The Book of the Breed
The Japanese Spitz
origins - characteristics - standards- breeding
The book has at last filled a real gap in monographs on rare dog
It is the first complete manual on the Japanese Spitz ever appeared
in Western countries.
The valuable and comprehensive text of the book is
accompanied by over 200 photographs, half of them in colour,
and by a number of excellent drawings which give the book a
particularly attractive layout.
In-depth comments on the standards try to clarify some technical
specifications still under debate.
A full chapter is dedicated to comparison with similar breeds
(American Eskimo, German Spitz, Volpino Italiano, etc.).
At the end of the book a useful appendix is also given, containing a
complete list (with genealogies) of the officially registered Japanese
Spitz specimens imported to Europe from Japan between 1967 and
The bibliography includes over 30 references.
This unique 236 page, hard cover, 15x23 cm book (a ZIELO
EDIZIONI publication) is a real "must read" for all spitz fanciers!
