I don't think anybody is going to send you their e-mail address :). But if you get a Photobucket account, you can upload your pictures to that and then post them easily here.

ummmm, i'm going to venture to say it's one of the white breeds (or mixes, thereof).....really hard to tell at that young of an age.....how old is the pup? doesn't even look old enuff to be away from mom and the litter (5 wks, maybe?)

My Sister Was Told That She Is 2 Weeks Old When We got her On Last Saterday. And I've been doing Some Research N Lookn At Some Pictures, To Me It Resembles A Dogo Argintino(Argentine Mastiff). But A Freind Of Mine Told Me That Her Paws Are Small And She Couldn't Grow Up To Be a Big Dog.

Fur is totally wrong for a Dogo. Looks vaguely like a pyr, but it really would have to be 3 weeks old (no teeth) or younger to be that small.

Why the heck do you have a pup that young?

It´s deffinately not a Dogo Argentino because they have very short hair as pups..they resemble dalmations (short coats,white,stocky etc).I know because there are ALOT of them here and it happens to be one of my faves ;) Heres one so you can see:



This/your pup has fuzzy hair,like a 2 week old husky would have.It´s paws are also very small,so I´m guessing its a medium/small size breed what ever it is.Is she a mix? How come your sister has puchased a dog yet doesnt know what she is? Disnt she see the parents or at least the mother?

My Sister Say's That Her Friend Was just Giving All The Pups Away. I Know Itz Too Young. But It's Better Than Being Abandoned. Had no teeth abt 2days Ago but now has Some (developing)

I at least hope that she´s bottle feeding the pup with propper puppy milk? Poor thing :(

Could be a pyr or pyr mix, then.

Please be very, very careful with this baby. It's going to have no immunities from mom and that's going to make it EXTREMELY prone to picking up all kinds of things - including parvo and distemper, as well as the typical problems of a puppy without dog-dog socialization.

Oh,and tell your sister that she´s going to need to stumlate the puppy to pee and poop...he wont do it on his own.She´ll need a warm rag/wash cloth and she´ll have to wipe it across his genital area softly after he eats.This will stimulate him into pooping and peeing.
Having a puppy from this age is VERY hard work..I´ve done it a few times with fosters and it´s an around the clock job.They need to eat every few hours,be stimulated etc.It´s hard work and not everyone knows what to do :(

Don't take her in public. Wash your hands before you handle her. Definitely do NOT let her outside or allow her to interact with dogs (unless you are 100% sure they are vaccinated) until she is 12 weeks old. It's hard work, the person above also has a lot of good advice.

Well Maybe She Isn't That Young, Cause She sniffs Around and Goes to a Certain spot in the room to do her business(pee,/poop) herself.
