Het Zinneke, sometimes wrongly called Zinneke Pis, is a statue in Brussels erected in 1998.[1] Created by Tom Frantzen, it represents a urinating dog, along the same lines as the Manneken Pis (a boy) and the Jeanneke Pis (a girl).[2][3]

In August 2015, Het Zinneke was struck by a car, and was restored by the sculptor.[4]
