How much can I do with my 6 week old puppy?

How much can I do with my 6 week old puppy? Topic: The sisters brothers pdf to jpg

Question: She is a lab/Shepard mix. She is small. As of right now, what we do is, she is in her kennel most of the day. Once every hour, I take her outside to go potty, play a bit, then she comes in and rests in the kennel. She spends a lot of time sleeping, which is healthy as far as I'm concerned, since she's a baby. But anywho, I have to clean a house tomorrow. This house is...well..it's downright disgusting. It's full of old animal excrement and stuff. I want to leave my puppy at home, where she is SAFE...but my mother insists that I take her with me. She is only SIX WEEKS OLD. I already took her 2 weeks too early. Couldn't she get sick if I bring her? What are the risks?? Her mommy and littermates are right next door to the house I'm cleaning, and the owner is my best friends mom. Would it be...stressful or bad if I just dropped her off to play with her siblings and mom while I clean?? I can't really take her back. I mean, I COULD but then I probably wouldn't get her back. The lady that gave her to me is very uhh...fickle. Honestly she's better at my house. Where I got her from she was outside 24/7, lying in the dirt. I'm not gonna bring her back, I'll just leave her at home, and let my family baby sit her. She already eats dry food, and drinks water like a fiend. This is her: http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/250473_218632538157665_100000327611813_750348_4539221_n.jpg The lady also gave away her twin brother, and sister..and they're also doing just fine. I plan on getting her all her shots as soon as she's old enough, and getting her spayed as well. In the meantime, can you guys maybe gimme some extra precautionary tips for taking care of her? :)

Don't let her near the filthy house. There are several life threatening diseases puppies can pick up from dog excrement or even places a dog eliminated in the last 6 months. Wash up good, at least change shoes and perhaps the rest of your clothes before being around her. On the other hand, a visit back with the mother and any litter mates would be great. They do need to be with them to 6 weeks. The 8 week thing may be embedded in the law. but it has no science to back it. None whatsoever, zero, zilch. The period between 6-12 weeks is a dangerous time. One sniff where a sick dog relieved itself in the last 6 months can bring on parvo or another life threatening disease. Fail to expose it to strangers, including men, women, children, noise, etc. and you could end up with a misfit you can't take out in public. They also need continuing contact with other dogs, but it must be limited to ones you know are getting good care. The dangers of disease continue after 12 weeks, but the best time for socialization is ending. http://www.apdt.com/veterinary/assets/pd... http://www.apdt.com/veterinary/assets/pd... http://www.akc.org/enewsletter/akc_breed...

A 6 week old puppy should still be with the mom and litter mates so would be eating what the breeder was feeding them. No pup should leave the mom and litter-mates before a minimum of 8 weeks and only a BYB or a puppy mill would let them go any earlier. Take the dog to the vet for a checkup and get to know the vet real well as you will be seeing a lot of them due to the fact that you got your puppy from someone so irresponsible. Look at the ingredient on the bag of puppy food making sure that meat is the first ingredient and no corn.

I agree with TK, is there anyway you can take her back to her mother for another 2 wks or so? If it's not a problem with your friends mom to leave her there while you go work, i would say is the second best option. I have a 10 month old lab and still hate leaving alone for over 2-3 hrs.

At six weeks old, she should still be with her mother, learning valuable life lessons. She also still depends on her mothers milk at this age, and since she isn't with her mother, make sure you give her small portions of food throughout the entire day. This food should be dry puppy food, soaked in water, so she can eat it. If the house is as disgusting as you say, leave her at home. She is young, which means she is more prone to disease. If your mother wants to see her, she can come to your house, or you can bring her there when it is clean. It is your puppy, you are in charge of what you do with her. Your mother cannot make you risk your pups health, because if she gets sick, it will cost you.

It is illegal in many states to rehome puppies under eight weeks old, so your mom's friend may have broken the law letting you take this very young puppy so early. The puppy should not be anywhere near other dogs or their poop. The puppy is very vulnerable to disease before it has finished all the vaccinations. I suggest taking the puppy back to stay with mom for at least two more weeks. You'll have a happier, better socialized dog if she can start learning how to be a good dog with her own mother.

6 weeka really? thats pretty young, but ive taken care of pupies smaller than that because their mom dyed, so now i take care of her baby. since shes so small i think leaving her with some one trustworthy. or at a vet, or shelter the servise is great, its like a hotel for doggies:) so its better if shes at a shelter just for a little bit. it is risky for a tiny dog to travel. i should know they can get sick because they can catch all kinds of desease. good luck with ur puppy:)

Galahad Originally Answered: Cameroon Puppy Scam or Puppy Mill?
APR is "American Purebred Registry" and is not the same as APRI. However, both are puppy mill/BYB registries. They don't specifically go after the puppy mill pet shop crowd like APRI does, but their registration is pretty much meaningless. It's a piece of paper that you pay money for and it proves nothing. My guess is that it's some sort of puppy mill that uses a "homey" name like Grandma Noodle to lure people into trusting them and into thinking that it's just a nice old lady with her sweet pets. Of course if you were to contact "her" and she asks you to forward a wire transfer onto Nigeria or Cameroon, it will be pretty clear that the person stole the photos and is just a scammer. + No, my dog does not go to daycare. If I'm going to be gone longer than 5 hours, we have someone come to the hosue to look in on her.
