Kaz Purcell Wales Hi ,just looking around on the internet and saw the name Neradmik.Back in mid 70’s it was my joy to be owned by Julyn Thumbkin( Fonzie ) and I seem to remember there being a few Neradmik’s in his lineage.Also previous Kee’s that we owned(I am sure they own us) were Rhinevale’s in fact our first one Rinty (Rhin evale Renegade) bought me up unfortunately our second Timba (Renegade Rhinevale) had epilepsy (at the time ’71 one of 2?? to suffer from it) Do love their stubborn,loving nature though once you’ve had one you never quite forget them  
Patricia Schaff Charlotte, NC I love my Apollo and he is sweetest dog. My second Keeshond and my favorite breed.  
Brian Robbins CIRENCESTER, GLOUCESTERSHIRE In 2010 the thought of having a dog was something we had not contemplated, it was only in November when our daughters Alsation puppy died tradgetically with hole in the heart, that our thoughts turned in the direction of helping her to find a replacement. Brousing the dog books my attention kept coming back to the picture and write up of the Keeshond, nothing else appeared to match up to it. I started making enquiries, leaving my phone number and email address, nothing was available in the UK. Then by chance I made contact with Alison Passmore, Torrikees, on Christmas Eve, it turned out that one of her bitches had given birth to six puppies the day before, 3 boys and 3 girls, The girls were spoken for but if I replied quickly there was chance of having a boy, this I did and then the long wait before we could collect it. By this time my daughter had booked a Newfoundland, just 4 weeks older than the Keeshond, but by this time we were hooked on the thought of having such a wonderful dog. We feel even more honoured and priviledged to know that we were lucky to get one at all, one out of 103 born and registered in 2010 and to have gained the friendship of Alison and Ivan Passmore.  
walt wyeth Ealing, London Have you seen the Guardian today? ( sat 1st Oct) the independent bookshops directory comments on our shop “The Owl & Pussycat Bookshop” & mentions 2 furry Keeshonds, who are on hand to Delight the children.  
Carolynn Chance Australia I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing your Website. Reading about the wonderful Keeshonds & their antics & peculiarities has been such a ‘buzz’. The photographs are fabulous. We have a 16year old Keeshond named Yasha. We hope that you don’t mind that she has a tiny bit of German Shepherd, so we were told, from her father. She has been the most fantastic friend & companion but is a dear ‘old lady’  
Angela Stevens Kent I bumped into a Keeshond owner today and had a lovely chat, which reminded me of our own dog. I started reminiscing and Googled this site. We owned Doniagayrt of Dorlan Gogh (AKA Togs) many years ago, who was Champion Keeshond puppy of Wales. We rescued him from his elderly owner, who could no longer cope with him as she was becoming disabled, and he was our beloved pet until he died many years later.  
Door de Wolff (ex Swagers) Waddinxveen Netherlands Very nice site.  
liane RAMSAY london my grandad Tommy Merry bread keeshounds to crufts level in the late 50s 60s his kennel name was Merrybell and he bread Monarch of Merribell. if you have ancester of these dogs we would be so happy to see  
Barbara Eggleston Doncaster Really enjoyed the Keeshond Club Ch Show the new venue was really great plenty of space a good atmosphere which is hard to achieve in a large hall clean, good toilets plenty of space for cages and tables and we really appreciated the committee allowing us to have a stall at the show. Hope you carry on having shows at this venue. The car parking was a bit of a trek but the steward allowed unloading at the door so that was not a problem and we always have a good walk to the show from all car parks at ch shows. WELL DONE EVERYONE
Sue Christie Hillsborough, Northern Ireland I’m trying to locate a keeshond breeder in Northern Ireland (or the Republic, or if necessary Northern GB). I’m retiring in about 18 months and wish to get a keeshond puppy at that time, but would like to be in contact with someone about availability – do i need to get on a list?  
Caithlin Tracey Cardiff, WAles Hi, I recently emailed the club secretary, as we are thinking of having a Keeshond and were asking for advice. I thought it possible that my email was not picked up, or was put in your SPAM box, so just thought I’d try this route to contacting you! We have found your guide to being owned by a Keeshond very useful. Thankyou.  
Julia Rosol Dallas, Texas and then st. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles My daughter adopted Benny when he was only 2 weeks old and because she was gone all day to school, and I worked at home..he and I just bonded and when I moved to the Caribbean, of course he went with me. He is now 13 years old and whenever someone meets him, they always say..he doesn’t really know that he’s a dog! He plays with rabbits and cats, etc. and is so enjoyable and follows me wherever I go and always has. When he was only 9months old, I had a trainer come to my house but they said it was useless because he already did everything I said! He’s an amazing dog! He is about 85% Keeshond and 15% Shepard. He’s red instead of gray and he does like to be shaved and does have skin allergies every so often but it is manageable. When I travel away., he does tend to lay by the door and wait for me. I was always afraid of dogs growing up and was a cat person, but he has been a remarkable companion. He is definitely one of the most interesting and loyal pets I have ever come across!  
Nicky Chittlehampton . Devon I have enjoyed looking at your new website. So interesting and full of useful information and photos. Love the Club Archives page. Really enjoyed looking at Audrey Woodiwiss’s keeshonds that she bred over the years. Looking forward to seeing more breeders included if possible. As I know there must be alot of hard work involved. I cannot imagaine life with out a keeshond, they are such loving and loyal companions.
raymond Ireland Hi I have been trying very hard to find a female Keeshond puppy that would be ready to go in the next month. I am just wondering do could you help me at all with any possible litters that will around soon. Kind Regards Raymond  
Jukke Nellen Finland I just got my first Keeshond and browsing the web trying to find more and more information about the breed 🙂
Candy Harris, Childrick Keeshonden Boise, Idaho Looking at the Duroya Keeshonden made me feel very nostalgic. I bred and showed Kees for 47 years. My dogs were of the old type which I truly love.. They did very well in the show ring winning multiple groups and Best In Shows. How I regret the changes made to the breed.  
Carlos Switzerland, Zürich Hi UK, I’m as well a Keeshond owner from Switzerland, i just wana say hi, and you have a very nice HP. Regards Carlos  
María José GALICIA-SPAIN I enjoyed reading the history of the keeshond. This website has interesting information about the breed. Congratulations! My sweet “kees” is called Miranda.  
Elizabeth Johnson Blackburn These seem to be lovely dogs – I met some at Crufts this year. I’m looking for a smaller breed of dog that requires less exercise than my mental Welsh springer spaniels!! I have 2 Welshies and a border collie at the moment but they are getting older  
John and Jill Pedrick Louth Lincolnshire  Hello. We lost our lovely Golden retriever a few years ago and have decided we would now love to own a new puppy. We do not want to replace him like for like and have been introduced to a neighbours Keeshond. What a wonderful dog !!! We are both retired but active and can offer a loving and caring home. If anyone can help us in our quest please contact us. Thank you John and Jill 07949 595058  
Julie Sneddon Catterick Garrison Hi there, I love your website! I was sadly left dogless a few years back and, since then, have satisfied my doggie hankerings by becoming a dog sitter, and borrowing everyone else’s. I feel that now is the time to start thinking of having my own again, and would absolutely love a keeshond. I notice there is a breeder near me in your directory, but do you know how I would get in touch with him?  
Siobhan Peeling DE56 1DZ Hello, we are looking for one or two keeshonds – either puppies or rescue – to come to live in our family with two children aged 8 and 6.
