I have just acquired a Chihuahua/Fiest puppy (six weeks old). I have had this dog for a week and she has NEVER BARKED! What gives? Also , my dog has been treated for worms every 2 weeks since birth . She is passing small white worms through her stool . Is this normal? Our first Vet visit is next week - but we're concerned.
Well first of all, she shouldn't be away from mom and littermates. Next she probably needs another deworming. Most people who have a clue how to raise puppies(meaning not you, the person who you go the pup from) would give them one more round at 8wks before sending them to their new homes.
As far as the barking, she may find his voice later, or she may not. I wouldn't worry. She is still so young, and probably scared to death.
I totally agree that 6 weeks is way too young for even a mutt to be away from her mom and littermates. Please do the world a favor and have her spayed so this type of irresponsible breeding doesn't continue.
If the small, white worms resemble rice grains, it could be tapes. You should acquire meds from your vet to treat this.
In answer to the original question, Illusion states that she could be finding her voice and this is true. She also may be missing her brothers and sisters, as well as mommy. Best of luck and welcome to TP.
Don't worry about tomorrow; it has never happened before.
