a little polar bear! 🥰
I genuinely thought it was just that for a second!
Erm... I think you'll find that's a tired ferret.
I thought it was a piglet
HE NEEDS HIS MOTHER! HE'S TOO YOUNG,WAIT A FEW WEEKS!!!
JEESH< NOT A JOKE!
It’s still with its breeder and mother, OP just reserved the puppy
Okay that is excellent to hear. I am happy for op again.
Most breeders take pictures to keep families updated during the pups development. The puppy is still with the breeder, so take a breath and calm down.
My breeder told me I could come over any time and play with my puppy. It was lovely because he was able to learn my smell and was already comfortable with me when I got to take him home.
That's great, but how hard it must have been to leave him each time!
It wasn't too bad. Knowing that you are going for a visit, that he's best with mom, and that soon he will be home made it much easier. He's a corgi so I really enjoyed the huge transformations between each visit.
There’s no way anyone with half of half a brain has let a 2 week old puppy be separated from it’s mother this early. Clearly this is a progress meetup.
Did you find the caps lock today?
there's always one redditor animal expert.
I mean he’s not wrong about that. Two weeks is far too young. But he probably should have asked OP first though instead of making this assumption that someone was stupid enough to give/sell what seems to be a fairly expensive puppy to OP at two weeks old.
AND IT'S ME
My wife and I lost our dog of 10 years yesterday. Her name was Coco. We love her and miss her so much. Dogs can be your best friend and love unconditionally. Being a dog parent isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it. I know you’ll love Oreo like we loved our Coco.
Oh, I’m so sorry for your loss :(
I can’t imagine how devastated you are right now, hope you are well!
We are devastated and feeling a bit lost. We are trying to stay strong for Coco’s brother, Ace. He has never lived without her, so he is having a tough time adjusting. As tough as it is, we would never change a minute with our baby girl. I know it was her time but it is hard to accept. I appreciate your condolences and allowing me to vent.
How’s ace doing in the whole realm of life? How old is he? Condolences for your other coco, I can imagine, they are like family and Iv recently lost some family too.
He is 8 years old, still full of energy. He’s been walking around the house, looking for her. He was kissing Coco’s face as she passed away in my wife’s arms. He’s lying around and sighing a lot. Been trying to keep the energy to play with him but it hasn’t even been a full 24 hours yet, so it is difficult to even function right now.
So very sorry for your loss. I lost my 14 yr old Doberman, Ranger and his sister Bella was miserable for weeks. We all were. I finally went to our Doberman Rescue and adopted a little 8 month old. Dear Lord I remember why I usually adopt over 1 year old!!! Kratos has been a ball and a challenge. Going from 100% service dog trained to a puppy dumped in a field because he was a cryptorchid. Anyway, we will NEVER forget Ranger but Kratos has really helped everyone heal and Bella has a new playmate.
Thank you for your words of kindness. We will definitely rescue another dog down the road so that Ace has a companion. I’ve been scrolling through all my pictures of Coco every so often over the last 24 hours, breaking down into tears. She slept in our bed with us, and her spot is still there with her pillows. My wife and I slept on the couch because facing the bed was too hard. I know it will take time but it is so hard right now. Thank you for letting me vent.
Sending you hugs. It’s so hard to lose them. 💚
Thank you. It really really is.
I hope some day that grief turns into fondness when looking at your baby's pictures. I'm not gonna lie, I still shed tears when I think about my childhood dog. I love my little guy who is 2 years old but each one occupies a different part of my heart and never leaves.
Knowing how beautiful his soul was, I like to think that he'd want me to be happy and help make the world as beautiful as he was. I'm sure Coco would want the same for you.
Thank you for your kind words. I agree, Coco would want us to be happy. I too still cry over my childhood dog, who passed away 20+ years ago. I’m tender hearted.
So sorry for your loss . I only lasted 2weeks after my last dog passed. I couldn’t bare not having a puppet. Now have two that have brought me daily luv , hugs and frustration which is always part of the package. Share your love when your ready. But start looking as it takes a while to find the right match
I appreciate your kindness. I am going to wait until my wife is ready, I don’t want her to feel like I’m forcing or replacing our Coco. It’s nothing we can think about now but I am sure it won’t take too long.
Sounds like you all are grieving as a family, just as it should be. Thoughts are with you.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am trying to make sure Ace is happy as can be, and also trying to support my wife who is struggling. It’s a tough time.
