Smile New Member Bringing Home First Puppy

I joined the forum last week after searching the internet for information on Havanese. Of course, there aren't a whole lot of resources out there, so I was thrilled when I came across this forum!

A little introduction about me...
I got married last June and my husband, Jonathan, and I are starting our family with a Havanese puppy. I currently work part time as an interior designer (full time jobs are difficult to find with the times) and my husband is a minister. We both have flexible schedules, which I'm hoping will make training easier! We live in North Carolina, which I'm still adjusting to (we're originally from Georgia).

My husband and I are picking up our puppy on Monday! His name is Owen and he'll be 8 weeks on Saturday. We puppy-proofed the apartment already and have everything set up for him to get here!

I've been reading through the forums and soaking up advice, but if anyone has any specific advice to offer, I'd appreciate it! The pictures I have are from when we visited him at the breeder at 6 weeks of age.

Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free

God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
Romans 5:8-11

Aw, he's precious! Welcome!

If you do some searches for new puppies you'll find a ton of threads to read.

Welcome and congrats. Our Molly had some peach coloring when we got her. What a cutie. I would like to recommend a little article for you and I know you will be flooded with being new and all. But check this out. Not sure if this is your first dog but it is a good article anyway.

Welcome to the forum, Jeannine! Your Owen looks like a real cutie - I love his coloring. We will be looking forward to some pictures once he gets home. Where in GA did you live?

Welcome to the Forum, and Owen is adorable.
My only concern is that his breeder is letting him go home so young!! 8 1/2 weeks is very very young for a puppy to be leaving his littermates and momma- it's too bad the breeder won't hold onto him for a couple more weeks for you. I think it would def be an easier transition for Owen if he were a bit older!

Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
