Peak to Peak Keeshond Fanciers, Inc. was started in 1985 by several people who had a variety of interests in the breed, showing, obedience, tracking, rescue, and breeding quality dogs per the American Kennel Club standard, and following the Keeshond Club Of America Code of Ethics. In September of 1985 the club was recognized by the state as a non-profit organization. The club in the early years was very active in pursing the goal of becoming sanctioned by AKC to host regional specialties and eventually a National Specialty here in Colorado. Over the years the interest in the club became predominately involved in the rescue of the breed. In November of 1997 the club was converted to 100% rescue and our non-profit status was officially changed to a 501(c)(3).
Our objective is to provide rescue and placement assistance to abandoned or unwanted purebred Keeshonden; and to promote the ongoing education of the Keeshond fancier and of the general public to knowledge and care of the Breed; and, to do all in it's power to protect and advance the interest of all breeds of companion animals.
Our placements of rescued Keeshonden are mainly in the state of Colorado, or in Wyoming just over the boarder within easy driving distance. We do not place out dogs on a "blind date" basis (meaning without the dog and people getting a chance to meet in person), and do not transport or ship our dogs out of state.