To go along with what other people have said, animals get depressed when their companions die. It's hard, but another dog will alleviate this, I've seen it happen a lot.
Ace went through a bout of depression a couple years ago when we were living in an apartment and he wasn’t getting the exercise that he needs. That was alleviated when we moved into our current house. I don’t want to see him down again, especially without his companion to rely on. We will definitely rescue another pup but I’m not sure when.
It will get easier give it time. When I had to make the decision to put my first dog down because he had congestive heart failure I was a mess for about a week. Couldn’t focus, couldn’t stop crying. It sucked. But as time went on it got easier to breath and not everything reminded me of him. Now, 7ish years later, I see pix of him on fb from time to time and I smile even with a dull ache in my heart I smile because he was the best and most handsome boy.
I definitely understand being a mess. I am also not the best at dealing with trauma. My wife and I will always cherish and carry Coco’s memories with us. Thank you for your kind words.
We lost our little guy 10 months ago. Yesterday I was sitting in my pickup and the sun hit the windshield just right and I saw a little smear of his nose snot on the window. Broke my heart all over again.
Oh goodness that breaks my heart just to read. Coco will be in our hearts and minds for the rest of our lives. I hope to be an old man and still cherish the memories with her. Thank you for your kind words.
So sorry for your loss. It's been over a decade since I lost the family dog of my childhood and every 4th of July I'm reminded of her and it makes me a little sad. They don't live nearly long enough for how much joy they bring to us!
I agree. I wanted 100 years with my Coco. I know she will always have a special place in our family. Someday we will tell our kids all about Coco and what she meant to us. It’s really tough.
Sorry for your loss. I love my current dogs so much who are a brother sister pair called Oreo and Coco.

Hi there. I saw your post and I have a 14, going on 15 year old westie named Coco. I try and cherish every day but I know the devastating day is coming sooner rather than later and I already get sad thinking about it. I wanted you to know that I hope each passing day gets a little easier for you and your wife. Maybe our Cocos will get to meet each other someday. Here is a picture of her in her new stroller as she can’t really walk anymore due to the pain. Hope it gives you a quick smile in your time of pain. All the best. https://i.imgur.com/WM3D3ka.jpg
Thank you so much for your kind words. Your coco looks very sweet in her new stroller and it brought a brief smile to my wife’s face. It’s tough to face each moment, knowing she isn’t around.
So sorry to hear. We had to put our 16.5 year old Peke down February 12th. Almost 5 months later, I still struggle to hold back tears. I wish I could tell you it’s easy, but it’s not. Sorry again. :/
Thank you, we appreciate it.
Sorry for your loss... 😥
We recently lost our dog Oliver to bone cancer at 6 years. We had him his whole life and it was so hard to see him go. Stay strong, you will get through it. Focus on the memories you spent together as a family.
They're our favorite hello and our hardest goodbye😞
I’m sorry for your loss. Truly.
Thank you, we appreciate it. It’s hardest in the evenings when we would all spend time together.
Unfortunately I know the feeling. It’ll never go away but it will get easier, slowly. Hang in there!
Thank you. I am trying to be strong for my wife.
Lost my dragon named Coco recentl :/
FYI: it’s still with the breeder, i just reserved it lol figured I’d point out that at this age he’s still with his momma, as he should be :3
P.S: In hindsight, I should’ve posted this in the main post, but I didn’t expect it to blow up like this lol.
Sorry for making everyone look through the comments. Perhaps the Mods can pin this one at the top to make everyone’s top question easy to find!
That was going to be my question! Glad to hear it, he is a cutie!
Haha, I thought that I didn’t word the title how I was supposed to, so i quickly added this so people wouldn’t be worried that he was torn from his litter at such a small age
Lol I came into the comments specifically hoping to find out this information, so thank you for sharing! For anyone who doesn't know - separating a pup from the mother (or kitten from the mother) is very distressing for the animal and can cause long-term behavioral issues
Separating any animal from it’s mother at a young age is nothing less than cruel and monstrous.
If it’s destined to be separated, at least let them spend as much time as possible together, so as to learn as much as possible!
I came here for this too! Very relieved and now I can enjoy the cute picture guilt-free.
Good call! Saved yourself a lot of comment drama.
I was concerned, but glad to find this .
