Schipperke, 13-15 years
The Schipperke hails from Belgium and is known as the “little captain”… however they’re often called the “little black devil” as well. This breed is highly curious with above average intelligence and the tendency to wander off.
Schipperkes make great family pets and are easy to keep groomed. They maintain great health and make superb watchdogs and hunters—part of the reason they were bred in the first place. These little guys (or gals) will be catching rats for you for around 13 to 15 years.
