Survivor from fading puppy syndrome

Hi, we are looking at buying a puppy. The mother has had many successful litters previously however recently got pregnant by accident. This lead to her only having a singleton puppy. We understood that this can lead to the dog to have behaviour issue and there were measures that the broader was taking to stop these issues. However the puppy then started to show signs of fading puppy syndrome- most likely from lack of heat that puppies would usually get from their siblings. Also with only 1 dog the mum sometimes doesn’t produce the correct milk - which could also lead to it fading. The dog was limp and latching onto the mums teat. The breeder then put the puppy on formula milk and gave it glucose drops. The puppy is now gaining weight and back moving well again. Will this lead to health complications later on for the puppy??

I doubt it. Babies of all kinds have a remarkable ability to thrive if looked after properly, and how lovely to help one that didn't have the best start. As for behavior issues, I don't think that should be a concern - any dog can have problems with behavior, you don't get to choose the personality of a pup. I'd say go for it.

Let us know if you take the pup and it's progress.
