I took a puppy home early once. He was 6 weeks or maybe younger. His eyes were still blue. I didn't know better. He is basically a good dog. I don't know if this was from bringing him home early or just how he is, but the problems he has are:

severe separation anxiety. He is alot better now, but he would go crazy if we left him with anyone else. He was ok at his own house. We went on a cruise and left him and Cloey with my parents. He destroyed their blinds trying to get out and slept basically on top of her whining all night for the first 3 nights. I felt terrible. He is better at being left now though.

He refuses to share toys. He is very possessive of all toys except bones. THis was not a problem until we got the GSD. Cloey only likes bones. The GSD likes everything and there have been a few fights, but it's getting better.

He doesn't really like playing with other dogs. He likes to play alone or with us, but not other dogs.

He is a wonderful dog though.
