Poor baby. The Yorkie may help the puppy not feels so alone and might help the puppy learn some canine manners and body language, if the Yorkie is not going to bite the puppy.
This is really important though so I am going to give it in steps:
1. The puppy's immune system works off the cholostrum of its dam that it drinks during the first 2 days of life.
2. While the puppy is under its mother's immune system, vaccinations will not be effective.
3. Nobody knows when the mother's immune system no longer works for individual puppies.
4. Vets will generally give a series of puppy shots, every 3-4 weeks from 6 weeks on up, to hopefully cover the puppy when the vaccine will not be ineffective, and to boost it.
5. It takes a couple of days AFTER vaccination AFTER the mother's immune system stops for the puppy to build up protective antibodies against the killer-diseases.
7. This puppy needs wormer too. It needs wormer now and every two weeks until it is about 8 weeks old, then every 4 weeks until it completes it's shot schedule.
8. Normally, it is safe to take a puppy to places without high canine traffic after the second set of vaccinations, two to three days after the second set of vaccinations. So if you do it at 6 weeks, and 10 weeks, you can take the pup out for a walk around the block at 10.5 weeks. No pet stores. Hold the puppy at the vet, do not walk it in or walk it out.
9. Usually it is ok to set it on the table, I would ask. Bring it in a carrier -- do NOT let other dogs sniff it while you are there, or let other people pet it. Sorry. Have them weigh the carrier with the pup, and then weigh the carrier.
Trust me, they do not wipe down that scale between canine guests. And your puppy needs to be kept as safe as possible.
Good luck with your puppy.
