Pug’s First Day at Home, Need Help.?

Alright, so I wanted to buy a Female Pug for my Dad, therefore went to the Dog show today, there were plenty of breeders, all of them were selling the pug puppies of over 2 months which is super.

There was a breeder over there who actually wanted to get rid of a 1-1.5 month old female pug, for some reason it was a left out puppy, and nobody was ready to buy her. I was standing at his stall and was playing with other dogs he had, mean time another breeder showed up, and these guys started talking in another language, fortunately i knew that language, they were deciding on either to sell it for whatever they can get, or else were planning to abandon her, I don’t know why but these guys wanted to just free up that crate for another litter of Husky.

Anyways, long story short, I paid a decent amount to rescue her, she is like 45 days old, beautiful female puggy (yeh that’s what i call her for now) I’m giving her Cerelac in the lukewarm cow’s milk.

She eats very little, and was sort of shivering, therefore i ended up putting her crate infront of the room heater, she is now looking bit calm and stable, and sleeping very sweetly.

I need to know how often should i feed her, what should I feed her, and how should I treat her …like should i just let her stay in the crate for some time, and let her pee and poo in the crate itself, i need to know a timetable sort of thing which you feel i should follow to raise her well.

You can see her pictures here - https://picasaweb.google.com/118379698636826503564/Puggy?authkey=Gv1sRgCO2nqJDMzvL4gAE#

My dad wants to know if its a good idea to feed her some egg white (boiled) or some minced chicken? Please give me tips and share your experience.

Ok I dont know what kind of dog show you went to? It sounds more like a mill auction. But it is done and you have a tiny baby to take care of that should not have left mama yet. You can give her scrambled egg, but I prefer to use goat milk mixed with jarred baby meat.

NO COW milk it will give her the runs… which will cause her to become dehydrated & weaker. If she does well with the mix for a couple days then you can try more eggs, hamburger (warm raw is easier for her to eat), or a GOOD quality puppy food soaked in goat milk or milk replacer. It takes longer for them to learn to drink water without inhaling it. Feed her at least 4 or 5 times a day. I let them eat as much as they want at that age. That is how I teach them not to be food aggressive.

Put just half of the crate in front of the heater so she can move away from the heat if she gets too warm. You can make her a little litter box with wood shavings like you would get for a ferret or hamster. She should not be outside without shots. If they were selling her early I doubt she has been wormed or had any shots. YOU do not want to just let her pee & poop in the crate because then you will not be able to house train her.

To make a litter box is easy she is tiny just get a big cat box. Put her in it every hour or so… And after she eats. She is gonna have accidents- she is too little to know what you want her to do. You can rub her lower belly with a warm damp cloth or paper towel to encourage her to pee & poop.

It will stimulate circulation if you rub her all over with a dry cloth. Her mama would still be cleaning her several times a day. She would still be sleeping with her siblings and beginning to play. So you do want to hold her & play with her when she is ready… If she is still weak then hold her rub her with a towel at least a few times a day -each time you feed her. Just plan to change her bed everyday, maybe more…

    Hmm first of all she’s a cutie!! U can feed her canned dog food or even healthy hard dog food but add some milk or water to soften it.
    I wouldn’t give her eggs and maybe boiled chicken without seasoning but very small pieces. Feed her 3 times a day, morning, noon and evening before 6pm. Don’t let her just poop, teach her to do it on a pad or even better outside, it’s best to start her young.

    I hope I helped, good luck!

    So she is 5 1/2 weeks, its not healthy but a puppy can accually start weaning at 3wks of age, here are some tips to wean her.

    What I would do is go to walmart go to the pet isle and look for puppy milk its a fake supplement of milk grind up some puppy food mix them together.

