First off, Stella is adorable.
I actually planned to have my pup at 12 weeks and his breeder wouldn't let him go earlier. I had my son's baptism at the time he was due home so we postponed for a week or two. I feel it really made a difference. He slept all night in his crate right from the start. He was house trained very quickly because the breeder trained him and so did her older dogs. He was better socialised. He isn't frightened by fireworks or any noises either. You see once they come home, you have to keep them a bit isolated while you wait for vaccines. They miss out on so much.
I also find Dylan has nice doggy manners. He must greet nicely as often people comment their dog doesn't like other dogs much yet they are so happy to see Dylan. Lots of big dogs come down to his level. I've met a lady whose rescue dog didn't like to play instantly do a play bow.
