Finnish Spitz

This flame-colored hunter from the land of 60,000 lakes packs plenty of dog into a small, well-balanced frame. A large male might stand 20 inches at the shoulder; a petite female a little over 15 inches. Finkies are easily recognized by their dense coat of glorious golden-red, a foxy face projecting a lively expression, and a curving plumed tail. In silhouette, Finkies present a squarely symmetrical picture, and they move with a bold and brisk gait that suggests their innate fearlessness.

Breed Profile

The Finnish Spitz is active, friendly, and eager.  They are faithful and brave, but slightly cautious.  Shyness and any tendency toward unprovoked aggression is to be penalized in the show ring.
