I realize your column is usually just for dogs, but
I have a question I hope you can help me with. Iím planning on adopting a
Dachshund puppy and was wondering what age should the puppy be when I bring
him or her home?
Wanting a puppy
Dear Wanting a puppy:
I am happy to take questions from humans too, thank you
for asking. The ideal age to adopt a puppy is between eight and twelve
weeks old. The puppy should be completely weaned and used to being
away from his mother.
