So this morning at the dog park I met a guy with his 4 1/2 month old sable GSD. He was telling me how his puppy's sire and mare are MWD dogs and his puppy was shipped to a kennel in NJ from Czech Rep at 4 1/2 weeks old. So I was like, "hmmm that's strange I thought most breeders separate the puppies from the mom when they are 8 weeks and older before shipping them overseas". Well according to him it is standard practice over there. Then he went onto the virtues of how the puppy's dad is 130lbs and the mom is like 100lbs. Any how, do breeders overseas ship puppies at 4.5 weeks old? Seems like it goes against the grain from what I've been learning on this board. Some one kindly educate me?
I don't know why but I felt like there was a lot of ego, bravado, chest pumping for an early Sunday morning. Well too much for my liking anyway but that's a personal opinion. He complimented my dog but then went into his puppy's pedigree.
