    Shelter dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. Do not pity a shelter dog. Adopt one.

    She's very sweet.

    Just feel it should be mentioned that in the UK, it is actually illegal for a licensed dog breeder to sell a puppy under eight weeks of age (see http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/item/397). Show breeders would usually home at a bit older, 9-12 weeks or so for cavaliers but generally at least 8 weeks. I'm not sure if you were working with someone who is licensed though?

    As she is still quite young, it would be helpful for her to mix with gentle adult dogs and/or other puppies so that she gets very good socialising with other dogs. When they are removed from mother and siblings this young, they are at the borderline for having some socialising problems as adults if they don't meet other dogs. Though the other problem is that they are still without any immunity as they have only started the puppy vax series and should not be walked or socialised outside the home til 10-14 days after the last jab of the series. Is there another dog in the house perhaps for her to play with and learn from?

    Hi thank you, she was not from a licensed breeder. She is living with a labrador and we are here all day everyday.
