Justa - I hope I didn't seem like a nag on the 8 week thing - just thinking about the pup. I realize you may have no control over this.

I do want to say that with our first boxer who recently passed, we always lived in apartments without a yard (including a 580 sq ft place in NYC for a year!) and it is totally doable. The first few months will probably be the hardest but so worth it! Our pups are the same age and this is our first baby (our last we adopted at 6 months), so I'm sure we'll be learning a lot of things at the same time. Here...we....go!!!!

Picking her up in one week. So so excited . The breeder sent us a photo of her today at 6 weeks and 3 days. She looks so much different from her pictures last week. Her room is all set up and ready to go. Will take any advice and secrets to raising a great boxer. Just recently decided on a food to wean her onto once she gets home. We deceided to go with Blue buffalo grain-free, hopefully everything will go great.

BB grainfree sounds like a great choice! We can't see the pictures promise us that as soon as you bring her home you'll post tons of pics

HI there, congrats on your new pup!!! I know the wait is crazy!! I am a dog trainer and thought I would throw in my 2 cents First of all developmentally, pups need to socialize a LOT!!! The concern is always the vaccines. We generally suggest that you socialize them with pups, dogs, children and adults you know!! This not only for health issues, but we don't want to scare young pups with bad experiences either.

7 weeks is young... I know its hard on the mom, but they learn so much that last week from their litter mates.

This forum is awesome.. I am new here and so far its been great!! Good luck with your pup.. cant wait to see more pics

My pup is 6 months now, and he's been on Taste of the Wild. If you have a Tractor Supply around you, it's available there. Have fun enjoying your new pup!
