    We have a Yorkshire puppy now 6mths old and just under 2lbs. She won't eat her food unless we throw it to her than after a day or two she won't eat unless it's a different kind of dry food. So we switch between two kinds. We give her cooked chicken but now she turns her nose up to it unless we throw it to her. She doesn't seem to be growing n is about the size of a mini chiwowa. We are gonna try ground beef… the Vet says she will stay small. Is this healthy and will she ever get bigger? Should we worry? Her siblings are much bigger. When she was young the people who we bought her from had to give her honey often as she went really sick. Can we do anything? Is she ok?

    That's difficult for a very small puppy like our Shi-Poo. She had never been in a crate but went in with no problem for the ride home. But once home, we tried to follow the scenario described above but the XS harness, which she had never been introduced to, was too large. She only weighs a little over 2 lbs. I've put the harness on her every day for a brief amount of time and we walk around the house. She did take a little walk outside but I'm nervous about larger dogs in the neighborhood and not being able to control her on the leash. I am having problems finding info on how to train one this small. She's very calm and laid back. She is very smart. She's almost learned to "Come" and she does know to sit. We've had her 4 days now and she is using her training pad about 50% of the time. She does not bark and she's sleeping through the night. Yes, you heard it right. I'm afraid something's wrong because she goes to sleep around 9:00-ish and wakes up at 7:00-ish. I think that's not normal. She even did that the first night. But I put her crate on the bedside table beside my bed. I don't talk to her and when I get up I take her crate back to her pen, let her out and she pees on the pad. I just wish there was more help for small dog owners. I love all sizes of dogs but the one I have now is LITTLE!! OMG Very LITTLE!!

    Hey guys I just recurs a dog today from the humane society and I already have another dog they get along really well. The new dog which is named Bolo doesn’t know any tricks or abedience or anything. He is a pit mix of some sort and is extremely sweet. He is a year and a half old approximately. He doesn’t even know his name. They think he never had an owner so what should I teach him first. My other dog is 2 and is a pit lab mix and knows sit leave it lay down go to bed stay speak paw and a couple others and he knows his boundaries. What should I begin with for my new dog Bolo. I was thinking 1.teach name (he already comes when you tap your leg and say come here boy or come on) 2. Sit/stay 3. Look at me/leave it. And I’m not sure if he’s house trained he has used the bathroom outside twice now so I think he will be okay in that area. Please help and give feedback!! With my other dog I want to get him to follow me off leash outside.

    Hey, Cesar, I have a tip for people who want to get a dog. Most shelters welcome volunteers to walk dogs, maybe they could offer to do that on a regular basis. I just started volunteering at a local Animal Sanctuary, and part of my motivation was to help me get over severe Cynophobia. I just walked a little dog this afternoon. If they really want a dog, it's a good place to start! ?
