A friend of mine called me and said she found a little puppy out on the streets. She picked it up and took it home. My daughter and I went to go check the puppy if everything was okay, The poor puppy seemed dehydrated, dirty and seems to be too young and is in need of its mother. To my daughter he seemed to be about three or four weeks old.
She said it might be an Australian shepherd.. Poor baby was too weak to look up at her. I have this question about the australian shep, ... Are the puppies naturally born without a tail or do you have to get it docked? The puppy has no tail really or what you would call, it got docked. Our guess is that some heartless person left this poor puppy outside to live for itself. Its color coat is kind of a tan but in a mantle formation. EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL PUPPY! What should I feed or do for this little puppy? PlEASE PLEASE HELP!
Aussies tails are docked at 3days old. some are born without, but most are docked. I would make sure the pup is drinking water, you can even get some pedilite for it. it probably is eating hard food, as I can not imagine it is so young it is still on milk. You could get some dry puppy food and soak it in some water.
If the puppy will not eat or drink, then you need to seek out a vet. dehydrated puppies can fade pretty quickly and die. I hope you have done something by now. Please PM me if you need anything.
