She paying 1000 pounds for a 4 week old mongrel?
because without pedigree kc papers that is what it is??
Its also just cruel to take a 4 week old puppy on if its mother is till alive it is no where near ready to leave!!
8 weeks is the minimum age 10 weeks is prefered in some cases
...where and when will it learn how to socialise with other dogs if it doesnt get a chance to play with its littermates and interact with its mother?
..hell when will it learn what level of biting is ok in play they learn that from playing with littermates and the repercussions there...will it learn when it starts biting her young kids??
It most certainly wont be housetrained...or even trainable until its older!
And thats before i even think about the mischief that the unsupervised puppy will get up to as it gets older....
Poor poor Puppy
Shes being conned by a puppy farmer by the sounds of things to no respectable dealer would sell a 4 week old pup...even orphan pups are hand reared and kept as a litter until 8 weeks!
You should advise her to the vet before she buys the dog...
tell her to go in and ask about buying a 4 week old pup and any worthwhile vet will tell her the cons and advise against it...
Mention its a "bulldog" and she can get the list of health problems and cost of insurance as well....
Disaster waiting to happen
Feel free to show her this thread if you think it might knock some sense into her.Has she no idea what she is about to take on?
