Long story short my buddy has an “unexpected” litter to his beautiful cane corsos. He is also having an “expected” baby due this week. As one can assume he is totally stressed out.
He is trying to rehome his pups at the cost of the first round of shots (no profit).
I told him I would help him and take one off of his hands. Only issue is these pups are only 7 weeks old.
They are completely weaned off mom - and mom only sleeps with them. The litter area are together all day.
I have read a wide range of articles saying it’s ok to take a pup at 6 weeks but another article will say 8 or 10 weeks. So the range is pretty big. Just trying to make this a win win situation for myself, the pup, and my friend.
Background on me:
I’ve owned a cane corso before.
I have a 8 year one Rottweiler who basically raised my two year old shih tzu (got that pup at 7 weeks and no issues)
Since the new pup is weaned off the mom - my two dogs are friendly enough to teach some other dog behaviors and house rules - but obviously I want to do right by the pup - any thoughts?
