These are two little Chocolate Schipperkes.  Heath is a little boy, while Winnipeg is a little girl. Heath is described as being more independent while Winnipeg is a little more hands on.  They are between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old.

Both of the dogs came from a puppy mill raid several months ago and were sent the WARL. They are in need of a home or foster home.  They do not have to stay together.  Both are UTD on vaccinations and spayed/neutered.

You will notice what appear to be scars in their faces. These are not a current health issue. They have been checked by a vet and by a Dermatologist. This is scarring from an immune reaction (most likely from a bad vaccine given to them at the puppy mill). The scarring will probably never go completely away but may improve to some degree.

These two special Schips need a loving, caring place, that will love them for who they are accept that they may never look perfect.

If you can help by adopting or fostering either one of them , please contact SchipFreak@schipperkerescue.net.

Male Spay/Neuter Status: Neutered
Age: 3-4 yr Health Status: UTD  on all vaccs; HW neg; microchipped
Size/Weight: Approx 17 lbs  

 Please meet BoBo!
Bo is an approximately 3-4 year old male Schipperke.  He was picked up as a stray by an animal shelter in north Georgia, so we have no information on his past.
Bo is a very friendly, energetic, sweet, loving boy.  He is pretty obedient and walks well on a leash.  He is good with having a bath, being groomed, and even really good about having his nails trimmed.  Bo is good with other smaller dogs around his own size and LOVES to play.  He is not a barker, but is an alert little watch dog.  He is an inside dog and does very well about not getting into things.  He loves nothing better than to sit in our lap or by your side!
For homes with children, Bo would probably do best with school-age kids, as he might be too rambunctious for a  toddler.  Bo is neutered, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative and on Heartgard preventative and is microchipped.
Bo's adoption fee is $350 to Schipperke Club of America Rescue.  For more information and an SCA application, please email Barbara Lewis at goschips@bellsouth.net.




















Camden, ME
Coco is a displaced, 12-14 yearold Schip.  Her owner died, and the family, as much as they care for her, have two young dogs and  two young children, so Coco simply cannot get the attention and care to which she is accustomed.  So she is looking for a home where she can live out the rest of her life where there is a lot less chaos. She seems to be in good health is lively, and affectionate. She does have a cough that is controllable with pills.  She is going to have her teeth worked on on 3/6/09 this may help the cough issue.

If you have room in your heart and home for this precious girl, please contact SchipFreak@schipperkerescue.net.

Age: 3 yr Health Status: Fully vetted and in good health
Size/Weight: Approx 15 lbs  

Freya is as cute as a button and full of the dickens and has a tail!  Like most schipperkes, she is very intelligent, energetic and independent. She has been through basic obedience, is housebroken and crate-trained. She loves walks, rides in the car and cuddling on your lap, provided of course, that the cuddling is on her terms! She was surrendered by her previous owners because she did not get along with their other dog. In her foster home, she plays nicely with one of the dogs, but is a little too bossy for the other canine residents.
Freya’s best hope for a happy future would be in a home where she could be the only dog and there are no young children. Her ideal owner would have an active lifestyle, be knowledgeable and experienced with this breed, and willing to be a strong pack leader. She would love to be your very best friend. Could you give this precious girl a second chance?
A completed adoption application, agreement to terms of adoption and home visit are required, along with reimbursement of vet expenses. There is no adoption fee, however a donation to the Trista Fund, a fund which assists with medical expenses for rescued Schipperkes, is requested.  For more information please contact:

Well the SPCA staff told me that I am only the second Schipperke that has ever been brought to the shelter. Wow, there must not be many of us Schipperke's around here or we are just darn good dogs ... I vote for the we are just darn good dogs. Hello there, my name is Mabel and I am about 3 - 5 years old and I was brought in as a stray. I do already know how to sit and give you my paw ... in fact if you have a treat I will just bypass the sit part and give you my paw, you don't even have to ask. I am a very sweet gal, but I am very reserved with strangers - a characteristic of a Schipperke, so if you come by and I escape out the doggy door, it's because I don't know you yet. Once I figure out that you are not going to hurt me, I will be your best buddy, never leaving your side. In fact, I made friends with one of the girls here, she was rubbing behind my ears and stopped and I did not want her to stop, so I buried my head and pushed her hand with my nose until she started rubbing my ears again, and again and again. If you come by and I seem kind of standoffish, please give me a chance, I warm up real fast and we could be sooooo happy together.  For more info on me, please contact SchipFreak@schipperkerescue.net.

Sex: Male Spay/Neuter Status: Neutered
Age: About 5 yr Health Status: UTD on vaccs, microchipped.

Pepper is desperate to find his own home.  He's been in rescue for almost a full year and really needs his own human.

Pepper is a neutered male and is about 4 years old. He is micro chipped and up to date on vaccinations. Loves to go for walks and ride in the car. Also loves chin scritches and tummy rubs. Gets along okay with other dogs but, would prefer a home with no other dogs. A low key female may acceptable.  Seems to get along okay with cats, but has never lived with one. NOT good with small children. He may do well with an older child (over 12 years)  that knows how to properly act around a dog. Good at noticing birds even before you do and will keep your fenced in garden free of birds and other small pests. Loves to be with his person constantly and seems to be a one person dog. He will need an experienced Schipperke home with someone who is willing to continue working with him.  If interested in adopting Pepper or for more information please contact::

McLean, VA

Naomi is 7 years old. She is spayed and UTD on Vaccines, as well as on heartworm preventive.  She is good with dogs and likes people. Naomi has not been exposed to children, so would probably do best in a home with no small children.  She weighs 18 pounds, but as you can see in her photo's, she is a bit pudgy and should probably weigh about 15 or maybe 16 pounds.  She has no known medical issues.

Naomi's owner is on the road a lot, so Naomi is spending most of her time in a boarding kennel.  What Naomi really needs is a home where she doesn't have to boarded the majority of her life and where she can be put on a diet to lose a couple of pounds. Her owner is a loving, caring person that wants a better life Naomi.

Please, if you have a loving home to offer a sweet girl contact Susan at SchipFreak@schipperkerescue.net.

Naomi is not currently in rescue. She will be an owner placement so she doesn't have to go through the extra adjustments of being moved to a foster home first
