breed. I currently have available: 1 Gold male 2 Cream Males 1 Cream Female (currently on hold) All pups have been bought up lovingly in my home and have been socialised with family friends, my other girls and our cat. They have been health checked by a vet, have had first vaccinations, been microchipped and have been registered with Dogs Victoria. Each pup will come with a puppy pack and lifetime support from me. If you would like to know more or are interested in obtaining one of my beautiful pups, please feel free to contact me.

The Ultimate German Spitz Guide

About German Spitz

Grooming

Grooming

The German Spitz is known to have a dense, fluffy coat, meaning they’re high maintenance with regards to grooming. Their coat needs frequent brushing to prevent mats and tangles from forming.

Unlike other breeds, this German Spitz needs to be brushed the ‘wrong’ way. In other words, brush in the opposite direction to that of other breeds. Pay close attention to elbows and ears, as these are the places where knots are known to form easily

Origins

The German Spitz is an ancient breed and one of the oldest to have come from central Europe. The World Canine Organisation considers this breed to be in the same category as the Keeshond (Wolfspitz) and the Toy Spitz (Pomeranian).

As a result, the German Spitz’s background is intertwined with these two breeds.

First mention of the German Spitz dates back to the Era of Germany’s Count Eberhard Zu Sayn. In 1450, he stated that the German Spitz was the defender of fields and homes.

The region of Pomerania was the home to most dogs belonging to this breed. This is why they’re collectively known as Pomeranians. This particular region is located on the southern shore of the Baltic sea right between present-day Poland and Germany.

The German Spitz was originally kept as a peasant dog. With time, their popularity grew among the upper class and royalty in England.

Key Characteristics Of German Spitzs

Are German Spitzs Family-Friendly?

Yes, the German Spitz is obedient and people-oriented. They also enjoy pleasing their owners.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

German Spitzs may suffer from:

Multifocal retinal dysplasia

An inherited eye disorder wherein the retina develops folds or detachments that can impair vision.

Persistent pupillary membranes

Progressive retinal atrophy

Nature / Temperament

Intelligent, Alert, Fun-loving, Lively, Loyal

Suitable Environment

Because German Spitzes are so small, they are easily adaptable and can be as comfortable in an apartment as they would be in a house with a yard.

Other Considerations

The German Spitz is a high maintenance breed. They shed heavily two times each year, and their double coat needs to be brushed often.

How can I take good care of my German Spitz?

Nutrition

German Spitz puppies should always be fed high-quality dog food. Small- or toy-breed dog food is the best choice, depending on the size of the German Spitz puppy that you get. Clean water should be made available at all times.

Most German Spitzes may be prone to weight gain when overfed. You opt to consult with your vet about your dog’s diet and nutrition.

Grooming

The German Spitz is a high maintenance breed. They shed heavily two times each year, and their double coat needs to be brushed often.

Exercise

The German Spitz is small in stature but extremely energetic and intelligent. They may ask for more exercise than other small breeds, roughly 30 minutes to an hour each day.

Like all other dogs, they can benefit from constant mental stimulation.

The German Spitz loves to run around the backyard as much as possible to let loose some steam.

Due to their high prey drive, their outdoor space should be fenced in so they don’t run off after smaller animals.

Training

The German Spitz is quite intelligent, but can also be wilful. Training has to begin early. The breed responds very well to positive reinforcement if you can provide interesting and varied rewards.

Some German Spitzes excel in a variety of canine sports, including agility and obedience competitions.

As long as they’re handled properly, the breed can be trained very easily.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked German Spitz Questions

No. This breed is not hypoallergenic. They tend to produce dander and shed fur heavily during the shedding season.

Yes, the German Spitz is a wonderful family pet if their owner is able to provide for their needs. If a German Spitz is well-trained and socialised, they will be gentle and friendly with children.

However, younger children may not be the best playmates of a German Spitz puppy, as the puppies are small and fragile. 

If you are looking for a German Spitz for sale, we recommend that you only adopt from responsible breeders.

The breed is rare and not many breeders have the expertise necessary to produce healthy and well-tempered German Spitzes.

The average German Spitz price in Australia will be between AUD $1500 and $3500.
