so excited only to have that kicked right out of me
why should it matter where your puppy came from as long as she/he is loved and well cared for in the BEST possible way.
My Lucy has given me so much since bringing her to my home she loves me unconditonally she does not judge me or laugh or remark at my flaws.
she is my joy each day and there for no matter where I got her she was meant for me and I her she has a warm bed clothes toys food and loving mommy in me!
Love this little maltese!!!!

I do hope you read my response in the other thread. Please read it if you have not already: Graciella Louisa!!!!!!!!!!

We are very excited with you! I do mean this with all sincerity! The love from a maltese is SO special and they are a true joy

I'm a little confused because you were the one who first posted about the Red Flags you encountered with the breeder. Nonetheless, I hope you will not be discouraged. We truly care for all the pups out there.

I think that all dogs deserve proper love and attention and that is why so many of us try to educate here about how parent dogs suffer as breeding stock at the hands of puppy mills and BYB's.

Congrats on your new baby!!! I have a new baby as well! I actually got her last weekend! She's 8 weeks ; this forum is sooooooo helpful. The mommies here are all great and extremely helpful. I fell in love with this forum & I'm thinking of actually paying for it. Good luck with your new fluff. 😁

Hiya Folkerts2 (What's your first name? Mine is Ann!) My Ivy is now 5-1/2 months old and was born July 14th. At her vet well-baby check-up on Nov. 28th (19 weeks old) she still had all her puppy teeth and hadn't started teething at all. The following week at 20 weeks old, she looked like an old cow and had NO front teeth top or bottom, except for her canines. She now has a mouthful of pretty new teeth.

According to a website I looked up, " ...at age of 4 to 5 months, puppies will begin shedding their baby teeth and by the age of 7 months all permanent incisors, canines, premolars and molars should be in".

Looks like Ivy was right on schedule. How old is your Lucy again now? I saw no difference in Ivy's behavior except for a decrease in appetite. I was really starting to get concerned because she had so little interest in food but she was otherwise her usual self. Her appetite seems to be a bit better now that more teeth are back in her head.

I think dogs can be undergoing some form of teething (from eruption of the deciduous baby teeth to those being replaced with the adult teeth) all the way through 9 months in some! Maybe try giving her some soothing chew toys? I remember my puppy loved the kind you wet and put in the freezer. Or maybe she is being bothered by something new in the environment? Some sounds or beeping? Sometimes, puppies can be ornery when they need a calm environment to sleep. Maybe put her in her crate or enclosed area where she can relax and rest? Puppyhood is filled with ups and downs but it goes fast! So enjoy it :-)

Dominic went crazy when he start loosing his baby teeth at 4 1/2 months old which was 2 /3 weeks ago. I learned with Gustave mom about the bully stick and that saved us! He spends hours chewing on that thing and nothing else. Try the not stinky ones unless you don't mind the smoky smell everywhere.
