At about a foot tall, the Schipperkes are tiny, compact dogs, but don’t let the size fool you. He loves to work hard, whether it’s catching vermin with his cat-like agility or serving as a watchdog. His puffy black coat adds volume to his appearance.
The Schipperke hails from Belgium, and his name means “little captain” in Flemish – a fitting moniker for this confident, intense, clever little guy. But he’s not serious all the time; this breed has a fun side and will bring a healthy dose of mischievous to his new family.
