Cute pup. I like names with some cultural connection to me...or descriptive of the dog in some way. My male is Rocco...I like Rocky of the names your thinking about.
An obscure connection for 'Rocky'...In the Catholic 'history or mythology', whatever ur opinion, Saint Rocco's life was saved by a dog...and he was afterward considered 'the patron saint of dogs'.

Not to be preachy but Luvem is right...If the mom can possibly raise till 8 weeks your life would be easier in the next few months and the dog will be better off too. I believe this because I've gotten dogs too young myself. Among other things...You'll have to teach bite inhibition ( which she would have done). If you haven't done this before...I've got a good article written by a vet on how too somewhere...I'll try to find it and send it.

I agree with the rest, not to be a broken record. He is a beauty, if I had a choice of dog it would of been brindle. I like Tank.

cute pup! But 4 weeks is soooo young! My puppies are barley 4 weeks old today and I could not even imagine placing them. They are not even weaned 100% yet and they are such babies and need to be with mom and siblings. Good luck with the pup and your puppy is too young for a parvo distemper vaccines you can go to the vet and get a Parvo only, that is what I do Parvo only at 4 weeks then start the normal vaccines at 6-7 weeks. Please do not take you pup anywhere out of your hours parvo is very deadly and a pup that young that is weaned is susceptible. Good luck with the pup very cute and I agree let personality help you name him ;)

I like names that make a statement....like Justices, Vengence, Honor. Someday I may have a Am.Bully and his name will be Redemption.

I hope that you have soem knowledge of raising such a young pup.

You are going to have biting issues that is for sure. Good luck! 4 weeks old means a lot of extra work.

I like Bruno,but I am bias.

I have to agree on the parvo thing too. you do NOT want to go throught that, EVER! It's very costly and only a 50% chance of survival. Ours did not make it.

I don't agree that getting a puppy at 4 weeks means you are guaranteed for biting issues. As long as you are proactive about it, starting very early in laying down the ground rules and being strict about them, then you won't have any issues.

I do agree that the OP will have a lot of extra work though. You'll be the one telling the puppy what they can and can't do. I suggest as soon as the puppy is old enough (say around 8-10 weeks) to socializesocializesocialize them with other dogs and puppies. Take them to a puppy socialization class where the primary focus is on play time with other dogs. That way they can get a remedial dose of bite inhibition.

From the beginning, teach him that he cannot lay a tooth on you, even on accident. It pays to be stricter in the beginning than you otherwise would be when they're an adult. But start gradually. Let him bite or mouth you, squeak really high-pitched or yell OUCH, and then immediately end all interaction by putting them in another room or in their crate with a toy. As time goes on, slowly lower the criteria so that he's biting you softer and softer until it gets to the point where he's learned that humans are weak pathetic creatures and will cry the tears of a thousand suns and wail and beat their chests at even the tiniest little scrape of a tooth across skin. :)

When he's an adult, you'll be glad you've established that. Even when Kane accidentally nicks me when we're playing tug, it hurts very bad. Play still immediately ends when he does it, but I'm not strict enough to "punish" him or set him away from me.

I never had a biting issue with Vendetta or DaVince both were 4wks when they came home. There is alot more work involved with raising a younge pup but the fact is the op came looking for advice, what done is done lets make sure the op has some great advice to fall back on in raising this pup.
