Olivia's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Olivia's Story...
Olivia is a beautiful Keeshond/ maybe Finnish Spitz or American Eskimo blend – but she bigger than those breeds generally are, so I am not sure. Her pictures don't do her justice!

We think she is about 2 to 3 years old, and she is full grown. I am not sure how much she weighs, but she is a medium-to-larger size dog – but most of it is her luxurious coat!

Olivia is an extremely well behaved girl -- she is quiet, sweet, mellow and very calm. She is wonderful with my other foster dogs. She blends right in and doesn’t need to be the alpha dog.

She is a sweet and mellow girl, and is lovely with children because of her good nature.

Olivia will walk quietly by your side and observe everything you do without interrupting. She is just a LOVER!

I did some research ach on Keeshonds and this is what I learned:

They are very intelligent and quite easy to train, and learn new commands very fast.

The Keeshond is an incredibly affectionate and devoted people-dog. One of the few breeds who has never been bred to hunt or attack, they have been bred for centuries solely for companionship. These are good-natured dogs who love everyone.

Keeshonds are renowned for their special fondness for children. They love to play with them and are incredibly patient with little ones. This is a dog who will be devoted to the whole family -- he is not a "one-man dog."

These dogs are ideal for formal obedience competition because they are very smart, eager to learn, eager to please, quick to obey, and they love to show off. They also tend to love agility, rally, and flyball. The Keeshond is an energetic dog and requires daily exercise.

Keeshonds crave affection and attention and want to go wherever you go and do whatever you do. They love life and they make it their job to love you.

They are extremely sensitive to their people's moods and love to cuddle when you need it. For this reason, among others, they are popular therapy dogs.

Keeshonden remain playful and bouncy well into old age, and some of them even smile

The Keeshond can live anywhere, apartment or farm, as long as they are with their people. They are quick to housetrain and quick to bond with their families.

For all of these reasons, I think Olivia would make an ideal companion for anyone – she is just a wonderful all-around mix!

Her adoption covers everything – her spay, all of her shots including rabies and bordatella, and whatever else she needs to be happy, healthy family buddy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olivia, a Poway Keeshond/Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Keeshond/Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Poway, or seeking a Keeshond/Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Poway.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Poway already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Poway breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Keeshond/Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Keeshond/Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Poway paves the way for another one to be saved.
