Title: AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE SALE OR TRANSFER OF A
PUPPY UNDER THE AGE OF EIGHT WEEKS OF AGE.
Sponsor: B. Short

PDFmyURL.com
Abstract: Very young puppies learn bite inhibition and appropriate play behaviors during the 5th to 8th week with
the mom and littermates. Puppies who are separated before this age are much more at risk for serious
biting behaviors and dog to dog aggression. Health considerations are also important. This Bill makes
it unlawful to sell or otherwise transfer a puppy until it is 8 weeks of age so their natural tendencies will
be mitigated.
