New from New Zealand

Hi there, new 8 week old sable puppy named Shelby from New Zealand. Forum is a great resource and hopefully look forward to adding something back at some time!

Shelby has been home for 3 days now and is settling in really well, no inside accidents, and on her 3rd night only needed to be let out of crate once to go toilet. Hopefully this will continue She hasn't been too interested in food (not eating as much as breeder said she was) since she has been here, so will give her a few more days to settle in before we try and start any reward based training.

Hi! Another kiwi yay. I'm in Wellington

Shelby is adorable. I had the same concerns with my boy when I got him - breeder said he was a hog, but he wouldn't eat for the first few days home. Assuming your pup has the all clear from the vet, he's probably fine, just settling in possibly missing his littermates.

Good luck, and do update
