Originating from Belgium the Schipperke has a long history. The first Belgian club being formed in 1888 in Brussels and the first UK club was inaugurated in 1890. Active, alert, inquisitive, a hardy dog, full of courage, with a sharp foxy face and bristling mane. The dense, harsh coat is not long enough to be troublesome, no stripping is required. They have a distinctive ruff and culottes on the hind legs. Tails are still normaly docked, but more are being seen with tails.
Colours are - usually black but other whole colours are allowed.

History
The earliest picture I have come across are from Robert Leighton's Book of the Dog. In this he gives a fairly good history of the clubs but says little of the dogs origions, other than that a Pomeranian (German Spitz) was used as a cross, with the hope of making the 'ruff' longer, but resulted in longer coats all over the body, which was not desired. There is mention of red, fawn and chocolate dogs at this time - "in 1892 a Mr W R Temple proposed the admission of Chocolate colour to the standard" but was refused!   Later - "other colours were permitted" (no date given)

The following pictures are from Leightons book dated 1912, by Cassell & Co Ltd.