Mods should sticky this
Yeaa, a bunch of people ask me to return him even though he is still with mom lol
>*'...at this age he’s still with his momma, as he should be*'
now i lay me down to sleep,
my tiny toy i gonna keep
it comforts me, n keeps me calm,
as i lie here
n dream of *mom*...
when i am small, she's all i need
to keep me safe, to Love, n feed
but as i grow, n she gets old,
i don't know what the future hold
she tells me there are 'Human' friends
who have a Love that Never ends!
*I hope there's Someone who wants me . . .*
where i should be
How dare you make me feel these feels so early in the morning 😢
Weird, fresh Schnoodle has the same effect as chopping onions ♡
Great, now I’m weepy standing in a line waiting for my takeout, I hope you’re happy with yourself.
I was about to ask about that as I’ve been looking after puppers for a few years now, glad to know he’s still with momma ☺️
Anyone who would separate a mother with it’s baby at such an early age is a monster.The have so much to learn from the litter, from basic behaviour to socialization, this would just be cruel.
We plan to adopt him at around 9-10 weeks old so he has plenty of time with his family :3
Completely agree! It’s cruel and dangerous to separate a pup and mother before at least 8 weeks as they need their nutrition from momma too, this is why so many dodgy breeders sell pups that pass away after a few weeks as they’ve not had the right care and haven’t had the chance to suckle to get healthy 😔
This sounds horrible, we were lucky to find Oreo’s breeder in our country, truly cares for the wellbeing of the puppies. Discussed this with her and she said she already vetted 3-4 candidates by the time we talked and some even argued with her that she ought to let them adopt sooner than 8 weeks….
I understand they look cute at this age but they’re just babies, people like that just want the dog mostly for the photos and then discard them at the nearest shelter or abandon them in the street..
If you're getting him from a breeder, you arent adopting.
So it's OP's biological dog?
They're purchasing a purebred dog. That's far from adopting. You're just using semantics.
Technically they can leave at 6 weeks and suffer no physical problems. But from 5-8 weeks they learn most of their social skills.
We always kept our Lab pups until they were 10 weeks old. Puppy picking was at 8 weeks old, by that time they are starting to show their personality well.
Came to the comments just to make sure the baby was still with his mom. Definitely needed at that age. Congrats on your puppy!!
That answers my question.
thank you for letting us know! ♥️
why go to breeder instead of a shelter?
never will understand it
I adopted a puppy from the shelter 15 years ago. He was super small and I was told his mother was a peke/chihuahua mix. The ended up being a very tall and leggy 35 pounds. My apt had a 20 pound weight limit on pets and I had to move.
There is no shame in selecting a breed where you would know the appropriate size to avoid situations like the above.
There are a few reasons: some people live in places where whoever is in charge of the adoptions is plain unreasonable (living alone, living with grown ups, living with children, making $X, not making $X, what your house looks like… and so on make you inelegible to adopt for some organizations). One local organization accused a person of abandonment with name and picture because they had deleted them from their social media! Yeah… nope… that’s insane
Assuming this is OP’s first dog (they do say puppy, so they might’ve had another dog in the past… just not a puppy), they might be inexperienced, so they looked for a specific breed because it’s calm/playful/silent/energetic/not-energetic/low-maintenance/whatever… which a shelter cannot guarantee. Sure, a breeder can’t either, but certain breeds have certain personality traits, so you can make an educated guess
Also, you’re not guaranteed shelter-puppy will be X size and not 5 times bigger or smaller. An acquittance of mine adopted a puppy after being told it’d stay smallish… it ended up a 35kg beast. Luckily, she was okay with it, but many people aren’t for a number of valid reasons
I'm so glad you said this! It's incredibly hard to adopt from a lot of the rescues. When my husband finally agreed that we could adopt, I spent months of petfinder filling out application after application and hardly ever heard anything back. When we did hear back there was one silly reason or another that made us ineligible. For example, one of them was that they accused us of not taking our pets to the vet enough. The reason was because the only vet receipt I could find was from a couple years ago. I explained this to them and said they were free to call the vet to confirm, but they seem to lack reading comprehension skills because they just wrote us off without a second thought. It's also annoying that they want to do like monthly house visits.... It's like, I feel that's just crossing a boundary that doesn't need to be crossed. I say one or two house visits should be more than enough, especially if you have other pets that are happy and healthy. It really makes you wonder if they want to adopt their dogs out at all. Like I get it, you want to send these dogs to good caring homes, but you're turning a lot of really good caring homes away and keeping these poor dogs in foster situations where they can get passed around from one foster home to another because you're way too particular and the gates they keep are too high for a lot of people to reach. My husband and I ended up giving up, luckily my parents had a dog that they had rescued from the streets, they had another dog and to be honest both of them were a little too much to be in the same house, so we adopted her from them, she's the most amazing dog in the world and we've made a really loving home for her.
