A true Northern breed, the Keeshond has an alert expression on a foxlike face with markings that resemble spectacles. Lively and full of personality, this breed is affectionate and loyal to his human companions. An excellent watchdog, the Keeshond is an energetic dog that should be exercised daily. His big, fluffy coat and plumed tail require grooming twice a week.
