Hi, I'm interested in any personal experience or research about the impact of a puppy being surrogated a week after birth.

A litter of puppies - which I am keen to have one of - was surrogated to several other dogs (all with their own puppies) after a problem with the bitch (she is ok now). They will return to the breeder once they have been weened at 5 weeks old. Some of the puppies have had two surrogates, but all have remained with at least one other litter mate.

I'm cautious as I have no idea whether this would have an impact on their character and behaviour later. Any advice would be gratefully received.
