My new baby!
by macrowe1 on 14 June 2012 - 16:40
|I've got a new baby! She's awesome! Only 7 weeks, on the tugs and drags, is mastering sit and down, and is almost 100% potty trained! Couldn't ask for a better pup! I do have one question. What is the best way to deal with seperation anxiety? For the first night (as I knew she would), she cried all night and all day the next day. The crying has almost stopped, but she's still slow with eating (about 1/2 of what she should be eating) and having some loose stool. I've ran maybe 3 different fecals and everything is normal. No parvo. UTD with vaccs, I think it's just stress from the new environment and family. She's wearing a pheramone collars. She's on Albon and Fortiflora, and I've given her a little flagyl. Any other ideas to help calm her down and get her eating good again, and eliminate the loose stools?|
But here's a link to her pedigree!http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=1360518

|She is very cute little fluff ball.|
She will calm down, if she is healthy it takes time and if you changed her diet that will have an effect as well. Give her few more days and she will be just great.

|give your pup a week or so she will be fine and over the worst of it , i am sure it is stress, from being away from her litter mates. why did the breeder let you take her at 7 weeks , i would not untill 8 weeks. on a side note she is very cute , beautiful puppy- i like her alot.|

|Thanks guys! They usually do it at 8. I don't know why early, she'll be 8 weeks tomorrow. She's done fantastic! Just a little stressed and having issues eating and being alone (trying to work on our crate training). But she's the happiest baby ever|

|I'm sure she'll settle in soon.|
Love the tugging picture, she is adorable. Have fun!

|Very cute! She was my favorite in the vids Tom posted. First one on the tug and never saw her come off. Some of mine cried for a day and some seemed to cry for months|

|LOL @ Brynjulf.|
Very cute ball of fluff ...but I am so glad I'm past the crate training stage with Bosco. He wailed for days and days!
(Enjoy the tiny stage ....it is over so darn quick!)

|Haha, yea the crying has gotten a lot better. And MFH27: yes, she was my first pick. She's all over any drag you have, and always has a nice bite, and holds on better than most adults. I'm super excited to see what comes from her|

You know how sometimes they skip back generations to resemble an ancestor? With my crystal ball I predict she will look like Mona von der Dollenweise! I see a resemblance already! You must let me know if I am right when she is full grown LOL.
She is absolutely beautiful. Lucky you.

|Thanks guys! I love her! Have had her since Monday and already potty trained, no crying in the crate, can sit on command, and come on command! 8 weeks today! I'll keep updating as she grows!|

|Sooo cute! I wish they stayed small and fluffy for just a little longer! :) |
Not sure if you're still having a problem getting her to eat enough but I had that same issue when I brought mine home at 8 weeks. I just mixed in plain warm oatmeal with her food and she ate it up! It's safe to say she's a bit spoiled... but either way it worked!
Congrats and good luck!

|Thanks! I'll have to try that. Seems like she'd rather just go go go than to stop and eat|
