The Indian Spitz is a spitz-type dog breed belonging to the utility group. The Indian Spitz is a domestic dog and friendly pet. There are varying standards around the world as to the ideal size of the breed, but they are always larger than their smaller cousins, the Pomeranian.The Indian Spitz was one of the most popular dogs in India in the 1980s and the 1990s when India's import rules made it very difficult to import dogs of other breeds.The Indian Spitz is often called "Indian Pomeranian", though the two breeds are very different. The confusion arises from the fact that both breeds belong to the Spitz family, along with the Pomeranian, Elk-Hound, German Spitz, Samoyed Dogs, Finnish Spitz, and Japanese Spitz, among others.
