    I would say your pup would be fine in the garden hun,Maybe try and fence off an area near to the house,as soon as you can.To be honest tiny pups dont tend to go too far from you at first,(though thatll soon change lol!)
    Good luck with the house move,and enjoy that new pup!

    whilst im all for letting pup in the garden and penning off an area is a good idea, just something to think about is that if any animals can wander through, they can carry diseases and if there are likely to be any rats (not sure, just thinking with a farm and everything) they can carry leptospirosis, which is one of the things puppys are innoculated against...

    it can only be your decision, but if you decide to keep her in, then make sure you still take her out by carrying her everywhere :thumbup:
