I can say we just had a blizzard and have been getting one to two storms a week. Oakley has a Hurrta coat, a snood which he sometimes uses as a neck warmer and boots used for wet snow or extremely cold weather. Despite that his paw pads started bleeding yesterday mid walk…he really can't handle the constant snow,ice,cold and ice melt..
I think you should be able to bring your pup out; just keep an eye on any signs of hard shivering or motionless (not wanting to move), lifting up of one foot at a time and staring at you. All those can be signs of cold uncomfortability. Congrats on your new pup and I do agree to use caution around dogs you aren't familiar with, but also keep in mind socialization is super important as well. Try for positive experiences with dogs at a safe distance and try to get in up close experiences with dogs whose medical history and owner reliability are there

My friend Sue and I were going to see another friend who lives in NY. (We live in Can) We had our dogs in the crates, all our papers, etc. They were taking about 5 min each car doing thorough checks on everyone (must have been work to order day). Our turn came up-usual ?'s.
Where do you live? Where you going? and then the stupidest ?'s. Where did you meet your friend?? I looked at Sue with this perplexed look and turned back to MR. Border Guard sitting in his chair lounging and said, We met her doing dog shows! He sits up in his chair and says, "Dogs? What kind of dogs?" "Can I see?" And proceeds to oggle, and sweet talk the dogs, completely forgetting about us. After a few min of listening to his baby talk he simply says to go ahead! Sometimes it just pays to have dogs in crates!!
