puppy foot deformation?
Hi, I'm new here and I'm planning to get a GSD. I went to a breeder the other day and he said that puppies should be kept outside where the surfaces are rough until they are 5 months old. He said that if the puppies are not kept outside, their feet will become deformed or something like that. I know this is absurd, but my mother believes the breeder. I also know that dogs should be kept inside where the pack is, and dogs that spend their days and nights outside can get stressed out. I was about to ask this question on Yahoo, but I want proof that dogs must be kept inside from people who actually own GSDs.
