    FYI to anyone reading this:

    Puppies should stay with the mom and littermates until the 49th day minimum. This is the beginning of the 7th week. During week 6 puppies need to learn important socialization behaviors, including bite inhibition, normal greeting behaviors, and normal sexual behaviors from their littermates.

    Puppies removed from their litters before the 49th day can have long term issues with biting, dog aggression, and inappropriate sexual behaviors.

    Smaller breeds in particular benefit from staying together with their litters for 8 to 10 weeks before being placed in their new homes.

    +3. Plus, many states make it mandatory for pups and kittens to be at least 8 weeks old before being sold.

    +4 It must be rather frightening for a puppy when he/she is first isolated away from mom and litter-mates.

    I cannot BELIEVE I forgot to add that early removal often also contributes greatly to HOUSE TRAINING ISSUES.

    Keep puppies together until at least 7 weeks!

    the law is 8 weeks in Fl and they need to stay with littermates that long...lots of critical learning takes place in that time frame...
