All About Schipperke Dogs and Puppies
There are many misconceptions about this feisty black dog. Some are led to believe that he is a relative of the Spitz breed, while others argue he is a descendant of the Pomeranian. Neither are correct, nor did this unique little dog originate as a Dutch dog, as some are prone to thinking. In fact, the Schipperke is a descendant of a black sheepdog, known as the Leauvenaar.
