8 week old pups? Your thoughts?

I see lots of people posting about bringing their pups home at 8 weeks of age or earlier in some cases.

I just wanted to see what everyones' opinions are about this. Personally, I don't feel like pups should leave the litter earlier than 10 weeks if possible. Ijust feel there are so many less health and behavioural problems this way. Sure you miss a little bit of the "tiny puppy stage" but to me it has been totally worth it.

What about everyone else?

I got 'NIKA' when she was 2 days shy of being 6 weeks ... and I agree, they should be at least 8-10 weeks before leaving the litter .... but the pup was doomed and if I didn't get her when i did ... she would have been in doggy heaven by now!!! And yes, she does have nipping problems but we are working them out .... she also seems to scared of a lot of things .... but, she is very smart and I could not ask for a better pup!!!
