We know that adopting a new family member is very exciting and our puppy parents want to watch our puppies grow and mature. For this reason we try and update the photos about every 14 days. Some time we do get them done a little sooner and some times a little later. We will start videos most the time about 8 weeks old. Most the time once we start doing videos we will stop doing photos.
