No, 3 weeks old is too old for a puppy to be docked. Puppies need to be less than four days old to have this operation.

Yes, 3 weeks is too old to dock a puppy's tail. Normally this procedure is done between the ages of 2-5 days old. You can have it done at 3 weeks but now it will be a major surgery where the puppy will have to be sedated and the tail docked and sutures put in. It will cost a lot more too.

No, I do not believe that you can get a puppy that is 3 weeks old. As far as I know, the puppy of any breed has to be at least 6 weeks old in order to take it home. Sorry if this answer is disappointing, but the puppy has to stay with its mother for that long.
