7-month-old Keeshond pup needs a companion either in our home or at a caregivers home. He is crate trained, but doesn't really like the crate. For periods that we need to be away longer than 2 hours, we'd like to have someone to feed him, potty him and keep him company. He loves play tug or chasing balls and he loves walks. He prefers attention, but will lay down and rest when he realizes his human friends won't be playing. He's friendly and loves people and kids. He does seem to love all dogs, but we have seen a few dogs that didn't love him. He is not yet neutered so if he was with other dogs, he would need to be watched in case of mounting. We think having other dogs to play with would be very fun for him, but prefer to avoid places with large amounts of different animals coming through to help prevent common illnesses.
