LOL, Dave.

Dave always has the best information.


I also think every puppy buyer should read at least 1 "getting a new puppy" book. This way you will know what to expect and what to get. Little things you don't think of will be discussed like, puppies can chew on electrical cords and can die.



Good luck!!!

The things I had to go back for in the first week because I didn't know I'd need them were chew sticks, nail clippers, and a good pin brush. I was also surprised how many little toys they actually do play with.

Vets are neutering males before six months more and more. We did ours at five months (actually today).

^ agree. When I got him as a pup, I always felt it was my job to keep Henry safe first, then happy.

Congrats on the new pup.
