    I don't think she's talking LEGALLY...she's talking about what's best for the pups. 8 weeks is usually the minimum for them to be fully ready for their new homes.

    I'm not disagreeing with you on that but old folks like me remember when the standard was 6 weeks. Many folks still go by that rule of thumb and are surprised that the current preferred age is 8 weeks. I could stand 12 weeks being the age to leave Mom. I think 8 is still too young in many ways.

    The age is a moot point because he is 8 weeks old now. I think I am going to take a break from here, which is a shame as this looked to be such a promising forum. I would like to thank those that have been kind and supportive, but I really can't take the judgemental scrutiny from some. I don't know if I am just being too sensitive or what, but I just really wanted to be with those that also have a bully, not feel like I have to defend myself from others.

    Trace, I wasn't judging you or anyone. Actually, I might have been defending the breeder for letting a pup under 8 weeks go. It wouldn't be your mistake anyway. It's up to the breeder to know that kind of stuff, not the new Mom.

    I'm an "old folks" too! Yup..I remember 6 weeks too, but I try to block that out! Lol

    Oooh..I'm sure no one meant it as judging you. It's hard to distinguish with the written word. Often one one men's as Avicenna can be construed as judging. Rest assured, you not get judged here. We are here to help and earn together. Nothing more..nothing less!
