Welcome to our web site
been breeding Keeshonden since 1985, and I pride myself on providing new owners
with the best-quality puppy and personal service. I breed once a year so a
litter may be available at varying times.
Parents are OFA certified and CERF certified. My male DNA is registered with the AKC.
website is about a breed of dog called Keeshond. First a little history about
Keeshond has an arctic origin. In the eighteenth century the Keeshond was known
as "a dog of the people." In its veins runs the blood of the Samoyed,
Chow Chow, Elkhound, and Pomeranian. At the beginning of the French Revolution,
it became the symbol of the common and middle-class Dutchmen who were led by
the patriot Kees de Gyselaer. The breed then suffered a long period of neglect.
They were first introduced into the UK by Mrs. Wingfield-Digby and did not
become popular again until 1920, when it arrived in the US. This typical Spitz
type breed was used to guard canal boats. It became known as the Dutch Barge
Dog, although in Victorian England it was perhaps rather unkindly referred to
as the overweight pomeranians.
are compact little animals with a strong resemblance to its ancestor the
Samoyed, with oblique chestnut eyes, erect triangular ears, and its
medium-length tail rolled on its back. It has a cream or pale gray undercoat
and a luxurious outer coat that comes in shades of gray with black tips and
stands away from the body. Its coat always appears to have just been washed and
combed. The markings are quite definite and there are definite pale spectacles
around its eyes.