    Start by making up a smooth gruel puppy food. I will describe how I make the first food for puppies. I use Mighty dog ( because it smells ) and dry puppy food. Mix 1 teaspoon Mighty Dog with 1 cup of small bites kibble. I put in all in a blender, add water and blend till creamy. I introduce it to each puppy off my finger so they can lick it off. If the pup doesn’t’ attempt to gobble it up I wait a day and return it to its Mother. When a pup that licks it off my finger, then I give it a teaspoon of water and teach it to drink. If the pup licks the water then it moves to the weaning crate. I place a bowl of water and gruel on one side of the crate spaced at least the length of a puppy’s body because puppies have a tendency to lay on one bowl while eating from another. Pups will walk into the bowls and get covered with food for a day or so. It gets really messy but it’s part of breeding and it’s kind of comical to watch

    The puppy needs to go to the vet, asap. There might be something medical wrong is why they were trying to get rid of her. Something cardic, liver, kidney, who knows. Puppy milk is the only thing it should getuntill it has teeth, then start mixing puppy milk with some puppy food till soggy, set her in the middle of it. Teaching pups to eat is as messy as kids. Once she starts eating that that is ALL she should eat!! The eggs and chicken can upset her lil stomach. Puppies can go down hill fast if not treated properly. One last thing, put a warm water bottle in with her that she can get off of if she gets to warm, instead of the create infront of the heat sourse. It is to easy for her to over heat. Dont put and electric heating pad inthere with her either if she has teeth because it’s a shock risk. If you use a water bottle make she she can’t get wet with it. Most importantly again, take her to the vet!!!!

    Boiled chicken and brown rice.(No additional flavor)
    I have a dog to.Maltese/Poodle.5 Months.He loves brown rice and boiled chicken.
    She probably doesn’t eat because of the brand?
    Get Purina brands.I recommend the Purina Puppy Chow.My dog loves it.

    Don’t treat her like a dog.Treat her like family.That’s what MY family does.We give him a bed to sleep on right in our house in our room.We give him OUR food and play with him.In a month since we got him we spend already $600 dollars on him.

    Your dog is so cute.Name her a unique name.My dog’s name is ZyraBean.(Zy-Rah-Been)

    What dog show had a bunch of people selling puppies? It sure wasn’t an AKC show. In fact, what the people were doing is probably illegal in your state because most states have an eight-week rule for rehoming puppies.
    I’ll paste a weaning schedule below. Your puppy isn’t physically ready for solid food yet. She needs to be bottlefed warmed puppy formula. Since this puppy was removed from her mother and was in a dangerous environment (she could have picked up any disease at that "show"), she is highly at-risk for becoming very ill and needs to be under veterinary care. Get her in Monday.
    Weaning Puppies
    From birth to age four weeks the whelps should be getting all their nutrition from mother. From age four weeks to age eight weeks, the puppies are slowly transitioned onto solid food with a mixture of solid food and warm puppy formula. Puppies are fed four times per day from age four weeks until age ten to twelve weeks. The “flying saucers” help keep the puppies from walking in their dinner, but any flat, low-sided pan may be used, such as a baking tray. Keep mom away from the food until the puppies are playing more than eating and then let her in to clean the dish and the pups.

    If feeding a raw diet, the food will need to be ground for them before being mixed with puppy formula. The fineness of the grind can be reduced each week as their jaws gain strength. They will need thicker bones chopped for them up to age four months.

    If feeding a commercial diet, then either soak the kibble or use a food processor to mix the kibble and puppy formula.

    Week Four - a thick slurry, also known as “puppy smoothies”
    Week Five - like cooked oatmeal, with little soft lumps
    Week Six - has chunks in the “oatmeal”, dinner takes a few minutes longer because it now needs to be chewed instead of slurped
    Week Seven - mostly solid pieces, just slightly softened, can sprinkle powdered formula over solid food and add warm water before serving
    Week Eight - solid food with warm water added just before serving, the formula can be deleted

    No cows milk. if you must feed her milk - goat or puppy milk replace. She needs puppy kibble as well.

    NO you don’t let her soil her crate. You take her out in your yard every 30 minutes to an hour to go. She only needs to be in the crate when you cannot supervise her. If you haven’t already you need to book her for her vet appointment and have her checked out and get her booked for her shots.
