we live in a house right now and recently found out it's contaminated by mold so we have to move asap and instead of renting another house from our landlord we found an apartment. Is this going to be a huge adjustment for Fred? she is doing so well housebreaking now will this move mess her up?

also she never has had to walk up stairs before and here she needs to go up quite a few. She's almost 5 months and I was told she shouldn't really go up/down stairs for a year, is this true? So shoukd we carry her up and down 3 flights for a year than(well 7 months)?

I wouldn't think it would affect the housebreaking too bad, but the stairs thing is true, at least going down, up isn't as bad for them. They tend to walk up stairs, but bounce down both front feet at the same time.

They are such heavy dogs, with such short legs, and their joints are still growing, the shock of going stairs a lot is not really good for them.

Even after they get older, it really isn't great for their backs either.
