Puppies have to be at least 8 weeks old. Adult dogs can be any age.

Believe it or not, how old a puppy needs to be before he can be sold or given away depends on the state you live in, and is part of the state's animal laws.

My state, Virginia, only requires puppies to be at least seven weeks old. Most states require that they are at least eight weeks old, and some require that they are at least nine weeks old. To find out what the laws are in your state, Google for your states animal laws.
