Nope you never got trashed at best the breeder that sold you the dog did,its sad i got on here to ask a question then i get trashed
Interesting since 4 weeks is typical age for weening to start anyway.all ur info the mother ran out of milk so they had to be weaned
In most kennels, puppies get the first taste of food other than Mom’s milk at about 3½ weeks of age. This may seem early to you, but after working with numerous breeders and seeing many litters raised in our own homes, we can guarantee that the puppies of any breed can take food on their own at this age
Could very well be that is not the issue however. Dogs removed from the litter this soon do not have enough time to socialize with other dog often resulting in behavior problems as they mature. This is very well documented and why most breeder hang onto puppies for a longer period of time, I highly recommend you read the following articles because they are critical for the proper development of the puppy. There are a number of states that actual make it illegal to sell a puppy before it is 8 weeks oldvet said thats hes one the healtheir puppy he seen
Leaving the litter before 7 weeks can affect the puppy's ability to get along with other dogs later and they will likely have trouble learning to inhibit the force of their bite.
quite the contrary you got the most brilliant answer possible."Probably about as big as his parents are." The size of a puppy at six weeks does not correlate well with the size of the dog as an adult. What does is the size of the parents. With males typically being 5-10 lb heavier than females. So if you want to know the size as an adult look to the size of the sire and dam,still didnt get my answer
Quite hilarious and self center, You actual think those that post hear do so only to answer your question.whoever that cant help dont reply thankyou
Wow! My little Bailey is 17 weeks old and 25 pounds, and I think she is too skinny! The vet said its good for her to be a bit skinny since she is so long and still growing.I got my puppy, Virga, at 6 weeks of age as well. She weighed about 8 pounds or so. At most 10. She's a tiny basset puppy. But I'm hoping she'll get to at least 40 pounds. She's around 20 right now at 20 weeks old.
She's just that small. When we got her and saw her parents, they were both on the smaller side too. There was also a whole sister of her's there and she was small but fat. We think we'll be lucky if she gets to 40 pounds. That's where I'd like her to be. Anything over that would be gravy! But she's very tiny.Is your pup skinny or just that small?
