Not to many people know about this breed. If you like guard dogs but are a fun of the toy breeds this could be the dog 4 you. I dont like small dogs but i just wanted to see if you guys know about schipperkes. They weigh in at 12-16 pounds and have a greater protection ability than a boxer. I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw this on a website (animal planet dog breed directory). Anybody wanna clear up this situation for me.
