Tell us the story of how a Keeshond came into your life. Was your dog a rescue, a shelter, did you personally step forward and remove your dog from a sad life?

first, Happy Birthday, Fibro_witch!

My Keeshond's name is Kosh.
I also have a kitten named Moki (he's about 4 months old) who likes to ruthlessly attack Kosh's back legs, or bite Kosh's face/jaw/ears. In return Kosh gently gnaws at Moki, getting slobber all over him. They apparently love each other!

I have had my keeshond since late March, 2002. He was a rescue. Some local family with about 5 kids had tied him to a tree for the first 5 years of his life, and decided that he was "too much trouble" to take care of. They put up an ad for a free keeshond in their vet's office, a friend saw it, knew that I was looking for a keeshond, and told me about it. The family couldn't be happier to be rid of him. And he couldn't have been happier to come live with me (altho at the time all he was thrilled about was the rare treat of a car ride). He truely looks at me as if I'm some sort of a god,and that's great for my self-esteem!

My Keeshond's name is Chief.

He was either three or six years old when we picked him up from an animal shelter run by a friend of the family. His paperwork gives two different ages and this seems to stem from the fact that his original owner went into a hospital and it was her family that took care of "disposing" of her various pets.

He was put in five other homes before coming to ours and though we may never know what happened while he was with those other families, for the first three years he was with us, he feared everything.

Now he has the house to himself, pettings whenever he wants and a constant mission to open up cabinets and scarf down the entire bag of dog food.
