Appa is a male Keeshond. He is purebred with a sweet temperament, and he has been with us since we purchased him as a puppy in the summer of 2020. His birthday is July 10, 2020. He is very fluffy and wants to be around you as much as possible. Also, likes to lay in front of the door to the house at night, which is probably due to his breed having been bred as barge dogs in Holland to protect their owner’s boats and docks, which is certainly in his nature.
He is a bit nippy with my 10 year old, and we have done dog training classes with him at Diamonds in the Ruff to try to correct this issue, however I feel we were unsuccessful as he is still having the same issues with our youngest child. He is great with our cat and our other dog, as well as all of our in-law’s dogs, and during doggie play dates he has always behaved exceptionally and been respectful. He enjoys walks, but he does not like car rides. Keeshonds get the zoomies and need to run it off, so a home with a fenced yard is ideal. He is a fluffy and very sweet boy, and I know he would be a great addition to somebody’s home, despite the fact that he is not working out with ours. I really hope that we can find someone who will be able to take him in and love him as much as he will love them.
