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?

Our Basset, Daisy, was very small too. I don't think she weighed 10lbs. And she was very skinny. Now she is getting very big at 6 months old. 8 weeks old is very young. Daisy 10 weeks old when we got her. She nips you cause she likes you. Ours does that too. Bassets are not known for being obedient. We got our deceased Basset, Buddy, when she was about a year old. She always had a mind of her own, was very curious and real smart about getting out of the yard. Having a Basset as a brand new puppy is deffinitely a different experience. We got Daisy about a month after losing Buddy. Our Pekingese, Spike, took losing Buddy hard and we thought it would be good for him. He is back to his old self now, and we are still healing. Daisy helps though. Just got through potty training, now tackling the jumping on people, ect. When they get older they are a very lazy breed. Buddys favorite thing to do was sit on the couch with us. Great family dog. Just give him time and work.
