Schipperke

Curious, confident and faithful, the Schipperke originated in the Flemish provinces of Belgium. Protective of family and property, the breed is an excellent house dog with a fondness for children. An active breed, the Schipperke benefits from obedience classes and should receive regular exercise. The Schipperke’s harsh coat sheds several times a year but needs only weekly brushing and an occasional bath.
