I want a Blue heeler but dont know if I should get a 5 week old puppy or this 1 1/2 year pup
Here's mine. She's a real treat. Get them young mate as they will listen to your every word and command if you give them structure and purpose.
>5 week old
If you're even fucking considering taking a five week old puppy away from its mom, you shouldn't be getting a dog. What the fuck is wrong with you? It's not even legal to purchase a puppy that young in most places.
Acquiring a young puppy is acquiring potential. You're getting what you assume the dog will be based on breed, not a guarantee. Getting an older dog means receiving what the dog already is and something that won't change. One year old is still pretty young, but it's not going to drastically change in temperament like a puppy would or could.
Blue heelers have rigorous exercise requirements, but generally they're very smart, trainable, and eager to please. As a puppy, it's gonna be even more high energy and want even more from you. It also probably will shit on your floor for a while. Really, unless there's some very specific thing you need to get a dog used to, it's better to go with an adult. I don't see the point in passing up a trained and socialized adult with a definite temperament over a little cunt that'll shit on your floor. It'll also grow up having horrendous personality defects and mental issues because whatever dickhead you want to buy it from thinks it's alright to give puppies away at 5 weeks.
I like to skip the puppy stage and get my dogs at 1-2 years of age from the shelter. There attention stand is a lot longer and easier to train and don't shit and piss all over the house.
