Dog breeds Group 5 - Section 4 FCI – European Spitz

Dog breeds Group 5

In the section 4 you will find dog breeds from the countries Germany and Italy.

Central European dogs were (and in part they still are) watchdogs or herding dogs and usually do not display distinctive hunting behavior. The Nordic Hunting Dogs, listed in section 2 of the group 5 FCI, are in contrast to these hunting dogs.

Today, the Spitz is available in many different sizes (of 18 to 55 shoulder height cm) and in many different colors (black, white, orange, cloud gray, brown, piebaldo, black and tan with many shades).

There is no close genetic relationship between European Spitz and asian, apart from the Spitz of Eurasia and Japan.

The FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale) recognize 337 races and each one is ‘property’ from a specific country, where it had its origin. All of them are included in 10 Groups under one registration number, a section number and a group number.
