He's adorable and seems to be adjusting well. What a horrible woman! At least she did not dump him in the woods. I will never, ever understand how people can do that to animals...my guess is that they treat people equally as bad.

Will him being with Koda help him develop the skills he would have received from his own mother? (I've only ever had puppies that stayed with the mother plenty long enough).

That is the plan. She has always been very excellant with puppies, and treats them like they're hers. She's currently teaching him with great patience that he cannot nurse from her.
She is also teaching him that growling/biting when he doesn't get his way is not proper behavior. So she is pretty much giving him what his real mother would (:

That's for sure! She has the patience of a saint when it comes to puppies, but she keeps giving him this look... It stops him in his tracks! LOL!

Thanks (: I'm excited to see how he turns out once he grows up, his mouth just seems so thick to me.

So...having never fostered a pup that young...would it be wrong to put some puppy formula in a warm bottle, and tuck it under her belly when she's lying down, so he could nestle in for a snack and feel warm and safe? :-)

I did yesterday, but she has already started trying to "wean" him. So I'm mixing some in with his food (:
