Getting new puppy in 4 days!

Hello everyone. I have been on this forum reading posts for awhile now. Me and my husband are getting a 10wk old hav (stanley) on Sat. Pretty excited. Wanted some opinions and advice though on something. When our pup was 7.5 wks old he lost his mother in a fire that happened at the breeders. Devastating...we loved the mother very much. So our pups have had their litter mates but nit their mom since 7.5 wks. Breeder said should;t be of consequence as he was weened already and as long as he is still with his litter mate all should be okay. Anyway I hope it will be and I'm sure i will be posting more in the months to come.

As horrible as it was that his mom died in the fire, from a developmental standpoint, I think he should be fine. Many puppies go to their forever homes by 8 weeks, so he wasn't far off the mark. Just make sure that you continue to work on socialization with him A LOT, with both people (including small children!!!) and other (safe, friendly) dogs of all shapes and sizes. But this is stuff you'd want to do with ANY puppy anyway!

Oh what a sad thing to happen. That poor mama. I imagine your breeder was devastated as well. As for the puppy (Stanley), he should be fine. Good luck with him. Look forward to hearing more.

Welcome, I'm sure you can't wait. Stanley is an awesome name, I love it.

It's very sad about his mom, you'll just have to give him extra love!

I cannot wait to see your puppy. I'm sure he will adjust quickly to his new surroundings.

We got our Lola this past Saturday and she's an absolute doll!

I'm certain the love you'll give Stanley will be exactly what he needs right now.

Thank you all for you messages. Yes our breeder is devastated, and does not think she will breed any longer as she lost 3 of her dogs in the fire. It will be very emotional picking him up. I will be posting pictures and keeping an eye on the forum as this is our first puppy experience, and will need lots of tips. Thanks all, take care
