| Tikva the Keeshond was a therapy dog used at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks for the benefit of the rescue workers. Keeshonden have such clingy tendencies that they have earned the nickname Velcro Dog. Keeshonden are considered by some to be a bit psychic, since they are so sensitive and sympathetic toward people. Keeshonden were once used to guard Dutch canal boats.
