I am a new basset owner, and very excited about my little patito (tito for short). I am a little worried that the breeder I got him from lied when he told me patito is eight weeks old because he seems so small to me...does anyone remember what there puppies wieghed when they first got them?

Also he is a nipper I say ow and give him one of his toys but he doesnt really like any of his toys normally he rejects that and trys to nip me again. Any suggestions?

Such a cutie! Makes me want to get another one. The nipping is just part of being a puppy...I had a terrible time with that and really thought that he would never outgrow it everyone advised me, they do. Reacting with a loud owwww and leaving the scene helped more than anything. Just make sure you return and love him up after a few minutes. They really are very sensitive. Now that I think of it, it probably was the biggest problem I had.....time and patience. He'll be perfect before you know it.
