I have this new puppy that kind of fell into my lap. It was a situation of someone take him (and his 5 letter mates) or they will be euthanized. I believe all were taken and spared. He is about 6wks old. Everything that I am reading on line is that its to soon to be away from the litter, that he will have behavioral problems as an adult. Is this true? I would like to crate train him but all he does, when put in it at night, is cry and howl. I sleep on the couch to be near him and to try and calm him down. Not sure what to do. Also, I take him out every 30mins to 1hour to potty. We are outside walking around for about 20-30 mins and he doesn't always go but when we come back into the house he will pee. Am I doing something wrong? I need some help! Any advise will greatly be appreciated!
