Bob is getting a new PUPPY!! Pictures included of 6 week old puppy, I take him home at 9 weeks.

Posted on 01/24/2007 3:42:37 PM PST by word_warrior_bob

Jakey is getting a baby brother! Feel free to give me name ideas, pure bred Standard Poodle, champion bloodlines, I got him here, http://www.parrishill.com/

I read you shouldn't take the biggest or smallest of the litter, but I also read how to "test" a puppy. Even though he's the smallest puppy he was relaxed when I held him, relaxed when I put him in the cruk of my arm and looked me in the eyes for a long time. He was alert and looked when I clapped and he was the only one who cocked his head to say "what" when I talked to him. He held his own with the other puppies without being too rambunctous. He allowed me to hold him out with no other support and didn't squirm and looked me in the eyes, he allowed me to put him on his back and played and swatted at my fingers. He did all the right things you want from a puppy except he was the "runt" of the litter. I was assured that there should only be a difference in height of all the puppies of about 2 inches anyway. I'll post more pictures when I get him in 3 weeks, in the interm I will visit and handle him as much as possible so that the move is less stressful for him. On to the pictures!

He's 6 weeks, after 9 weeks I get to take him home, I'll be visiting and holding/playing with him in between so he knows me.

Fuzzy Face. That was my dog's name.

Ok his real name was Carl Friedrich Anton von Weber but I couldn't quite manage to wrap my brain around hanging that long name on such a cute scrap of fluff even if he was of champion bloodlines. So Fuzzy Face he was to his dying day.

Very cute! How about Elwood for a name? You know Jake and Elwood.
At Halloween you could put dark glasses and little black hats on them. ;~D

That's a great idea! I was also thinking about Chip, because when I get another puppy he can be Dale.

Why is it that these pictures are easier on the eye than looking at US politicians? Is it perhaps that these pups do not threaten our national welfare as the guys and gals in the Capitol do?

Question......I have always been told by "dog" people that you should take the puppy home (away from mom and the pack) at 7 weeks. Long enough to learn some social skills, but long enough for the pups to develop a pecking order and anti-social behavior.

Why 9 weeks?

Thanks.

Congats on the new pup!

I read you shouldn't take the biggest or smallest of the litter

I don't really buy into that. A friend of mine had a Brittany Spaniel who was the "runt" of its litter and it was one of the nicest, well-behaved dogs I've ever met. The best advice I can give you for bringing a new dog into the home is to make special time exclusively for give Jake attention. This will ease the transition.

Oh what a sweet puppy. You went through all the right steps in determining that you got the best one - runt or not. I know you are excited about bringing him to his new family.

We have a Bichon who was the runt and never had a smarter sweeter dog.

I want to take them all! I am such a sucker for baby animals. Not in Houston and can't have a dog. :-( I pray they find their way to loving homes who will spoil them like mad. :-D

AWWW what a cutie! I'd love to have a dog but we just don't have the yard for one right now (renting a townhome) Nothing like the puppy breath and chewing on the fingers. As for a name, I agree with the other posters that suggested Elwood.

Best wishes to you and yours!

Congratulations Bob, what an adorable puppy!

For no particular reason, I always liked the name Jake for a dog, prolly not a good name for a poodle, though!

Why 9 weeks?

_____

Most of what I've read is between 9 and 12 weeks, gives them enough time for social interaction with the other pups and enough time for various tests, shots, etc.

You can also take one from a breeder that's been there longer too, you have a much better gauge on what their personality is, if it's a good breeder you will probably get a well adjusted, social dog.

Steady, brave eyes.

That's a good 'un. I like the white color the best too.

I took the runt of the litter. She's still undersized at 5 years - only 43 pounds. Took her to a hunt test in October, there were 200 dogs entered and any of the Labs present could have given her 15-20 pounds. One of the judges watched her bounding through the high grass like a Springer to keep her eye on the duck and said, "Aw, isn't she a cute little thing!" But it certainly hasn't stopped her from being a DARNED good dog . . . she passed both days, I looked at the results and of 28 dogs in Junior, only 20 passed on Saturday and 17 on Sunday, it was a TOUGH test.

Have you thought about training this one for hunt tests?
