Default Help...4 nights in. Oy Vey!

Hello
I have searched and read so many posts looking for answers and got a few but I am losing it. We got a tiny female chl 4 nights ago. The first 2 nights she slept in a soft sided carrier in my teenage sons room. Last night we moved her into a large rectangle plastic tote, no lid. Food on one end pee pad on other. Toys. Last night my son accidentally fell asleep with her in his bed. She either jumped or fell off and was found in her carrier in the morning quiet stressed and shaken up. Tonight I brought her tote box into my room so my son could sleep. She has bared whined cried and yelped for what seems like forever. She got so worked up she pooped really loosely all over. So I took her out to clean her and she was asleep in seconds. She woke up a while later and I took her to potty. Put her back in box after I cleaned it. She started whining crying, etc. So I blew it and picked her up. Set her on the bed and she immediately went to sleep.
So, realistically how long is to long to let them cry? I would think after 20-
30 minutes but this one can keep going.
A friend is going to loan me her dog crate. It's a large one but that should give her plenty of room for her bed, pee pads, blankets and food and water. I am going to put it in the laundry room which is at the other end of the house. Is that a good or bad idea?
Please help. I need to know how long is too long to let do all that? I know this post has to be moderated so there is no one around at 145am to talk to. She doesnt just cry and bark and yelp but she jumps up and down trying to get out. It doesnt look like she can but one never knows so I'm nervous about that too. There are hard wood floors here.
Is all the whining and crying bad for them? I know they stress out a lot and that lowers their blood sugar. I dont want her to get hurt or sick or die.
Help.

If she has fallen off the bed,have you had her checked by a vet ? she may have hurt her little legs

She isn't hurt. I think it's the "lonliness" nights. I am used to training larger breed dogs and know full well how they are those first few days or so when they first go to their new home. I just wasn't sure about this breed as I am learning they stress so easily and with stress comes blood sugar issues..I put the box I had her in in another room. After only 3 hours of sleep I woke up, checked on her because she was quiet..she was just sitting there staring at me. All is well for today..

How old is this baby? Sounds like she's very young. Too young to be without her mom. If she was comfortable in the soft-sided carrier, I'd put her back in it. Pups like warmth. Is there a blanket for her in there? Does she have adequate play time? Are you sure her little legs or ribs aren't hurt from the fall. 20-30 min. is too long. I couldn't stand listening to this baby cry that long. I would either have her sleep with me or beside my bed where I can reach down to touch her to comfort her.

I have found that chi's are really clingy. She's small, in an unfamiliar place and probable gets scared easily. When i got Mia she was in the bed with us from day 1 (some say this is bad) but for us it worked. When i got they boys, i did crate them in a seperate room, but they were litter mates so they were fine as long as they were together. Now all 3 are in our bed...I guess it's just a matter of getting to know your dog and what is right for you.

It sounds like she is probably scared. I agree with the advice given above.

I'd be clingy too if I was as small as a squirrel! Lol Can you blame them. I love that clingy-ness tho. I think that's why we all love them soooooooooooo much.

She runs and plays and frolics just fine. When I hold her, carry her or pet her she does not do anything to indicate she is hurt. As for her sleeping in my bed, I can't do that. If she fell or jumped off my sons bed then she would do that to mine and mine sits higher and all floors are hard wood. I tried putting the box next to my bed where she could see me. I think that made it worse. I would tell her NO and tell her its night night time. She only got more aggravated. I am thinking about getting a puppy playpen thingy and putting her in the laundry room. Its on the other side of house so as not to disturb our sleep. When she is settled in and not making so much noise at night I will move to closer. I know she is clingy. I know she is young. Six years ago I brought home a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix at 7 weeks. She was small and loud at night as well and we kept her in a different room then too. She is now the best dog ever and sleeps in our bed almost every night. Hoping eventually this little one will get there too. This little one will be 8 weeks old on Monday. I know that is young. So far so good, for today
