The Keeshond is a medium sized fluffy breed that often looks like it is smiling – it actually earned the nickname “Smiling Dutchman”. Keeshonden (the plural) are stocky dogs who have an affinity for learning tricks. They even tend to pick up things that you don’t mean to teach them, so be careful! They are great companions for children, as they love to explore and will happily partake in any games that kids will play with them. Keeshonden will alert to visitors with a loud bark, but will then happily allow them into the house!
