The Keeshond is an old breed, once a companion and watchdog on the barges and boats that traveled the canals and rivers of Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries. He's almost exclusively a companion dog today. He's a people-lover; willing to participate in all family activities, he thrives with people who expect this of their dog. He is lively, alert, and intelligent--qualities that won him status as the most beloved dog in Holland.
