Well, he has a name now! We named him Baxter. For anyone who didn't read my other thread he is a chihuahua/pekingese mix. We went to the vet on Weds and got his shots/deworming meds. He cried like a baby and broke my heart when he got his shots but he took the worm meds like a champ, and he loves his daily vitamin. We've started feeding him Blue Buffalo Small breed puppy chicken & oatmeal, it seemed like the only decent food on the shelf of petsmart, and he loves it. It's better than the alpo and beneful crap the other guy was feeding him :/ The bag says for puppies up to to ten pounds they get 1/8-1/4 cups a day, so he's been getting 1/8 cup in the AM and 1/8 cup in the PM. It seems like such a small amount of food but chi's do get fat easily so maybe its about right? Overall he seems like a happy and healthy puppy. He is taking to potty pad and crate training VERY quickly. He only wakes me up once in the middle of the night for a pee break. I wanted to go straight with outdoor training but he is TERRIFIED of being outside, and since I live in the city and we don't really have a yard, I'm going to wait until he has all of his shots to "TRY" to take him for a walk. The one thing that does worry me is that sometimes when we pick him up he growls at us. I've never experienced this with a puppy. The vet said that the people who had him before us probably didn't pick him up right. I've never experienced this with a puppy. Any thoughts?
Oh...and he also humps the crap outta the ferret...lol
i have a chihauhua and my vet said 1/8 a cup in the morning and at night. but if they feel a lil hungry in the afternoon to try to give them some then too. i cant help you much with the potty training i still havent gotten my lil girl to go outside fully. but good luck with the new puppy and its humping. lol
