Just wanna make sure we don't pick the 8 month old, expecting a more sedate pup and end up with a furry tornado (and I definatley know there's not telling how the dog will behave).
High schoolers are still far from being settled, sedate adults. They still have plenty of energy and mischief in them, so be prepared! (I teach high school kids!)
If you are really looking for a settled dog, go for an adult. Otherwise, be prepared for plenty of antics, at least until the dog is a couple of years old.
