    Should i speak to my breeder abt the same? I think in that condition i might loose the puppy.. But honestly saying i dont want a pup with some possible bad health issues related to improper weaning. How many days i must insist on?? And if breeder doesnt gives ear shd i let go?

    Thank you for help guys yall turning out amazingly helpful

    The best thing to feed; a high quality kibble only 3-4 times daily. I would start with one cup, 8 ounces, or a little less at each feeding. Keep fresh, clean water available at all times. Do NOT feed milk or other dairy products, they are completely unnecessary and can cause gastric upset.

    Get plenty of toys for the puppy to chew, do not use rawhide type toys/treats.

    Keep puppy only in your yard until all vaccinations are complete. (Very important!) Take puppy out every hour or so, immediately after waking, a play session and right after eating. Be very patient, 5 weeks is very young.

    Enroll in a puppy socialization class if possible. I would also find a friend or family member that has a fully vetted dog, preferably female, to socialize your puppy with as often as possible. Another dog will help the puppy learn bite inhibition.

    Get a crate and start using it immediately. It will keep your puppy safe and secure during the early "put everything in their mouth" stage.

    Good luck!
    Thank u tammy thanks alot

    I too agree with not getting this pup. Get your money back and move on. The right pup at the right age is out there, be patient.
