A Schipperke is a small Belgian breed of dog going back to the early 16th century. Small in size, but big in character, there was a long debate whether these dogs were terriers or sheepdog, but the external characteristics won.
A Schipperke is an all-rounder: it has strong herding, hunting and watching instincts.
