How old should a pup be when I bring it home?

Old Enough to Go Home

If you are purchasing a purebred puppy from a breeder, you should purchase a puppy that is between eight to twelve weeks old. A puppy should not be separated from her mother before eight weeks of age. If you are adopting a canine from an animal shelter or rescue group, any age you are comfortable with should be fine.
