A New Owner's Guide to KeeshondseBook - 2012
Keeshonds (pronounced kayz-hawndz) are medium-sized dogs with sturdy figures, dramatic two-layer coats and richly plumed tails. Their friendly temperament combined with their outgoing and affectionate nature makes them an excellent choice of pet. The history of the Keeshond makes for interesting reading. According to the American Kennel Club, the breed descended from the Arctic strains found in the Samoyed, the Norwegian Elkhound and the Chow Chow, and changed little over the last two centuries. Originally known as the German Spitz, Keeshonds were particularly popular in Holland during the late 18th century, serving as watchdogs on riverboats and farms. Later, Keeshonds were thrust into the public eye by the leader of the Dutch Patriot political party, Kees de Gyselaer. He gave Keeshonds their new name, thanks to his ownership of a dog named Kees.
