The Keeshond is a gorgeous looking dog with its fluffy coat, smallish head, button eyes and cute little ears. Their coats are silver-grey with black tinted ends, which makes them look something like a cross between a wolf and a fox!
They love attention and affection from their family and do well as a companion dog for large families. The more they can be part of a larger family environment, the happier they will be, so we don’t recommend this breed for a single person household.
Keeshonds are great with children of any age. When raised together from puppyhood, they will enjoy snuggling up and relaxing on the couch with the kids, and the kids will love the warm furry blanket that their Keeshond provides!
They are brave little dogs that make excellent watchdogs. They have lots of character and spunk and are very alert but have no tendency to be aggressive. They will bark when an intruder is near the house, but will most likely lick them and beg for food once they enter the house.
Their other hobby is eating, and they enjoy food as much as a 5-star chef! They have the tendency to beg and eat and eat until you have to stop them.
