LET'S TALK ABOUT OLDER PUPPIES
Sometimes an older puppy is just a better fit for some people who would rather not have to go through some of the little puppy growing pains. Every puppy buyer has unique circumstances as to what they desire in their puppy experience. Having puppies available at a variety of ages, this helps in facilitating those needs.

Did you know we sometimes have older puppies available for sale? Yes, we sure do!
Some families seek out older puppies to buy, so we may hold some pups back to meet the needs of our future FADA families. Other reasons we may have older puppies may include, waiting list families that may have had to put off their purchase for reasons due to jobs, moving or other family situations, the puppy may be held back for the purpose a training or w had a larger litter than expected and we happen to have unsold puppies. Unsold does not mean the puppy was undesired, it is usually due to the fact that we have many of our puppies with similar looks but may not be the right sex, eye color, coat color or size for the buyer, we often have more boy puppies than girl puppies. We’ve never had a puppy returned, but it can happen when a family realizes they weren't cut out for puppyhood or perhaps they’ve had an unanticipated life emergency that warrants it. The reason for having older puppies can vary.
Whatever the reason, rest assured, an older puppy can be a fantastic addition to your family!
In the past, I’ve talked about imprinting and bonding with your puppies at a young age as it relates to puppy development. However, older puppies and even adult dogs can still develop very strong bonds with their owners.
Other benefits to getting an older pup are:
More socialization. Older FADA puppies will have had more exposure to different people, animals, objects, and experiences, which makes them more likely to be more confident.
More routine. The longer we have a puppy, the more they get a daily life routine. This includes crate training, leash training and sleep schedule.
As you know, puppies go through a teething stage. An older pup has likely passed this stage already. That doesn’t mean they won’t want to chew, but it does mean you won’t have to worry about all the phases of teething, chewing, and biting.
An older puppy will have received their 16-week puppy shots, which means fewer trips to the vet for you. They’ll be ready to visit public places immediately since they’ll be protected from parvovirus!
Older puppies may be calmer than their younger counterparts.
They have better bathroom control. Therefore they can be left in their play places or kennels for longer periods - around four hours. New puppies must be taken out very often and cannot be left alone for more than an hour or two hours, depending on age.
