The 2 newest babies here at Nubbybutts and the last of 2006, no litters til the middle of 2007!....LOL they are so cute.
I am feeding them since mom has no desire, she is recovering from c=section/spay and doing well so far...just no interest in the little ones. Black is a male and salt/pepper is a girl....their humans are so excited!...it gonna be a LONG 8 weeks....haha.
aww....they are such cute puppies.So ur selling them? Well spend as much time with them as u can becuz those 8 wks are gonna go by fast, becuz my mini poodle had puppies and i wuz so excited for the 8 wks to come, but by the time i knew it, it wuz time for them to get a loving home. She had 3 girls and 1 boy. We kept the boy after all and we named him Teddy. Hes about 9 mnths now and still adorable. Congradulations on the little ones and have fun...lol!
Merico......when they are born you can tell if they will be salt/pepper or black/silver by where the "brown or tan" markings are if there are any at all...that brown/tan color will turn to white as they get older.....
Yes they were sold prior to the breeding of the mom, and my late spring litter for Mesha already has deposits...I do not let my girls breed unless I have people wanting her specific puppies, and then its only everyother heat.
These babies are doing well so far, we go to the vet today for tails and dew claws and moms check up, so I will feel better after that. I have raised pups by hand before but still good results at the check up let me know I am doing everything right.
Do you know about what week determiniing whether its black n silver... or salt n pepper?
I'm just curious.Before calling Kiba's breeder looking for Stryder.... I had asked about a few pups from different breeders. More than half at I'd say 4 weeks.. didnt know which way they would go... so not sure if it was seen later.. or usually earlier than that.
Its all about where the color is located on the puppy, tan at ear flaps is a good indicator of a black and silver pup....look at an adult salt and pepper, then at the pup, if the tan on the pup is in the same areas as the white on the adult the pup will be salt and pepper, most likely.
I know some changes occur but usually I am pretty good at calling them as soon as they are born.
When I first got started having miniature schnauzers for pets even I bought a black gril, and by the time she was a year old she was a salt and pepper. I learned 2 things back then, one I didnt know enough about the breed and 2 that breeder was not the brightest one in the bunch....she put on the paperwork that she was a black and told me the tan areas would go very dark brown or black as she grew...I was only 20 at the time and have sinced learned A LOT....LOL thank goodness.
