  • 1. Is the Finnish Spitz Hypoallergenic?
     

    Not at all. If you are allergic to dogs, chances are that you will be allergic to the Finnish Spitz as well.
    There are many people who love dogs and long for a pet, but suffer from allergies. Hypoallergenic dogs are great for allergy sufferers, because these dogs either do not shed or shed very little, making them less likely to cause a serious reaction in owners. It is important to note, however, that there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic dog – the saliva and skin of a dog can still trigger an allergic event in sensitive people.

  • 2. Do Finnish Spitzes shed?
     
    Yes, they shed quite a lot. Even more during the shedding seasons.
    When kept inside, every dog sheds all year long. In addition to that, Finnish Spitzes also blow their coat once or twice a year -- usually during spring, and sometimes again during fall.
    As  the outside temperature becomes warmer, and winter turns to spring, a dog’s skin and hair follicles respond to the longer days by shedding their thick winter undercoat in exchange for a lighter, cooler summer undercoat.
    As days grow shorter, and as summer turns to fall, a dog’s body likewise prepares itself for the cooler weather by growing a thick undercoat, and shedding its soft summer coat.
  • 1. What is the Waiting List?
     

    The Finnish Spitz is considered to be a rare breed outside of its country of origin. There is only a handful of breeders in North America and few litters are born each year.
    Inugami’s Waiting List ensures that you will received more information regarding our next litter when the time comes.  Once the mating has occurred, you’ll be contacted and be kept informed about the litter-to-come. After the puppies are born, we’ll reach out to you in order to confirm your interest in one of the newborn.
    The Waiting List doesn’t assure completely that you will be able to adopt one of our puppies. When the puppies are born, we ask people registered on the list to confirm their interest by giving a deposit for their futur dog. (First -come, first-served).
    In order to register to our waiting list, you will be asked few questions. This helps us to know you a little better and advise you on some important points regarding the breed, when needed.

  • 2. What is the Deposit for?

    The Deposit is non-transferable and non-refundable, except in the rare case when the puppy  dies prematurely in the first weeks of its lifespan.
