Welsh Kennel Club

Breed: Schipperke

WKC. Schipperke

Quite a varied and challenging entry with a lot of compromises to be made. Finding a dog that was small, cobby, with short brisk strides and intensely lively was a hard task. I doubt I succeeded in finding the complete package all in one exhibit.
