About Me

Amy was adopted March 2022!

Amy is a 16 week (as of 2-5-22) old puppy. She is part of an accidental litter. Mom is a Keeshond. We don’t know for sure who dad is, but we suspect he was an Australian Shepherd.

Amy is such a sweet, gentle little soul who loves to play with her siblings but takes a little while to warm up in new situations. Amy has a beautiful honey-colored coat.

Each of these adorable, home-raised puppies is unique in personality and appearance. They’re all active, healthy, and playful, and will generate endless smiles with their antics.

A Keeshond is often described as a friendly, lively, outgoing, loyal, child-friendly breed and the mom of these puppies, who is still with her pups, boasts all those attributes. She grew up with a 5 year old boy and loves children. Physically, she has also passed along to her puppies the distinctive “spectacles” (eye glass markings) around their eyes, a curled tail and a beautiful, double-coat.

An Australian Shepherd is a breed described as smart, work-oriented, exuberant. They share many of the qualities that apply to a Keeshond, and often excel in agility and other dog sports.

As with all puppies, these youngsters are inclined to explore everything with their mouths and nails so puppy-proofing their environment, and constant supervision, is essential. Patience and a commitment to positive training are also needed.

The puppies are a great match for someone who will be around their pup, and to a lesser degree their dog, much of the day and are active outdoors where a puppy or dog would be a great companion.

Grooming is easily done at home, even into adulthood. Although the coat will not require professional grooming or a special cut, both parent breeds are double-coated, so you will need to spend an hour a week brushing it thoroughly to avoid mats and excessive shedding.

Both breeds have a reputation for being quite easily trained if you’re consistent. To ensure a good start in life and a dog able to obey basic commands, we strongly recommend attending a puppy class and basic obedience class.

The puppies are up-to-date on worming, vaccinations, and vet care and are microchipped. All pups will be altered prior to adoption so some may not be ready to “go home” until mid-February.

If you can provide a devoted forever-home where everyone will treasure a puppy and support their growth into a well-balanced dog, please complete an application today! The adoption fee for this puppy is $400.
