Default 8 week old puppy.

Just got my 8 week old Chiweenie puppy home and Im really struggling to remember what my other dogs were like at this age! Its been 3 and ahalf years since Ive had a pup around and speaking to other owners their pups are way more playful and energetic then Alfie (although they are also more energetic/bigger breeds too).
So is anybody at that stage with puppies at the moment and can they remind me what toy breed furbabys are supposed to be like. (Alfie is all about the snuggling, cuddling, huggles and smooches! He plays for maybe 15 minutes a day and cant be bothered with the other dogs.....I think coz they arent people!LOL)

Can you post video? An 8 week old pup needs to be fed frequently about every 3-4 hours. Pups also sleep alot, but when they're not sleeping there usually running around playing.

Congratulations on your new baby!

Well, I don't have a baby (puppy) now, but when we got Angel it had been about 20 years since we had a puppy! Boy, did my memory deceive me! hahahaha.

Anyway, Angel is now 2 years old. He was 9 weeks old when we got him. He would run around like crazy and then sleep!! He did sleep a lot. Then he went through the stage when he didn't sleep! Now, he is lay back. He will try to get me to play with him (while we are at work) and if play is initiated, he loves it! We also have a golden, but she only likes to play outside. She'll play with him a little inside, but she mostly likes to chase him.

Sounds like you have quite a "love!" We need to see some pictures!

well, when he's not sleeping he's usually just sat on my lap destroying a pizzlestick! He really doesnt do much running aorund at all due to the fact he wants to be right with you all the time.
Mind you, I did pick the most placid puppy of the litter and I think he is just going to be a cuddlebug.....come to think of it I do vaguely remember moaning about how quiet the others were at this age then being confronted with a mini tornado a few weeks later!

At 8 weeks, Chis are pretty mellow. Wait until 3-4 months. Then they lose their minds lol.

Yep! Odie was a little scared of us at first and took awhile to come out of her shell but then all hell broke loose.

I would say he is afraid of the other dogs and not settled in yet, he misses his siblings. I know when we brought Ike home, at 7 weeks, he played hard while awake but slept a lot. He was very slow to get to know my pug and terrier, took about a week for him to go up to them. Besides that he slept, peed and pooped, I had to hand feed him to make sure he ate enough.

My Jazz is like that right now at 10 weeks old. She only wants to cuddle and give kisses and be with me and only plays for maybe an hour throughout the day.
