Rocky is my 3rd small breed dog , but 1st Chihuahua. He's 6.5 weeks old, little young but was assured he was all A-OK and weaned.

yes really breeders usually should let puppies go about 12 weeks

Having had pups from 6 weeks old in the past so presumed a Chihuahua would be ok too...........Little did I know until now!!

I'll see what the vet says about giving him extra supplements in addition to his solid foods, he way not need it and I may be worrying too much.......but no harm in seeing what the vet says!

I have him swaddled up like a baby to make him feel safe & secure and take him to his drink regularly........been feeding him small quantities every 2 hours to keep his sugar levels stable.

Hi there, welcome!
Your baby is a real cutie pie!

I'm currently waiting for a black and tan smooth female Chi as a sister for Lexi, I can't wait I just love them.

(I was meant to be getting two older females as some may remember, but that fell through last minute unfortunately. But I'm happy because they got to stay with their owner after all, re-homing can be so stressful for dogs.)

Lexi came to me at 7 weeks old, and although they shouldn't be away from their mum at this tender age, as long as you keep a close eye on Rocky he'll be ok. Just watch for hypoglycemia attacks, make sure he's fed 3 meals a day to keep his sugar levels up and just take extra care with him

It will probably be to your advantage that you have the other two dogs. They can help socialize him and teach him doggy manners that the mother would have done at this point. It would be great if one of them "adopted" him and mothered him that way. Otherwise, its done, be happy and just continue to socialize him and play the mother role. Watch for the low sugar signs and I'm sure you'll do fine, being as you're familiar with small breeds.

Welcome to the forum! He's a cutie pie. I can't wait for more pics. I'd love to see your other babies too!

Too cute! I love black and tan - Rocky looks like the grandpuppy, Shiloh.
