I've no experience with this but wouldn't he be better of at least staying with his littermates until he is 8 wks old? At least that is part of the socialization being done. Are you sure the breeder is playing it straight ?
Why did she breed her dog in the first place if she couln't care for the pups?The person that I'm getting the puppy from is not a breeder. I used to teach her children and once her chihuahua had puppies she asked if I wanted one. She already owns 3 dogs and I think that the financial responsibility of caring for her dogs and now 5 new puppies w/out their mom may be financially overwhelming.
I honestly can't answer/defend her choice to breed. I can only explain my decision to accept one. She told me that her dog was having babies and that she was offering the puppies to people who she felt would take good care of them. After careful consideration and LOTS of internet research, I told her that I'd take one. I'm simply seeking help/advice for caring for the puppy.Why did she breed her dog in the first place if she couln't care for the pups?
