So...nobody can tell ANYONE on Facebook or mention it on facebook...and especially NOT on my facebook page... BUT We made a deposit on a German Shepherd puppy!!! He'll be coming home next Friday! A little young (7 weeks) but since we are fairly familiar with the breed and have a "pack" of dogs here at the house to help it learn to behave, the pup shouldn't have a problem with manners. I am thinking we should feed milk replacer with its food. Is that a bad call? Should we just switch over to the wet food and then graduate to the dry food? My Shih Tzu was easy...and this go-around, my husband...neurotic! lol! Thanks for any help and advice! UPDATE: Apparently I misunderstood the breeder. We had been there this last Friday. He meant that the puppies were 7 weeks THIS Friday (the Friday we went to see them), not 7 weeks next Friday. Sorry for the misunderstanding everyone!
