I am getting a Schipperke in the new few weeks when the pup is ready to come home. The parents are CKC. I do not plan to show or breed. This is a present for our 10 year old's birthday. I am a little more confused than I was before I started looking at this forum. My main and only concern is that the dog is healthy and that the parents are in good hands where they are b/c that matters for many reasons, obviously for the health and safety of the parents and the pups, but also b/c of temperment.
