"Why is puppy #2 available? If the puppy has been with the breeder should have gotten a lot more training and be more expensive. I personally would always pick an 8 week old. You don't get to have little puppies often in your life and yes it…"

"I think though that I would ask the breeder about their temperments ... I wouldn't tell her what I was looking for and then let her decide.  I would want her thoughts upfront.  A breeder with a 14 week old pup and an 8 week old pup,…"

"Thank you, Stacy! That's not silly! Very helpful to know! I have hardwood and tile floors too that I sweep/mop and don't vacuum that much... hadn't even thought about that!"

Stacy replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"It's silly stuff, really. I wish that I had vacuumed more. I had hardwood floors in that house and did a lot of sweeping, but now that I have carpet she thinks that the vacuum is evil and she needs to destroy it. She also thinks that the new…"

"Great question! I should have mentioned that. Yes, the breeder wanted to keep the older one but changed her mind, not because of anything bad. She said she doesn't want to bite off more than she can chew and it was a really hard decision to…"

"Good point! I, unfortunately, live too far away so I won't get to see her in person, but we will be Face Timing and video chatting so I can get a good look at them both. Thanks!"

"I live on the west coast, and my puppy is on the east coast!! I've been asking for lots of videos so I can watch them both. Both puppies are girls. Thanks for the tip!"

Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"As Jane suggested, look at temperament as which to choose.  A puppy that is a bit older might be a bit easier. That is what we chose when we got Ned. His little system was more developed. He was more independent and ready to leave the…"

Laurie, Wally & Charlotte replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"Do you know why the older puppy is available? Was there some reason why it was not purchased with its littermates or was it returned or was the breeder considering keeping it and changed her mind? Before I would consider taking the 14-week pup,…"

Jane, Guinness and Murphy replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"I really think temperament is even more important than age.  I would explain to the Breeder what you're looking for in terms of temperament and ask which of the puppies fits that "profile" more closely.  Some people are…"

J & Luna replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"I agree with wanting an 8-9 week old puppy.  Even with a great breeder they aren't going to take a small army of puppies out into the world too much because it just isn't practical.   From that article, this part sticks out…"

Sue Ryzdynski replied to Maya B.'s discussion Choosing a Puppy (part 2) Age differences?
"I do not think you should worry.  Let the puppy decide, if you can get the breeder to present them at the same time.  Second option would be go with the older one, you can observe more of the personality.  If those options arn'y…"

I'm going with the third choice-- a very experienced breeder who raises great puppies in her home with lots of early stimulation, socialization, health-testing, the works!!!But now there are two puppies that have become available from this same breeder, one that will be 8 weeks old when I…See More
