In everything but size , the Japanese spitz resembles a Samoyed, from ehich it was probably derived in the early 20th century . it is a robust little dog with a well muscled form and the classic spitz-type face and curled tail . Japanese spitzes make reliable family companions and alert watchdog , amenable to training and living with other dogs . selective breeding has to some extent reduced the chances of persistent barking . the breed’s numbers in japan have declined from a peak in the 1950s , but they are increasingly popular in Europe and north America
