She has had her first shots, she is AKC registered, and her tail has been docked when she was 3 days old. She is now eating solid puppy food and drinking water. She stays in a baby playpen during the night and is in-and-out during the day. Every morning I put her outside and she does her business. I think she will be easily housebroken because she is accustomed to using the bathroom outside. Seldom is there an accident in the playpen. Hope this helps. Please call me if you have any questions.
