How much do you know about that breed?
They are crazy high energy and are usually not recommend as a pet/companion dog and definitely not the type of dog for a first time owner. Also they need a lot of exercise, we are talking 5 to 6 miles of rigorous running. They are usually barn dogs that run along side horses. I am telling you this because my bfs mom made this same mistake because they look so cute, the dog is 9 years old and shakes because it has so much energy. When jacks don't get enough exercise they can become destructive or even aggressive. Honestly, they are great dogs for the right owners.
Also, 5 weeks is WAY to young. You will have issues with socialization and doggy manors because they are missing out on that crucial play time. In order for you to make up that type of socialization you would have to have many doggie play dates a week with a pups around the same age.
Also, a breeder that is willing to let them go that early clearly is not reputable and is just looking to get a few quick bucks. They probably don't know how genetically healthy the parents are and shouldn't be getting your money.
