This is a combination response with your other posts. Slow down, focus on keeping this puppy healthy and fed. There is no reason to introduce any new dogs until the puppy is fully vaccinated at 4ish months. Don't worry about if she plays or wants friends, many dogs grow to not want to socialize with other dogs anyway.

Domestic dogs are genetically wired to socialize with their family - not other dogs. While many dogs enjoy playing with other dogs, one of the best dogs I've ever had had a passionate dislike for other dogs. She learned to tolerate my best friend's dog, but just barely. Her life was not lacking in the least.

I have been following your posts. The main thing you need to do is keep this puppy fed, warm and stimulate him to go to the bathroom.

Friends? Other Puppies? Dear heavens NO until much older. Get this puppy to survive for 8 weeks first....
