Just some basic information as the time to plan a “puppy pick up“ day draws nearer...
As most of you already know, the pups turn 8 weeks on January 5th. Puppies need to be picked up at sometime during that 8th week. However, if you have owned a Bullmastiff, or some other brachiocephalic breed before, and are knowledgeable about their sensitivity to extreme heat, and cold, joint preventive care, etc...you may make plans to pick up your puppy ( puppies) the weekend before the 5th! That would be Jan. 2, 3, or 4.
So all pups need to be picked up by no later than January 12th. We have a family tradition, now 11years strong, that when the pups leave for their new homes, we immediately take a mini-family vacation, as we’ve been cooped up for 8-9 weeks ;-)
