How would they know how the pup is acting after they leave the property.
Talk to people who raise puppies that have been taken away from their mothers before 4 and 5 weeks of age
I've done it - and the dog did have behavioral problems that were quite hard to break.
Sometimes they don't, but a LOT of times they do.
the pro is not a breeder of course and my dog is from an abandoned litter and my sis n ma have a pup from the litter also. all different pups/different attitudes, NO BITERS
well since your sister and mom have a pup try to get the pups together as much as you possibly can , they can learn correct doggy behaviour from littermates and also they can begin to learn bite inhibtion.
there isnt a whole lot you can do if the pups were abandoned but getting the littermates together for play sessions can be a good tool for them to begin to learn
