Good luck, Anthony.
I would be having panic attacks.
Unless my spouse promised that he would do 100% of the care, feeding, grooming, vetting and training. Oh, and cleaning hair and poop, too.

She probably *would* be fine but there are ways to make introductions. For two weeks Cyra only met Beau through HIS crate wires. THe day she curled up in a ball next to him for a nap is the day I formally let them meet. And then we had my husband and I both present.

Must've felt good to see this.

I wish I could say I had not learned the hard way that fear reactivity carries on over from dog to dog. Fortunately, Grim who was not mine as a puppy was/is a great role model and Beau spent much more puppy time with him than with Cyra. And his time with her was always supervised. Closely. But it was ok. Grim's influence had mellowed Cyra greatly. It does not take much to sow the seeds of mistrust in a pup.

do they have enough chain on him ?
collar too long , and upside down -- chain lead - totally useless for training ,

I don't care for the way he is sitting . Looks like he can't get his rear up underneath himself -- too short in upper arm , faulty front or his back is off. Would love to see a picture of this dog standing .

I agree about the collar and chain ( said the same to wife)

Don't know about everything else

Won't matter anyway, that pup has zero chance of coming into my home.
I already have my hands full.

You know I said that I decided that there would be "No More Dogs!" My husband's health and Havoc's unique personality made my life very complex.
But the neighborhood kids gave me Tempest, a pitbull, and she has not made my life easier but everyone else is happier so I guess that it's a wash. Havoc loves his friend and she adores him. They drive me crazy in the a.m. with the biting and wrestling but they seem to be more obedient as they compete for my attention.
You don't know how full your hands can get.

i don't mean to hijack the thread, but Piper sits like the puppy in the picture sometimes. other times, she sits just fine. is that something i should be worried about?

Apparently, she's been keeping in touch with the breeder.
So did you come up with a name yet??
