Um Help... 4 Week Old PuppyOkay... I dont know if this is the right area but I was looking for some advice. I took a puppy from some loser that said she was going to take them to the pouind the next day. After getting it home I kinda noticed that its wobbly and it freaks out alot (from being away from its littlermates). I just assumed it was a small breed like she said when I took it until I looked at it more closely when I got home and noticed it was acting realllly whiney. (That and I asked her if they were 7-8 weeks old and she said somewhere around there so that should have been a red flag, but she was just going to dump them off at the animal shelter anyways so whatev) I just went to the pound and got one of its littermates, (theres no way I could take them all), so that it would be able socialize with another puppy because I do know that is important.
I have trained puppies before. I have had puppies before... Just never had any this young. Which i dont know if the mother just stopped caring for them and thats why she was going to take them there or not but im at kind of a stand still... how should I handle puppies this young because I dont want them to turn out horrrible. I know training is supposed to start the day you get them home but they are so young its like what do I do as far as getting them ready to be trainable?
As far as feeding goes I got them replacement puppy milk and have been mixing it with soft dog food. Thanks!
