The presumed ancestor of the Japanese Spitz is the Samojede. One of the proofs, besides his appearance, is the fact that he would be calmer than his German parents, an element which could indicate the descent of the arctic spitz. The breed having taken off in the middle of the 20th century in Japan, it is now more widespread in Europe and the United States than in its country of origin.
