Oh I had no idea! LOL They are def. few and far between here, though I don't doubt there are more in other areas.

I looked into them briefly, and they seem like they'd be great dogs with the right owner.

I have a friend that breeds schipperke's. I like them they are friendly & fun little guys. They do tend to bark quite alot. I know acouple of other people that compete with these guys in agility and they do really well. These guy's do have a lot of breed health problems like Epilepsy, Autoimmune skin problems, Cushing***8217;s, Diabetes mellitus, and Atopy, Eye problems,Luxating Patellas and Thyroid issues. So I would get one of these guys from a breeder that does their breed health testings.

I've run into a handful of them over the years. I've heard them described as "Miniature Belgians (i.e. Tervs and Groendals)" and it's pretty accurate. They're fast, agile, quick to alert bark, great at swimming and rather protective of their spaces.

I've only ever known one and he was very sharp and protective, didn't have any trouble using his teeth if he felt like it.

I've always liked them, but they are on my "not ready, may never be ready" list

According to some they were used as part of the founding of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi

That's so strange! I looked them up in this little dog dictionary I have and it says, "These dogs have almost no health problems!"
