Schipperke Maltese Mix - Kenn
Kenny at 2.5 years
Our Schipperke Maltese mix Kenny is certainly a character. He’s a little dog with a big dog attitude. His Dad was a Schipperke and his mother, a Maltese. Very cheeky but very loyal and affectionate. Loves his walks but a little crazy when taken off the leash!!! Loves to chase birds and soak in the dirtiest puddle he can find! He’s very protective and will certainly let us know if anyone is approaching our house. He loves to run laps and is extremely fast, we can’t ever catch him!
He’s a wonderful addition to our little family. Very intelligent. Loves training but isn't always consistent with his obedience. We find that we can’t let him ‘take an inch’. However, he’s fantastic with kids, enjoys their company greatly! He can be a fussy eater. Some days he will eat anything and then other days, he is quite happy to have very little.
Kenny is long haired... lots of the kids think he’s “Hairy McClary” (a favourite children’s book character from New Zealand, popular in Australia too!) We have never come across another Schipperke Maltese mix... so he’s even a little more special to us!!!
