My parents dog, the dog I grew up with, passed away last Monday. My mom swore up and down that she would never get another dog, but she and my Dad both confessed to each other that they have been looking at Keeshond websites. Dad is looking at rescues, but Mom refuses to get a rescue. She is worried about the dog having problems. I have tried to convince her that an all breed rescue who has their dogs in foster homes should know enough about their dogs that she should be able to get what she's looking for, but she won't listen. Her neighbor volunteers with the local humane society, and in the past year has taken in two foster dogs that had a lot of issues. I think that may be where this fear of rescues is coming from. My Dad has tried telling her that rescues get puppies too, but she's saying no to that too. Zeus was from a BYB and I would like to prevent them getting one from another BYB if possible. If anyone knows any good Keeshond breeders in NC or the surrounding states, I would be grateful for a recommendation.
