Look at him now. He LIVES for my son.

There is no way that dog could love the child any more. We had a pup we got from a breeder. My son tried to work with her. He went to lessons with her. He loved her.. but they just didn't bond.

It has nothing to do with when you get your dog. It has more to do with how well your dog fits into your family. And in many cases its easier to know how well a dog will fit if he's a bit older.
Dekka thats so beautiful.

You didn't even read the thread...I'm starting to wonder about your quick, shallow answers that seem designed to just boost your post count. I can't figure out why, since you don't earn any bonus points or anything for doing so...
