| 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. Victorians nicknamed the Keeshond the Overweight Pomeranian. Keeshonden are considered by some to be a bit psychic, since they are so sensitive and sympathetic toward people.
