We took 3 hens in to the auction this morning. As we were loading up our cage this woman runs up to us and says, "Wait, you forgot to put this puppy in that cage first!" I turned and she's holding out this real tiny black puppy with a white chin. I was like aww...you know how it is when you see a baby of anything right? Well next thing I know she's dropped this puppy in my hands and starts blabbering how it's 6 weeks old...blah blah blah...I honestly DID tune her out after I heard it's free...because I am looking this puppy over and I could tell it was only 3 or 4 weeks old...waaaaaaaaaaaaay to young to leave mom yet. Obviously full of worms and fleas and badly dehydrated. Eyes are still cloudy like that of a pup who had recently just opened their eyes. un I mentioned this to her and she says, "Oh, I got her from my boyfriend last night and he said she is 6 weeks but I don't really know. I said I didn't want her so he told me to bring her to the auction and give her away. He said someone would want her." I said, "Fine, in that case, she's mine." Then she said she had wormed her so don't be surprise if she passed worms later. We run up to TSC and I bought a couple cans of soft puppy food and I bought a shallow two sided dish for her to eat out of. I have a recipe for homemade puppy formula so as soon as we had got home I put water in one side of the dish and the other side I gave her a bit of puppy formula mixed with some soft food. She drank a little water and ate all of the food mix. I am also giving her some plain pedialyte to help rehydrate her. Her mother was a beagle and her father a black lab. The lady had said there was 9 in the litter. I can't help wondering what happend to the other eight. I don't have a problem with responsible breeders, or even people who have an accidental litter as long as they take responsibility and find GOOD homes for them. Anyway, I've named her Casey, and as soon as I can get her in to my vets office she will be getting the once over and in a few weeks shots started. So, here's Casey. Isn't she tiny?
