My advise would be do not under estimate how fast your pup will grow, at 9 weeks you will bring home a fluffy little thing that can fit into a small cat carrier......less than two months later you will have a dog bigger than a Labrador (Duke is 16 weeks old and was taller and longer than an adult Labrador we met at the park today)
If you do decide to buy a small starter crate don't expect it to last long. You are going to need a crate that is bulk and hard to move around within two months maximum
We started duke in a 42" crate, I think that is about the size he will need.
