Kooikerhondjes

Kooikerhondjes

Kooiker Hound (KOOIKERHONDJE)Cheerful, good natured, friendly, quiet, well-behaved, and alert; those are terms that are used to describe him. He is kind, happy and lively. They are also intelligent, attentive and more than willing to please their owner. He adapts to situations rather quickly, changing his behavior from quiet to lively. He will not always immediately like strangers, but once he warms up to someone, the trust will be there for the rest of his life.

The Kooikerhondje will not always immediately like strangers, instead choosing to retreat. But once they warm up to someone, the trust will be there for the rest of their life. The Kooikerhondje can make fine apartment dogs if exercised regularly, but a fenced yard would be more ideal. They have a medium energy level, yet are  usually quiet when indoors.

Kooikerhondje - If you happened to spy a Kooikerhondje walking down the street, you probably wouldn’t know what to call it, much less how to pronounce it (it’s “koy-ker-hondt-chuh”). Just seeing one of these dogs in the United States would be a treat because they are so rare.

The Kooikerhondje was bred in the 18th-century Netherlands for flushing and retrieving game birds.  It attracts curious birds by bouncing about and waving its bushy tails.  The breed practically disappeared in World War I but was bred back into existence by Baroness Hardenbroek van Ammerstool, only to be very nearly decimated again by World War II.  Due to the small genetic pool, some have inherited defects but most are good-tempered even with children & suited to urban living.

If I don't have a dog of this breed in the future I am doing something horribly wrong with my life.
