Default We brougt our new puppy home, and...

We brought our new puppy home, and I'm alittle worried.
Micha's 17 weeks old. She went poopies on me when we first met (9hrs ago) and she hasn't went pee or poop since. She hasn't had much to drink, but I'm used to puppies who are going like every one or two hours.
She just decided to come out of her crate by herself about 2hrs ago, she's doing really well.

Should I be worried?

I wouldn't be worried yet, sounds like she is just adjusting. Try tempting her with some food high in water content such as baby food or canned dog food. This will help keep her glucose up and maintain her hydration.

We brought Bailey home at just a little under 8 weeks (she was 2.5 lbsish) she didn't eat or go potty till the next day.. (she did drink water, not a lot though) She was very nervous and didn't like the hardwood floor, she mostly stayed on my lap

She's probably just settling in. I wouldn't worry just yet.

Willow is about her age and poops about twice a day and pees tiny amounts about 4 or 5 times a day. She goes 6 or 7 hours through the night without going the toilet so I wouldn't worry. She's probably just adjusting.

Thank you guys!
This is Day 3. Yesterday, she went in the morning, I had to rush her to the puppy pad because she was peeing on me, lol. She went a normal amount for her size, but as soon as I took my eyes off her for a half a minute (5 minutes after she went pee) she went on the carpet. It was like a whole cup of pee! I don't know how it all fit in there!
That was the last time she went potty until just now, today. She went pee and poopies outside! I was so happy!
The people we got her from said she loved the outside, but I'm not sure she's ever been.

It will take awhile, Ike just turned 4 months and he is now 75% outside or on pad and 25 % in the house. I love her name !
