I've got a 2 year old dog that's 65lbs, but she's an absolute angel and I think she can help him with socialization. She was a dream to her pups. My other dog, her son, is still only 10 months though, so I'm keeping him a bit away from the pug.
Bottom line, I need advice on how to raise a 6 week old puppy so that he isn't developmentally delayed. Taking him back is not an option, as there is no "back" to take him to. He seems medically fine according to the vet.
I just replied but I forgot, get the pup used to going to the vets and socialize when ever you can so they don't get jumpy around people or other dogs, little dogs can be a pain so start them young to help but watch out for signs of stress and know when to stop socialization situations.
