I suggest you start reading about the breed of dog within your dog. Best advice I can give you is to enroll in puppy classes.
Realize that this puppy relies on you for survival for the next decade and some. Adopting a dog is for life and alot of work and effort is put into this.
Really you all should have researched alittle more about getting a puppy and what the requirements are. As you are asking now, I am certain that there are some great people here on Pets that have alot of experience with puppies that will help you.
