Abby and my Empire have a lot in common. He is also 18 weeks, just finished class Sunday and only weighed 9 pounds at 8 weeks. I'll be keeping an eye on Abby's threads. Beautiful girl.

there is a myriad of gene combinations.
Glad you lucked out with Abby.
reputable breeders strive to weigh the odds in favor of a dog and, hopefully have a more reliable outcome.

Update on Abby! 18 Weeks and a Question
Just thought I would give an update for anyone who is curious. Abby is approaching 5 months now and it has been a fun journey so far. She has grown so much since we adopted her ( 9 pounds at 9 weeks, now almost 30) and learned even more! We wrapped up puppy classes last Saturday and are checking out different options for the next level. I am very interested in dock diving and also dog scootering but I don't know if we will actually do "scootering". I do have a walky dog for my bike for when she is older. She gets along well with our other dog, Johnny, though he does sometimes grow tired of her. She is SUPER friendly. On walks she wants to greet every single person we see. In the petstore she is forever trying to lick everyone's legs as we walk through the store. So far, she has only barked twice (outside of barking while playing with our other dog). She barked a few days ago when she heard our neighbors dog going crazy and on a walk yesterday we passed a dog that was barking at us from a yard and she stopped, turned and looked at him/her and let out one single bark! I think she was saying "hush!". Here are some recent pics of her. Oh her ears are odd, one sticks straight out to the side and one is flopped over in the front, but sometimes if something is very interested they both go up for a short time. She is very much teething right now. After reading a lot of posts on this forum I am concerned about her overall health and mental well being. I have seen a lot of posts about how horrible byb dogs can be and how they can be unstable and all of that. Since I adopted her from a rescue, what if anything can I do or be on the lookout for as far as health/behavior concerns? Since people are told if they buy a byb dog that they are getting a poorly bred dog, does it mean I probably adopted a poorly bred dog? I just want to help her have a great life.
