RECONSIDER Early Spay/Neutering of your new puppy!
​Only Pet Stores and high volume breeders must comply with NYC law to spay/neuter dogs before they are sold. Research shows there are negative health consequences for early spay neuter of puppies. You may wish to speak with your vet first.  The AKC has a position paper on the subject. There are many resources on the web to find out more about this issue.
