Default New Puppy? Yes, Indeed.

Hello,
I posted some months ago about how I was thinking about getting a working puppy, and it turned out that I knew absolutely nothing about the breeder, the ancestory, or the litter. That, I know, was a very irresponsible act on my part. It also turns out, that I was wrongly informed by someone, and the litter was not going to be sold at 6 weeks, but at 8 weeks (the whole litter). When I told the breeder (her name is Maria) that I wanted her to keep my puppy until he was 8 weeks old she looked surprised and asked me how early I thought she would sell them. When I told her that someone told me that she was selling them at 6 weeks, her eyes immediately popped out of her head and she told me, very calmly, that 6 weeks is much too young. Maria is not an irresponsible breeder, she was very concerned about Parvovirus and preventing it. She also told me that if this puppy didn't work out for me and I had to get rid of him, to give him back to her right away. She had him microchipped Also, the reason she hasn't titled the sire/dam, is because of a very serious health problem in her family. She cares a lot about her dogs. She calls me occationally, asking how the puppy is doing, and she visits the field on training days every-once-in-a-while to see how he does. Varick is now 14 weeks old (born on August 12) and he is doing very well.
There are some dogs in Varick's pedigree that are not in the database, but the dogs that are, I am pretty pleased with.
(Sorry it took so long for me to post, I have been extremely busy, as you can imagine.)
Some of you may be incredibly disappointed, but I am happy with the decision I have made.

Varick vom Haus Jeffery

He's beautiful, that's for sure! It almost looks like his tail is striped in the top photo...or it could just be the way it comes across on the computer. I love his big ol ears

He is a very handsome boy! You make the best choice that works for you! We had a little frustration when helping my MIL find hers. My wife's siblings got involved and complained about the cost & blah blah blah. Congratulations and enjoy him!

Thank you! Hmm, you're right. I've never noticed that, so it might be just the way the camera took the photo. (I used my phone's camera, so I wouldn't be surprised.)

His lines, do you mean? He has DDR working (probably some Czech as well), and German show.
