Spitz Dogs can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. The Spitz was one of the first types of dogs to be domesticated. Spitzes closely resemble wolves. Spitz-type dogs are often used for guarding, sledding, hunting, and family companions. Most Spitzes make wonderful pets and do well with children. Spitzes include breeds such as the German Spitz, Keeshond, Akita, American Eskimo Dog, Alaskan Malamute, and Siberian Husky. Many Spitzes prefer cooler climates, like to have a job to do, and are best suited for homes with large yards.
