Schipperke

The Schipperke is also known as the ‘Belgian Barge Dog’, ‘Little Captain’ and ‘Little Black Devil’. Originating in Belgium, Schipperkes were first noted in the writings of the monk Wenceslas in the 15th Century. In the 1800s Belgian gentlemen would craft special brass collars for their Schipperkes and proudly walk their dogs through town. Schipperkes also served as watchdogs and ratters on barges, keeping an eye on the cargo and befriending the horses that towed the barge.
