Re: Help/opinions PLEASE!
My pups are born weighing between 13 and 17 ounces. If this pup is only four pounds, it is probably three or four weeks old tops. I do not like the blood in the stool, but it is probably even young for having been vaccinated. Usually I start them at six weeks.
Arwen was just under six weeks old when I got her and six pounds so I suppose it is possible that your pup is small and 4 weeks.
If I wanted the puppy to eat, I would try raw hamburger, though at this age, they might like it to be a little warm too. After a couple of days add a little rice. But I think that you should really take the baby back. On the flip side the evil sack of poo that sold this pup is probably not going to provide for it any better than you can. But she should not have your money. But you may be able to save this pup and give her a good home.
The decision is yours and I support whatever you choose. Poor pup.
Please consider calling animal control and having them check her out and check out her records. If the pup has papers, call the registering agency. The AKC does perform inspections on kennels and does look at paperwork, though they will not do it on demand, if enough people complain she may make their list. I think the breeder should be held accountable. Even if they cannot rake her over the coals they can cause a bit of discomfort for the audit. I do not say this lightly, I breed GSDs and think that this type of behavior should be really discouraged.
