Thanks to the genetic mishmash that makes up the Keeshond, they can often be mistaken for a Samoyed, Chow Chow, Elkhound, or Pomeranian. They have the same thick coat and body type. The Keeshond tail acts like a little puff ball that rests on top of their back, even though when it is unfurled it is of medium length. Their muzzle is medium in length and is well proportioned to the overall size of their head. On average, Keeshonds range from 17-19 inches tall and are roughly 35 pounds.
