Stark came home at 8 weeks and Zefra came home at almost 14 weeks.

Zefra was almost potty trained, was crate trained and knew sit/wait.

I'll let you guess which one I like better... LOL

LOL, Hmmm -totally- the 8 week old pup. Just jokin'. xD I got Nour at 7.5 weeks and man, was he a brat. And he still (sadly) is one, lol. I'm waiting when he starts to stop nibbling.

It's illegal to sell a puppy under 8 weeks old in many states. Some states allow puppies to be sold as young as 7 weeks old, but of the 20 states that have puppy age sale laws, none of them allow puppies to be sold at 6 weeks old. Unfortunately, there are still 30 states that have no laws about puppy sales at all.

Otto was 8 weeks old.
Circe was 3 years old when I brought her home. I will only bring a pup home older than 8 weeks never younger than that. Any reputable breeder would never send a pup home younger than 8 weeks.
