Schipperke dog breed information
The schipperke is an ancient Belgian purebred that has a long history. The Schipperke is the customary barge dog of the Low Countries and is known as the “little captain” of Belgium. This little black dog is a robust, long-lived buddy who never has a dull moment.
They lack a tail and have a head that resembles a fox, a broad chest, and short feet. They are perfect rat-catching machines thanks to their strong jaws, necks, and forequarters, as well as their stealthy, cat-like hunting manner.
