Since you have a choice, you might want to reconsider and ask the breeder to keep her until 10-12 weeks. The extra time is not because one doesn't think one can handle a young pup, it's because it's an important stage for the pup to stay with their mother and siblings for mental growth and learning. Pups learn a lot from their mother and siblings during those later weeks. Here's a great thread that explains more in depth:I ask this because I just found out that Izzy will be 8 weeks 5 days when I get her!
She was born on the 29th 11th 2010
I will be getting her on 29th 1st 2010
I have had much younger pups (1 weeks old rescue)
So I know I can handle a young one.
My breeder does not normally let pups go until about 10-12 weeks depending
on the individual pup, but she is happy to let me have her at 8-9 weeks because she knows I can handle it.
