|You can put the photo on her page.
Frankly, the photo you have on her page looks like she is only 5 or 6 weeks old.
I would bet that with a breeder you cannot contact AND with her size and looks, she was really MUCH YOUNGER than you were told.
AKC papers can be easily faked and often are by unscrupulous breeders so that they can get the puppies out of their kennels before they start costing them money. It is not unheard of to have puppies in pet stores that are "claimed" to be 10 weeks or so and are in actuality only 4 or 5 weeks.
This is why when investing the money and time in a new puppy it certainly pays to visit the breeder and see how and where the pups are raised for yourself. Did you get any copies of the health testing her parents had before breeding, such as CERF & DNA Eye clearances, OFA spine and patella clearances, vWD testing, Baer hearing testing and heart testing???
Frenchies are a breed prone to MANY hereditary health issues and without copies of this testing, can be a ticking timebomb.
Hopefully, you have received these test results and she is doing fine now!
