The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes the German spitz as a foundation stock breed. However, there is no official breed for the German spitz in the United States. The Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) is a worldwide organization that recognizes breeds including the German spitz. The Pomeranian is the smallest size of the German Spitz under the FCI and is now recognized as a separate breed in the United States. The FCI classifies four other sizes of the German spitz. From smaller to largest, they are the Kleinspitz, Mittelspitz, Grossspitz, and Keeshond or Wolfspitz.