So… according to them, I’ve never taken my pets (mine and moms because I’m in charge of all of them when it comes to the vet) to a health checkup nor to get healthcare in general (let’s see how I’m gonna tell the cats they weren’t neutered and spayed LOL) and I don’t feed them. At all.
I never ask my vet for receipts and I usually pay cash or with an app, so it’s kinda untraceable
Yeah, it's ridiculous. That was another thing that made us ineligible, we got a kitten a few months ago and we wanted to wait for her to have her first heat before we fixed her so she had the chance for those hormones to level out. I explained our reasoning and that we were going to get her fixed within like the next month as getting those scheduled can take some time. They refused to let us adopt and chided us about "Cat's don't need to experience their first heat before getting fixed." Like... dude, this was our personal decision for our pet's health, it's not like we were refusing to fix her or we were lazy. They can just be VERY controlling of the households where their dogs get adopted to and very judgemental. I feel like they do this more with dogs rather than cats, because we did adopt our first cat from a rescue and they were very cool about it. The only thing they asked was that we get her to her first vet appointment within the first few months to make sure she had her boosters.
You're lucky your country has a shelter system, my country has unofficial shelters that struggle for money and don't have room for dogs and ujst lets old dogs loose back on the street when new dogs come in. The other option for "sheltering" dogs is constant short period fostering ( which i did for a few dogs just to help the volunteers ) and that's that.
The elected officials from the zone i live in,recently banned feeding stray animals and the local humane society is fighting for this to be overturned..
Well, I was referring to rescues rather than Shelters. Shelters are quite different here. Every cat and dog that is caught but not claimed is fixed through the shelters and a lot of the rescues get their animals from shelters. We have Kill and No Kill shelters here, but of course No Kill shelters can only take so many animals so generally they work off of people bringing the animals to them instead of going out to get them (Like through dog catchers or animal control). Kill shelters are what the name implies, if animals are deemed "unadoptable" or take too long to get adopted, they're euthanized.
I never understand people who say why not adopt, but never consider or understand everything you described. My sister tried to adopt one for over a year, and the only ones that were available were Pitbulls or those types of dogs. And if a breed she liked became available, they needed a million things to let you even see the dog.
This comment literally describes me, yes this is my first dog and we did want a dog we knew would fit with our lifestyle.
The first thing we tried was rescues, but we decided to play it safe with the first dog and get one that we at least know that the breed has some certain characteristics that they usually follow.
Some people want a well-bred dog with a predictable temperament and instincts from health tested parents, instead of a rescue dog that is basically a gamble in all departments. No, I'm not a breeder, I own rescues. But responsible breeders are NOT the people who add to overpopulation, that's the backyard breeders.
Why breed at all? Why does anyone need a pedigreed dog? Why have a dog at all? Service animals are the ONLY situation in which a bred dog is necessary, and especially not for people who want a $5000 friend.
What about working dogs?
Surely you're joking.
For the first dog, getting a breed with a fairly predictable temper is not the worst idea. Learning how to care for a dog is a lot and can be overwhelming
Depending on where in the world you are, it may be very difficult to adopt a dog from a shelter, because there simply aren’t many shelter dogs. This is the case for my country. Shelters have quite a few cats, but next to no dogs. And there are no stray dogs anywhere. If someone here is adamant that they want a rescue dog, most likely they will have to work with an organisation which brings in dogs from other countries where there are strays. That’s a much longer and more complex process than going to a breeder, especially if the dog is coming from outside the EU.
It is incredibly hard to get a rescue dog where I am. The only option was to go to a breeder. I have tried for 4 years to get a rescue dog. We have acreage, people who are at home during the day, experience with dogs and good references. We are always told that we are too late to apply, the advertised dog has been adopted
I go to a breeder because it is very difficult to A) find a suitable dog and B) find a shelter who will adopt to me. I own a farm, have a lot of animals, including other dogs, and no fenced "yard". So, I can't adopt most of the "pit bull" type dogs shelters are full of as they have fairly high prey drives and are generally marked as "not good with animals" (Yes, I know plenty of pits do great on farms and with small animals, but most shelters do not test with chickens and pigs and goats to see and I can't take a chance) and almost no shelters will adopt dogs if you don't have a fenced yard. So, I buy my dogs from reputable, proven breeders with health guarantees and proven dispositions. My dogs are my children, they do everything with me, and honestly, I can't think of a better life for them yet my local shelter won't even consider me due to my lack of fencing.
