I recently took in two rescue puppies. While I've had puppies before, they were always the optimal 8 week old adoption and never have I actually had to take care of something so young.
As for age, I can't tell you. Somewhere between 4-5 weeks is all I know. Why do I have them so young? Well, the previous 'owner' had a mother dog, who they never got spayed. They treat her like utter trash in my opinion and keep her pinned up with a male dog who is also not fixed. Because of this, this dog is 3 years old, but has had 5 litters of puppies. I hate the owner with a BURNING passion.
I've tried to report him in the past, but I was told that as long as the dog was healthy weight, had shelter, food and water and wasn't being abused, there was nothing they can do.
Anyway, we think what happened was that it was simply too hot. Too hot, or she finally got sick of having to take care of puppies. Either way, she attacked all but the two boys I have and killed them. You can see why we had to get them separated.
Now, back to the situation at hand...
We received them yesterday and last night was our first night with them. And this is where I need your help.
They won't sleep.
Will not. Sleep.
They howl and carry on all night. For those of you that have Malamutes or Mala crosses you KNOW how vocal they are. Now take one of the highest pitched barks, multiply it by two, and play it in your ears all night.
Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I went and got them at about 5 am, brought them to my bed with me and they went to sleep. -insert angel chorus here-.
Everything, i thought, was fine.
Until I woke up.
Crowely, the smallest, looked right at me, began wagging his tail, and peed... Everywhere.
1. How can a puppy have this much pee?
2. What do I do?
I can't very well let them sleep with me every night if they're going to pee all over my bed.
But I can't /sleep/ if they don't close their little puppy eyes and GO.TO.SLEEP.
I'm running on two hours of sleep and coffee.
I'm so tired. Help
