I'm brand new to this forum, because I need some good advice with my new puppy.
I got him two days ago from a couple who aren't very informed about anything. The litter was an accident because they didn't get their dog spayed. Bob Barker would be disappointed.
His vet appointment isn't until next week (My vet is a busy guy!)
So, quick facts about Tucker:
~Head: 5" (back of head to nose)
~ Muzzle: 1.75"
~Front leg: 6"
~Legnth (base of tail to neck) about 11"
~Tail: Tail 6"
~ weight: 3-5 lbs
*His fur is very different than other dogs I've been around. It's very thick, and almost curly. I think it's double layered, and in the sun it's like a chocolate brown.
*His feet aren't very big.
* He's completely black but half his other siblings weren't. Two were blue merle, and one was a tan/fawn color. There were 6 in the litter.
*The only idea of heritage that I know of is that "the mom is a shepherd of some kind... one that doesn't grow much"..... My guess is a miniature Australian Shepherd. Which would explain the blue Merle puppies.
Now, I asked how old they were and they didn't know the exact date, but all his puppy teeth are in, so he's at least 8 weeks.
They lived in a rural area, but about 10 minutes from a decent sized city in NW PA
