They will have all the protection they need for the first few weeks from thier mum (if she is wormed that is))))
I get so upset when people do this! Poor pup!
Non of the litter where K.C Reg - But then again I have known lots of pups leave there mothers at 6 weeks old so no, no alarm bells rang here I'm afraid. It wasnt until I found this forum yesterday on the off chance that I began to read some posts on how Chi's should be away from there mums until they are at least 10 weeks + old
I bought this little chap as a family addition, not for breeding ( as soon as he's big enough thats being dealt with ) so being not KC registered didnt set bells ringing either as plenty of other breeders were advertising the litters in a way that if you wanted to get them KC Registered then you had to add another £200 to the cost!!!
She has offered to give me my money back, this is something I didnt ask for. I just wanted even more of a background into how he has been brought up. She said he had been quiet since his sister left on the Friday
He's eating, drinking, weeing , pooing, walking about, pawing me, licking me etc - Personally I think that the bath she said she gave him on the Friday might have given him a chill! Could this be it?
My husband as said to wait and see what the Vet says before we take him back, then again I am thinking that if its serious then she might not want to refund me!
