She looks incredibly sweet! I do see why you asked about size because she doesn't look like she is 8 wks old. Have the breeders given you her pedigree and registration info? Where did you get her? One of the breeders here may know if the line is often smaller. I must admit I yearned for a petite 17 or 18 pound bitch... mine was about 25 pounds, and her niece about 29 (but she was on steroids from age 4 for autoimmune so that really made keeping her thinner hard.. but even without it she would not have been an 18 pounder!)
What a cute baby!
My pup Jaxx is only cuddly when he is extremely tired, he likes to be in our company, and panics when he is alone but he prefers to have his space. He hates when people leave regardless of who it is or who stays if that counts for anything.
The biggest issue we are having is him sleeping in our bed, no matter how many times I put him between me and my wife at night ( with enough room ) he ends up at our feet on the opposite end of the bed, even when he is dead asleep and I wake up in the middle of the night and move him back up with us... Sane thing!
However he does tolerates us petting his face, and lets me rock him to sleep.
Mine all wanted to be under the cover.......the rule was, O.K. under top cover, no dogs on sheets! But none migrated to the bottom of the bed. Most wanted to be in physical contact, usually leaning on someone unless too hot, in which case stretched out (sometimes lying across the bed, people relegated to the edges!), and yes, sometimes head on pillow. And sometimes snoring!!
I hope this helps. Ours about 8 1/2 months and he had him since about 10 weeks. WE LOVE THIS PUP!!! They love the covers so we purchased him a super soft blanket that we put on his bed and cover him up. On our bed we cover him with the comforter and I am the same as the other person who mentioned not under our sheets! LOL. He gravitates always to my legs and plops down. When he was a puppy he would fall asleep in your arms now to do that you literally have to get him super comfy to do that but he will settle right next to you on the couch and fall asleep. They love to be up high so don't think you will keep them off of couches or chairs. Not going to happen but they shed so little and they are clean and have NO SMELL so it's not a big deal. I work from home and ours has never barked and only howled for my son 2 times when he was joking with him. Other than that they are super easy to potty train and seems like they can hold it forever. I asked a neighbor about that too who used to have one and she said her's did the same. We trained ours to hit a bell literally in one weekend. ENJOY!
Oh you "not under the sheets" folks. LOL, I can't stand anything pulling down on the sheets, so I let them under it. If I had a bigger bedroom and could do it again, I'd get one of those bedside beds.
