Well we got a male pup this past saturday and he was 6 weeks on monday. He wasn't the runt of the litter, but was the next smallest of the litter, needless to say he is small, but he has alot of heart! He is not afraid of our full grown german shepherd and has a stong personality. Now here are some porblems. Since he was so small I think he didn't get a fair helping of the food and he is kind of thin. Can I feed him more than recommended? He is going to get dewormed tomorrow so that might help. He also shakes alot like he is cold and snuggles up to us whenever he gets tired. This is sweet but when it is time for him to go to bed in his crate it makes for trouble. We have to basically get him to go to sleep next to us and then put him in the crate or he will cry out until we do this. Once he is asleep he is fine and only crys out when he needs to go outside(I am very proud of him for this). The problem with this is he does this about 5 - 6 times a night, wich I know puppies go to the bathroom alot, but it is a struggle to get him back to sleep. I don't mind getting up to take him out, but I would like to get back to sleep after I do instead of coaxing him to sleep. Letting him be while he cries does not work - he won't shut up and I don't think he understands "No" just yet. I really think he misses his litte and mother.