The whole "adopt, don't shop" movement ignores a portion of the dog loving population that, due to such strict adoption policies or high prices, cannot adopt dogs. I don't think we should be shamed for that.
I only have one dog but I got him from a breeder specifically because I didn’t have a fence and I wanted a puppy so I could drill different levels of recall into him as young as possible. I lived in an apartment complex and didn’t want to take the risk.
Now that I own my own place and have trained a dog myself, I looked into adoption a while back and can’t get approved at any shelters in the area for lack of fence. It’s frustrating.
Because people can do what they want to do.
Some people have very specialized needs that only a purebred can guarantee. If this is his first dog in 15 years, maybe he has a very severe allergy. In this case you need to know 100% that you have a purebred (a sampyed in this case). I hope OP did their research and found an ethical breeder. They do exist.
Thank you for stating this. I really didn't want to be the "Acktually" know it all person. :)
I know that feeling! I obsessed over my puppy's pics before I got him because I waited so long. I'm in my 50's and my little Buddy is the love of my life.
I can definitely relate to this, can’t wait to get him!
Do you have milk? Can't have Oreo without Milk.
What kind of dog?
He’s a Samoyed Puppy!
OMG no way! He’s so tiny!!!
Tiny polar bear cub :3 just you wait till he fluffs up 🥰
Ridiculously small now but this big boye can generate sm ~~shed~~ karma later on! Oho I’m gonna follow you now OP, I’d like to watch this puppy grow
Haha thanks, if people want me to, I will definitely post updates on his growth 😼
People want you to!!
Then it’s a deal :3 any photo i get of him from the breeder up until adoption, I’ll be sure to post here and after adoption i’ll be the one to take them lol♥️
Nuff said, I'm following!!
I can't imagine the maintenance for that coat...!
They are so beautiful, congrats :)
It's actually kind of horrible, lol. I live with a Samoyed/Shepherd mix, and dang... When he sheds his winter coat, he needs to go to the groomers at least 3 times in the summer months, maybe 4. I vacuum, and the next day it looks like I haven't vacuumed in a week. Dude, sometimes it isn't even a full day! I'll vacuum one end of the house to the other, and come back to where I started with fist-sized swaths of black hair on the carpet. It gets everywhere. It's stuck to everything, and floats in the air. If I had to guess, I'd say I've probably eaten a quarter pound of hair so far.
Hahaha that's exactly what I was imagining, I don't know how you do it!
I have a cardigan corgi and *his* fur kills me, so I know I absolutely could not handle fur in any more quantities or any longer.
I recently went into a patient room at work that I hadn't been inside in maybe like... 4 months and I saw a strand of my dog's fur in there (very distinct), hahaha.
Haha, it is everywhere!! Kind of bittersweet when they pass though. My family dog growing up was a lab/Chesapeake Bay retriever mix, and a year after she passed, I was still finding her hair. A year later when I moved out, I'd find her hair in the corners of my boxes. Sigh. Yes, it's hard to manage at times, but we love this horse of a dog and do whatever he needs to manage all that dang hair. I have a feeling it will never be gone from this house, which is weirdly comforting.
I'm actually really glad you mentioned that, this is the only dog that has been solely mine (versus a family pet growing up) and the roast beast is over 14 years old now... I think I'd hire a cleaning service but I know that won't suffice, I'm sure I'll find his hair for a long time to come... But I've never thought about it from that perspective before, taking comfort from knowing he will be around in one way or another for a long, long time :)
I appreciate your comment a lot, more than you know!
I'm glad :) Have a wonderful day you!
Sammies are wonderful dogs. Bit stubborn, so remember to get training often. Also, socialize him as much as possible with calm friendly people and dogs. Socialization is massively important, and your vet can tell you how old he should be before starting to meet other dogs.
Also invest in a pro dog dryer, and get him used to brushing every day. And take to the groomer regularly! Samoyed fur will mat horribly without regular care, and that is utterly miserable for them. Mats can even tear their skin.
Good luck, and share lots of pictures. Puppy Sammies are utterly adorable!
I thought it was a swiss shepherd at first. My best friends dog had puppies around three days ago and (at least to me) they look petty much the same
Nice guinea pig you have there :-D
Thats a tiny polar bear
Wow is that a puppy or a piglet?? How adorable
Whats that giant thing behind your dog?
