Dog of the Month: Keeshond

The Keeshond is a medium-sized Dutch dog characterized by a lion-like ruff. It is a member of the spitz family of dogs and usually weighs between 30 and 40 lbs.

These dogs are generally playful with quick reflexes and strong jumping ability. They are also quick to learn and eager to please. This combination makes them excellent agility and obedience dogs.

The Keeshond gets along well with children, and they like to be close to their humans whenever possible. While not aggressive to visitors, they generally announce newcomers loudly, and they have been used as watch dogs through Europe.

They are often used as comfort dogs, and at least one Keeshond was at Ground Zero on 9/11 to help comfort rescue workers.
