Beautiful dog❤❤
I contacted the breeder again today he says he miced up the dates with another litter apparently she’s 2 months and 10 days todays so is she normal for that age im sorry for the mix up everyone and thank u for pointing out the breeder error
So she was only 5 weeks old when the "breeder" sold her to you and let you take her home? And he "mixed up" dates with another litter? I realize you are in a different culture but that is shameful. A pup shouldn't be taken away from it's mother and littermates before 8 weeks unless there are extenuating circumstances.

You needn't apologize for being told a mistruth about your pups age. You had no experience to know any better.

Love her, care for her and train her well. She will be your new best friend for many years to come.

yes and she wasn’t in best health tbh but i fell in love with her and drove 2h to and from to get her. She had some ticks was slightly malnourished and had what i would describe closest to (as a general surgeon) patches around her genital area that are close in identification to eczema in humans. I think it was a fungal infection and treated with topical solution that resolved it. Also under my vets supervision we administered bravetco puppy. Thankfully she’s very healthy now vaccinated and feeding well. I socialise and train her regularly as well as take her on short walks in the evening. She’s truly a blessing that is dearly loved. As for the young age I completely agree and was only looking for puppies at 8 weeks her litter mates were sold even earlier as she was the last of that litter. I have no experience with the breed but its also common knowledge here to let a pup stay for min of 8 weeks. I was able to teach bite inhibition thankfully as well as properly socialise. Id like to add my thanks to all the wonderful members who reached out and provided support bless u all.
She is lucky to have you! It's good to hear you have worked on bite inhibition and socialization. Yup that genital area rash was likely puppy pyoderma. Very common in poorly kept young pups with an immature immune system. Sounds like you have her on a good road to a healthy happy life. She certainly is a cutie! Sure she is going to grow into a beautiful dog! Keep us updated on her progress as she grows.
Glad we were of help...always here to be helpful when we can.
