True to his heritage as a barge dog, this medium-size Nordic breed from the Netherlands has moderate exercise needs. He will be satisfied with a short walk on leash or playtime in a yard and easily adapts to his owner’s activity level. The Keeshond
is well suited to life in a small space such as an apartment or condominium as long as he’s taught not to bark too much. He is 17 to 18 inches tall and weighs 35 to 45 pounds.
