    I'm gonna reiterate this:

    It's illegal to sell puppies in NY (as in most states) before they're 8 weeks old. What people are condoning, and what the breeder is doing is illegal.
    These laws weren't enacted to make it tough for the consumer, they were put into place to protect the dogs from unethical breeders.

    Everyone has an opinion, the fact is, there's been research done that shows taking pupps away from their litter (whether or not you have other dogs isn't the point) at a very young age can be detrimental to the dog.
    Our own anecdotal evidence doesn't make a difference in the larger picture.

    All three of my bulldogs were from the same breeder and she will not release any of her pups till they are 9 weeks.... so based on her 30+ years of breeding, showing and judging and my vet agreeing with her process -- I lean to waiting and getting your new baby. I am sure the sitter is someone the breeder trust and a week will make a difference to the pup, but just an inconvenience to you as to when you get her

    @Donnam she could of been worse. she could of developed noise issues, socialization problems with strangers, there's just a ton of things that could of gone wrong.

    honestly, i'm not talking out of my behind- it's very important to keep the pups with their litter for as long as possible.

    I'm sorry, but I'm with @nycbullymama totally here. It may be convenient for you both, but not for the pup.

    There's a reason why it's illegal to sell puppies in NY before they're 8 weeks old- they need that time with their mom and siblings.

    I'm gonna be blunt here, I don't like your breeder. She knows this and is still willing to give her up at a ridiculously young age. Very wrong of her.

    Google what separating a puppy that young does to their social development, and what problems it can cause down the road. Don't let her talk you into taking her at 6.5 weeks.

    I am waiting to hear back from my fiance, as I have texted him and told him what I thought. I think we are going to wait to get her, it's best for all of us anyways. I could get more shopping done, and I would want her to get more sociable before I went to get her. Thank you for all of your feedback!! Helped me make my decision

    I know you are super excited to get your baby and I would be too, but 8 weeks is the law in almost every state and there are reasons for it.

    Many breeders will give them up earlier so they don't have to do the work, (shame!) but I can tell you they learn so much during those two weeks from their litter mates and adults it really does make a difference.

    I'm not usually a judgemental person but something bothers me badly-- what breeder plans a vacation when they have pups? That to me is a huge red flag.

    I would definitely wait until 8 weeks of age, that is the bare minimum a pup should be taken away from their mom and litter mates. I will never ever let any of mine go before then, and I really prefer them to stay until 12 weeks of age to be honest.

    AGREED… I'm NOT a breeder, but we did have one litter of bully pups w/Bella. There is NO way in HELL I would of scheduled a vacation before those pups went to their forever homes… heck we had trouble scheduling errands at that time because we always wanted to make sure that someone was home at ALL times because of baby Wellie.
