OMG!!! is she ever adorable and yes, welcome to SM. You can be certain that you have come to the right place for advice and friendship with the others who come here. She really is so very tiny. Brings back very fond memories when we picked up our now five year old Chrissy!!

She is so sweet. Please read as much as you can here. I'm afraid you can't depend on her breeder for advice, because any one who cared about their puppies would not allow them to leave mom at 6 weeks. In California it is illegal to sell puppies under 8 weeks old. Knowledgeable breeders of toy dogs wait until they are twelve weeks.

Even good vets often don't have experience with the special needs of toy breeds, so you must educate yourself so that you can be her advocate.

Regarding puppy shots, besides not getting lepto, you should not get a combo shot. Rabies should be two weeks after the other puppy shots. I would not take her to a vaccine clinic. My vet never mentioned this, but my breeder sent a letter with instructions for the vet.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your gorgeous little love bug.

And learn, if you haven't already, to do the puppy shuffle! LOL. So you don't step on her.

She is a cutie!

LOL@ Puppy Shuffle!! I didn't know it had a name! We learned to do that very quickly when we brought Ivy home: Standing at kitchen counter > shuffle feet into turn never lifting them off of floor > look all around to identify puppy's whereabouts > shuffle to refrigerator > shuffle back to counter > never lift foot off floor when walking, just shuffle > etc etc

Lol...yes. We didn't wear shoes in the house ever. I learned to walk like I was ice skating. Well, like a person who is learning to ice skate.

Awwww congrats!! Too cute!! I got my Belle at 8weeks too, which is a little early. I was just very cautious with her, didn't expose her to any dogs until she had her shots etc.. all I kept thinking at the time was "Ok little girl you gotta grow a bit so mommy feels a bit more comfortable" they grow SO fast though! Enjoy her!!
