Kelly that is great advice and I often tell people to do that It does help.

For this Maltese puppy I'd do the same, but instead of always crating him when he is tired I'd do half crate half sling. This poor puppy has probably been in a cage all his life with very little physical contact. So a sling would be very therapeutic and bonding for him.

LOL, the only time I had to use the sling was when I used to vacuum. He wouldn't let me vacuum otherwise! Slings are good when they are young! Wish I could put my GoldenDoodle in one but he would break my back.

I would never known that taking care of a young puppy is lots of work although I am not complaining.We are crazy in love with him. Cutish is very smart, energetic and playful. He is doing great on the potty training.He stays in his crate without crying and barking. Maybe little barking in the beginning then goes to the sleep right away.We are taking out of his every other 2 hours and playing about 30 mins. lWe were worrying about his eating and some coughing during the night. We took him to the Vet today. He has a minor Upper respiratory congestion what the vet told us but thankfully his lungs are all clear and no other problems. The Vet put him on the antibiotics twice a day and check up next week. (The vet also said we need to feed him with the dry food instead of the wet food or human food . I was giving him some boiled chicken breast and the brown rice. By the way he is cheewing everthing and biting sometimes very bad. How long is going tontake to complete his teething ? I will put some pictures soon. Thanks for help.

Wow, this is really depressing. Some people just don't want to learn anything. That is why puppymills and heartless backyard breeders can go on. Listen, the government doesn't control, the dollar controls. You give your money to a puppy mill and you keep them going so that they can torture more helpless little angels. Make all the excuses you want...you are aiding and abetting evil, pure, heartless EVIL. Sleep on that.

Pet shop/puppymill puppies usually come with an upper respiratory infection. The pet shop wants you to bring to puppy to their vets to save money, but if he isn't getting better please take him to another vet. In a puppy so young coming from puppymill conditions, it can easily become pneumonia.

Because Cutish was taken from his mom and littermates too soon and born in a puppy mill, he didn't learn bite inhibition. You will have to be very patient and try to teach him the socialization lessons he missed.

Are you talking about my post? Well, hello it was my first comment. But if you enter a forum where people support reputable breeders or rescue and you throw in something else, what does your higher intelligence expect to hear? Your post has gotten a huge number of replies, more than most sensible posters get. If you don't like what you hear, if you don't want to hear it, then why have you come here? Why? You have every right to purchase a puppy from any source you choose. Why do you want to discuss it on a forum that has ethics that you don't uphold? Why? Never mind, I don't really care.
I just hope that if you do get a puppy, whatever your ethics are, you will care for and love that puppy with all your heart...then I will ask you to forgive any hurt feelings and be friends.

This article is very good and I used a lot of these tips. If you are comfortable feeding a good quality wet food, then I would ignore your vet. Wet food is much easier to digest than dry food. It is not spoiling him I hope he feels better and I agree that he should see a vet that is in no way affiliated with the store.
