If the pup is undersized, the pup may not have developed bladder control yet. Maybe the pup is not the age the breeder stated ?

Pictures can be deceiving, @foxman350 do you have more you can post now? How's he doing with the adjustment?

That was my suspicion too, since it seems to happen commonly that some breeders like to get the pups out early and people have wound up with 7 week pups...

I wonder if you could get in touch with any local owners that bought his littermates. Then you could compare notes on growth...( and have playdates sometimes, too! :-)

Cute pup, not 11 weeks old. I would guess 7 weeks.

He’s a cute little guy!
I got Hans at a little under 8 weeks, and Rolf at a little under 10 weeks, and your boy looks more like Hans did.
When mom stops cleaning up the pups and eating their poo, it becomes a really messy and gross situation, so some people just lie about the age of the puppies to get the out of their house.

Poop for vet needs to be fresh, so just get a sample from that day.
The vet can have a look and give you a better idea about his age.

He’s adorable! One day he’ll grow into his collar.
