Japanese Spitz - temperament of the breed or the previous owner?

I looked after this dog for a few months whilst his owners were away. He was a gorgeous looking dog (like a polar bear) and was very obedient. However, he was very needy - he absolutely hated being by himself. Even if I was having a shower he wanted to be in the room.. When we would go out he would bark and bark until we came back (according to the neighbours).

I'm not sure if this is the temperament of the breed or the way the previous owners trained him, hard to tell. They definitely loved him, but perhaps too much.
