What Breed is My Dog? (Schipperke?)

I am attaching my 1 year old male dog's images, can anyone please let me know his breed coz, while adopting him, we were told that he is a Pomeranian, but he doesn't look like one. I know that he is definitely a Spitz, but whether an American Eskimo or German, or Indian, or anything else.

The name that came to my head was Skiperkee (I know that is mispelled), I could be totally wrong, but at least I tried! Good luck!

I'm not sure how big your dog is, but he looks just like my long haired x short haired chihuahua. Her fur stands up on her back when she is excited or barking. His coat looks identical to my girl's. However I would think if he is bigger than a chihuahua in size, then he could be a chihuahua cross. He looks like he has the typical head and facial features of a chihuahua.

He does look like he could be part Pomeranian but they are usually very small. It's hard to tell in the picture how big he is. He's definitely a nice looking little guy. Eskimo Spitz are a small to small medium sized dog and always white like he is. He does have some of their traits. We have a couple of Japanese spitz here on ThriftyFun and he does look a little like them. I think they are all related.

Good luck.

Does his tail curl over his back? And how big is he? Does he have the characteristic spitz fur with an undercoat and then an overcoat?

He looks like a pom mix. We have a pom. Keep in mind that poms were shrunk from 30 lbs to 5 lbs in 100 years, so if the breeder is not careful, you can get a much larger dog than breed standard. My dog is 15 lbs and black, but she's definitely pure pom.

Yes, all "spitz" breed dogs are related. Poms are the smallest of the spitz breeds, going up to husky.

he is definatly a mixed breed. very pretty. i bet he is a sweety. just so you keep him at a good weight for his size and brush his fur regulary and of course vet visits you will be taking good care of him.

I agree with the person that said "schipperke", but it is hard to tell for sure without knowing the dog's size/weight. Here's a pic of a black schipperke: www.pups4sale.com.au/schipperke_04a.jpg

I don't think it's a skipperkee; I have one and they are always black. I would say it's a spitz or mixed breed.

How tall is he and how much does he weigh? Also, what is his tail like? Have a look here: www.akc.org/.../breeds_a.cfm

Jo I would suggest your dog is part Newfoundland. It's definitely mixed because it's ears are too upright.

I just want to correct that post that claimed that all Schipperke's are black, not so!
www.midwatchschips.com/color.cfm Chocolates, blues, whites, red & creams are acceptable!

Go to this site and see all the other colors available, scroll to the bottom and read the breeders post and look at his pix!

Hope this helps a little as some of these registered dogs don't even look like a schip, take a peek so you will know in the future that the dog breeds you may be familiar with are not the only ones that exist.

Remember that there are many colors of breeds that exist outside the US and eventually they make it here!

He looks like he has a lot of pom in him to me. His tail is a give-a-way and the thick coat around his chest. He is adorable what ever he is.

I see Pomeranian in the face, but not the body. The only way to know for sure what his bloodline is is to have a DNA test done.
