7-8 weeks is a good time to go home. Good luck.
I agree with this. The earliest I've seen a puppy go home is six weeks (a friend of my brothers) and even that is too young IMO. 7-8 weeks is good. The breeder I got Rambo from wouldn't let a puppy go until 8 weeks. 4 is way too young, and I couldn't see how being the only pup in the litter would affect what age he goes home. Good luck with your new pup when you get him!
