Hi Lori. Murphy is 15 weeks old. He is 26 pounds already and we think he's going to be a pretty big boy. You are going to love your pup! Murphy is goofy and so smart. We started basic training right away and he is picking up things so quickly and loves learning new tricks. If you need any advice on crate training let me know. We had an awesome experience crate training! He never had an accident or wines and sleeps through the night. We just made sure that his first experience was a good one and never forced him in. It took about an hour of him sniffing around it and finally he went in by himself. We wrapped a hot water bottle in a blanket and covered the crate with a blanket. He puts himself to bed now, it's wonderful :) Have fun with your new pup, he looks like a cutie!
