Harry came home at 11 weeks. The lady who sold him said I could take him at 7-8 weeks after first shot. However I said I'd prefer to take him after the second shot. I sensed she wanted him to go sooner as he came from a litter of seven so she had her hands full a bit. however she agreed to my request as I pointed out if he came home too early and not be allowed out, then it be hard on both of us.
I picked him out at about 5 weeks old and she welcomed me to visit on a regular basis before taking him home. Plus asked me to set his name quickly so she could start using it. That was great as when he came home he knew his name.
11 weeks worked well for me. Plus I liked the fact he had time with other dogs, parents and siblings so more well adjusted. As a slightly dominant male needed him to be in the company of other dogs.