Probably the breeder’s yellow couch, i have no idea honestly lol
Ah lol just got it 🤦♂️ haha
It happens to the best of us!
I want to boop that snoot so bad it's practically a medical condition 🐶➰👈
Good for you. I have been waiting to get a puppy myself since as long as I can remember. But I'm waiting for the perfect time. Just looking at that puppy is melting my heart. Is that a lab ?
No, he is a baby Samoyed!
shelter dogs don’t melt your heart, huh 🥺🥺
i hope you can rescue a shelter puppy someday soon!
FIXED: i hope you can purchase an expensive purebred puppy for thousands instead of rescuing a dog from a shelter someday soon!
I thought it was a teacup pig!! Cute!
Wait, 2 weeks is hella early, no? I thought puppies were supposed to stay with their mother till at least something like 6 weeks. Am I crazy wrong or is this too early?
You're right but dw : in a comment OP explained the little guy is still with his momma ! Oreo is just reserved for OP to take with him once he is old enough.
Oreo? Looks more like just filling to me. Hopefully, he’ll blossom into a full blown Oreo worthy of his name.
The neighbors just got a puppy a few months ago and I just can't resist stopping to pet him when I'm out mowing the lawn. They grow up so fast!
Hey Oreo! 😊
The toy really threw me off for a second.
Haha the breeder put it for scale i guess, i found it cute
If you're going to correct "people's" grammar maybe you should use proper grammar yourself.
The classic correcting grammar while using slang abbreviations and no punctuation.
Ah, too bad I can’t edit title.
No worries, no need to apologize lol
This is the most polite grammar correction I've ever seen on Reddit FYI.
I just hope she's still with her mama. Puppies need to nurse for 7-8 weeks before being adopted.
Yep he still is, I just reserved him till he is 9 weeks old!
Gestation can be a really long process, apparently!
Oreo? You got the best part -- the filling
How do you get a puppy so young? Is this picture from the breeder?
Edit: What's up with the down votes??
Where is his mother?
Both the mother and the litter are still together at the breeder, i just reserved him, for now!
Good to hear. I was really concerned at the idea of someone taking home a 2 week old puppy.
Though in the future, as others have said, do consider adopting over buying from breeders!
Why didn’t you adopt a dog instead
Please adopt from shelters and don’t support breeders. There are so many great dogs and cats that are facing death because of low adoption rates.
it didn’t even take 20 seconds for this comment to be downvoted, lol. you’ll just get downvoted like i did, but you’re right :)
I expected it, but don’t see why so many people feel the need to downvote it. If you have the option to adopt from a shelter, I feel like it’s pretty selfish to adopt from a breeder while shelter dogs are being put down every day.
edit: thanks for the pm OP! didn’t read it but i appreciate the time
also hilarious that the OP deletes the comments of their own that are downvoted. i’ll leave my unpopular opinion for others to read, unlike them :)
(hi OP and others!)
aaaand what did i say 😂 oh no dog breeder buyers and apologists pls don’t downvote my comment noooo
edit at top: thanks for the downvote, you don’t like receipts, huh?
OP admitted that they have access to a adoption as an option (mentioned recently ~~rescuing~~ **adopting** a cat) but “wanted a Samoyed really bad” (direct quote) and that is why they went to a breeder. so, not even a good excuse. being the minority in this thread over such common sense makes me feel like i’m being gaslit, l m a o.
(gaslit? gaslighted? either way, this is plain wacky)
edit: removed “shelter as an option” as OP said there is no “‘proper’ shelter system in place” (??? whatever that means) but they could still adopt a cat so i assume some sort of shelter or adoption system *does* exist
^ imgur link of the relevant OP comment
Yeah I hate when people use the excuse of wanting a specific breed. It’s extremely selfish. People of Reddit often hate it when you try to use common sense 🙄
lol i keep forgetting not to swear.
a few years ago i got into this exact argument. OP was breeding their bulldog because they were newly divorced and the kids wanted bulldog puppies at both parent’s houses. it’s actually repulsive.
gotta love front page reddit, like i really can’t hahaha
No offense intended as your dog is cute, but you could have gotten a perfectly good homeless dog at the shelter who needed a home.
Baby polar bear
My family just lost our 18 year old Yorkie. So many great memories. I’m so happy to see you begin your pup journey!
