If your sister bought the puppy why do you have to do all the training and other work?

Mia is hitting right at about 5.5 lbs right now, maybe 6. She's filled out a bit but it's been a while since she was weighed. I need to weigh her again, I'm curious if she's made 6 lbs or not. Summer is 7.6 lbs in case you were wondering.

I'm really sorry to hear that... some people just will not listen no matter how many times they're warned. I hope the puppy does well, and I'm sorry that you're probably going to be stuck with all of the works that she'll entail.

Monitor this puppy for at least 6 months, anything can happen and you want to be sure that it is healthy.

I agree with the others who've said at least the pup is safe with someone who'll knows what they are doing, and will gladly LEARN what they don't know for the dog's sake.

She is a cute little thing. I'm more than sure Poodlemommy and Laurelin can help you through any questions or issues that come up with her. I don't have any name suggestions.........sorry, LOL

My guess would be, either SHE does it or it isn't going to get done at all. Only the dog will suffer, the sister won't.

Growing up, my brother always had big plans and big ideas. He'd get a new puppy from neighbors or friends..........take good care of it for about 2 weeks, then it was old news. We ended up with at least 3 dogs this way, LOL. I was the one who ended up doing all the training, feeding, and general care. I could have said NO, but then when the dog was old enough to be out of control and destructive, my parents would have dumped it in the pound.........I have no doubt about this at all. So I did it for the dog.

Now, with that said, you should hear the stories my brother tells about this dog or that......... how he worked to teach it and the dog could do xxxx and xxxx and so on, LOL. My mom and I always just exchange a glance and smile at each other

Funny side note: My brother decided to get a dog a few years back. I wasn't around to have his back, the dog ended up right back with the original owners because my brother couldn't handle it, not so funny for the dog, but HILARIOUS for my brother the "great and mighty dog trainer" LOL

I'm sure that was the dog's fault, not his.

How did you know Dan? He claims it was the dumbest dog on the planet..."NOBODY could've trained that dog" LOL I just smile politely.......there's never any use in trying to tell him otherwise.

Acoop, your brother sounds a lot like mine! He was always handed already trained dogs to compete with in agility, and then always bragged about what an awesome trainer HE was - when he usually somehow ruined some of the good training the dog had beforehand.

I do have to agree with the others, she at least has a chance for a good life this way. She looks really young to me, I hope you get her to a vet soon.
