Finnish Spitz Information
No, it’s not a fox, although it sure does look like one. The Finnish Spitz hails from Finland, as the name implies, and boasts a dense bright-red coat, curled up tail and expressive, cute face that might be mistaken for a fox at first glance.
The history of the Spitz can be traced back thousands of years, and today it is the national dog of Finland. For those who are lucky enough to have such a pup in their home, they’ll find the breed is lively, friendly and very active. This is a type of dog who needs a fenced in yard and lots of exercise! He does great with children and other pets and is a good-natured, faithful member of the household.
