I get to be an official member Saturday!
The breeder is flying down with our little male Havanese puppy on Saturday! We're all very excited, but also a little nervous, because I have always had larger dogs, and this is my first small dog.
I think we have everything ready. The puppy has a safe place to live, food to eat, water to drink, toys and treats, and a harness and leash.
I'm not sure what to think about our backyard. Obviously a 9 week old puppy is too young to just go out in the yard alone. But what about when he is an adult? We have a fully fenced acre (wrought iron in front, chain link on the sides, and privacy in the back) in the Texas Hill Country. So, we have snakes, lizards, scorpions, hawks, etc. Do you think an adult dog would be safe in a yard like this? I don't worry about our German Shepherd out there, but a Havanese is so small. Am I being too paranoid?
