Default Help picking up my adopted baby boy!

My name is Tonya I have two baby girls now. Ellie and Libby are seven months old. I've been in the process of adopting a little boy who is six years old. He coming from a wonderful family who loved him dearly,they just cant keep him any longer. I was wondering,how should we handle this process so he not that scared. I know he will be but what can we do to make it a little easlier. I'm bring him to my vet on Monday to have him checked out, but need help today. Also the mom of this baby is taking this really hard I feel so bad for this lady.My family is very happy,but you know thier someone else hurting just makes me sad. Any help someone can offer I welcome. Thank You

Tonya ... First of all, bless your heart for being so considerate and caring of everyone else's feelings as you are make the transition of a precious fluff baby boy into your home.

It sounds as though your new family member is leaving a home where he was very loved by the woman and family who is letting him go. Which makes me think that, yes, it might be extra hard for the six year old fluff baby, too. I wish I knew the right words and suggestions to give you ... but, unfortunately, I don't. But, I can tell from you being here and asking for advice ... means that you care deeply for this little precious one coming into your life. With that alone ... I am sure things will work out ... and your new fluff baby (I don't know his name) will adjust, with a little time, to his new home.

Does the family who is letting go live close by? If so, maybe you could arrange visits ... so that everyone is assured the fluff baby, that you all love so much, is in a happy and loving environment. Can you bring any of his familiar toys, bed, or other items home with you?

I hope others here will respond to your questions. We have so many wise, caring, and wonderful women here on SM ... whom I am sure can give you great advise, and hopefully, help make you feel better.

Congratulations, Tonya, on your new family member ... and, a warm welcome to Spoiled Maltese. My prayers are with you, your fluff baby, and the other family.

Warm hugs ...

Dogs adapt very quickly. I do know this. With my experience, the dog can be a bit out of sorts for maybe a day, but they soon come around, and bounce around. Love and attention does wonders. Like the rest of us, they just want to feel safe and loved. If they feel that in their heart, they are fine ~

If there is a problem, make sure you take the doggie to a vet. I had one little girl, who was deemed "vicious", yet she had a tumor in her spine. She was in constant pain, therefore bit when picked up in the wrong spot.

Bless your heart.

Thank You! Just to up date everyone mom changed her mind.I was a little sad,but also happy they could place him with a family member.

Well yeaterday I brought my to little girls to have them spayed. I was so nervous about leaving them behind. Today they are getting around a little better but a little sore. They are both having a little touble going potty,so I plan on contacting my vet today. Libby and Ellie just started eating and drinking this morning , so maybe soon they will start relieving themselves.

My little girl didn't tee tee as much right after her spay. Some meds cause this, so do ask your vet.
