Little-Known Facts About the German Spitz- Akita:

  1.  The German Spitz is an ancient breed popular with farmers and peasants. It’s said Spitz used to find the highest land to sit on and diligently watch for 

        intruders. On low-lying farms, sometimes the highest piece of land was 

        the muck heap! So, these little dogs were given the nickname “mistbeller,”

        translating roughly as “dung-hill barkers.”

  2.  These brave little dogs were also used on boats by fishermen and  

        traders. The German Spitz would act as a watchdog and protect their

        owner’s goods.  

  3.  After centuries working on farms and boats,  the German Spitz was  

        catapulted into the upper classes of the United Kingdom when 

        George I became king in the 18th century.  Visitors from Germany

        brought German Spitz dogs with them. Later, Queen Charlotte and 

        Queen Victoria were both known to adore the breed.

  4.  The outbreak of World War I led to the breed almost dying out.

         In 1975, some German Spitzes were exported to Holland where the breed           was  revived. 

  5.  Known for their abilities as farm dogs and then circus performers, the 

       name American Eskimo Dog was given to this strand of white German               Spitz dogs during World War I.  Tensions between America and Germany

       led to a breeder in Ohio to change the breed name  to benefit the 

      popularity of the  little dogs. The American Eskimo Dog or  Akita  is now considered a separate breed by the AKC, but of course, they still retain 

  their Spitz characteristics!
