Available Rescued Schipperkes
SchipperkeRescue.Net lists brief summaries and photos of the Schipperkes that are currently available through our rescue program. SRN places our dogs in verified foster homes where the dog receives all required medical care, updating of vaccinations, proper diet and exercise, and socialization and training. SRN works directly with the foster care provider to monitor the progress of the dog and to determine when the dog is ready for placement in a permanent home. SRN does not accept dogs into our foster care program if they have a history of biting or develop behavior issues during foster care.
From time to time, SRN provides courtesy listing for Schipperkes that are with their original owners or in some other home that is not one of our verified foster homes. Such listings are noted as "COURTESY LISTING". If you are interested in learning more about one of these dogs, you should contact the foster care provider and seek as much information as possible. SRN does some pre-screening of these dogs, however, SRN assumes no responsibility for health or behavior issues for "courtesy listing" dogs. Adoption of any "courtesy listing" dog is between the owner and the adopting party, and any claims regarding health and/or behavior are the responsibility of the owner.
The Schipperkes list below are just some of the dogs for whom SRN is currently seeking homes. Please also check our Facebook page for information about other dogs that may be available for adoption to good homes. If you are not a Facebook user, please contact Susan Fogleman, our Rescue Coordinator, to find out about a Schipperke that might be the right match for you and your family.
Because we have so few available purebred Schips who are available, we have created a special page of courtesy listings of Schip mixes. If you are willing to consider giving a home to a part Schip (born on the wrong side of the blanket, so to speak 😉), please feel free to check out these Special Schipperke Mixes.
In the meantime, be sure to fill out an Adoption Application and send it as indicated on the
How to Adopt a Rescued Schip page. All instructions are there, and the application will be required in order to be approved as an adoptive home.
Zeke is currently in foster care for Ohio American Eskimo Rescue. All contacts should be made directly to them.
ZEKE came to the rescue back in September 2016 from an abuse case in Tennessee. He had some health issues to battle but he had no problem overcoming them and healing completely He was then adopted in January 2017 to a family with younger kids. We thought it was a good match but we discovered that Zeke needs a stronger owner to keep him in line. He needs to be in a home with a schedule, that includes his walking and exercise time. Zeke loves to walk and needs to be walked to burn off a lot of his puppy energy. You have to watch him otherwise he will become the alpha of the house, and you. He is fine in his foster home because he knows Mom is the alpha and she won't let the little stinker dominate the house. Besides loving walks, he loves to sit on the couch with you, riding in the car, going and meeting new people. He is about 20 lbs and 3 yrs old. He is very affectionate.
"Zeke came to O.A.E.R from a Tennessee shelter having been terribly abused. He has come a long way since we took him in a few years back. He was adopted out twice, but these folks were not Schipperke owners nor had they experience with the breed, and his very strong-willed personality got the best of them.
"His foster Mom has no problem with him at all, but she can't keep him. We are being extra careful in who will adopt him next. He is really a very loving dog!"

Please read the following comments below before applying to adopt one of our dogs.
We do require that anyone wanting to adopt one of your dogs will have to come to Ohio. We do not transport or fly dogs to any location. We want to meet the new family and see the interaction between the dog and human(s). If you have a dog it is required that the dog(s) come with the family so we can see the interaction between the dogs.
You will have to fill out an application to adopt one of our dogs. We require a Vet reference and home visit.
We will not adopt out to owners that have an invisible fence. It does not protect the dog from humans or other animals from harming the dog.
If you do not practice proper care of your past or current dogs you will be denied. We feel that the dog needs an annual wellness exam with the Vet. It is a state law all dogs must have a rabies shot.
Winnie came in to a new shelter to us around 6/10/2019 as a stray. As soon as we heard about her (June 21st). we contacted the shelter immediately. They were in an overcrowding situation and were grateful that we did so and requested that we take her quickly. She moved into foster care the following day and scheduled for her first vet appointment. More later ...
UPDATE (6/22/2019) We have learned a lot about Winnie in the past 24 hours. She is smart, with a dominant NON-aggressive personality. She loves to grab your forearm with the strength of a gorilla and hump your elbow (that can be worked with!). She is NOT potty trained, and, while she learned how to use a doggy door quickly, the concept of what it is for (other than running through for play) escapes her. She loves playing with her senior foster brother and toys, but she rattles the nerves of her senior foster sisters who prefer a more sedate lifestyle. She is extremely energetic. Winnie has a true "all puppy" personality!
UPDATE (6/26/2019) Winnie has now been fully vetted and appears to be extremely healthy. She is UTD on vaccinations, on heart-worm prevention and spayed. Best guess, Winnie is maybe 1-1/2 years old, so still very much a puppy (Schips tend to start mellowing out about age 5 but are all puppy until that point!). She has a lot to learn but is very smart. She is highly social with other dogs and people. Winnie is wide open and needs a LOT of run time due to her exuberant energy. Winnie is not fully potty trained but is starting to learn that outside is the place to go. She does have a little bit of a chewing problem, so watch your shoes!
Winnie would love a home with a playful, social playmate and a fenced yard to run and play in. She is a major risk at this time for darting out of an open or non-secured door or gate and is far faster than you can imagine.
We are taking applications for this fun and loving little girl.
