Sis was 12 wks when she came home. We had been visiting since she was 4 weeks old. I could see the progression in her as far as size, temperment and eating went. I seriously think she could of come home at 10 weeks or so because she really was the "independant" one of the litter. She played well alone and did not show any social problems, ie; biting, aggression etc, at the time. The "breeder" (hobby breeder) insisted on keeping her until 12 weeks because "that is what my Vet recommended".......I understand the theory of learning "puppy manners", but frankly, we have had some of those "puppy" issues, biting etc anyway!! I would of loved to have had her at 10 weeks and feel sometimes that I really missed that "puppy stage". She was DARNED independant when she came to us, she rarely cuddles (maybe it's because she is STILL a puppy), but often feel she would of been more "loving" had we gotten her sooner. She's crazy about being with us in the same room, but won't sleep in our laps or anything like that. She gives kisses and just turns herself inside out when I come home from work, you can see she just loves us, but NO cuddles.....
I am glad your Vets wife is keeping her...it'll be better for both of you.....
How old is Sis?
Sisse is 5 months, she's due for spay the end of May....I hope your right. Don't get me wrong, we just love her to death, but she is one independant little girl!!
