Hi all, I posted few weeks ago asking for information regarding breeders in Georgia (my screen name was different then...I forgot that a/c password, so had to open a new a/c). We met the breeder and the mom and dad back in December and the puppies were born the very next day. Now they are 5 weeks old and we went to see them today. We wanted a boy and since the litter had 4 girls and one boy, we kind of thought he would be the one. When we went to meet them, he was the first one to walk up to us and licked/smelled my fingers and came to me. He was wagging his tail for whole hour we were there. But when the breeder came and joined, he did not want to stay with me and wanted to be with her. Is this a good thing ?
And also I noticed the minute she called him he turned and came to her...but wouldn't do that for me...I guess this is because I'm still a stranger for him? we stayed for about an hour and towards the end he did sit with me even though the breeder was in the room. Would it be a good idea to keep meeting him in the next 6-7 weeks before we get him home for us to get used to each other? The breeder is very nice and gave me all the information like supply list, his habits etc., he is the only boy and he is the biggest of all. Oh, BTW...he is black and white like an Oreo...so my boys decided to name him Odieo hence the new screen name! I do have pictures will post them soon...
I think he sounds great. He has just gotten used to the breeder but he was also very friendly to you. Maddie followed her breeder everywhere too. She then followed me everywhere. How exciting and I love his name. It would be fun to go visit more just to be able to see him.
welcome to the forum , I bet you're excited. Totally normal. so long as he approached you it shows he's not timid. Get some pictures.
