What a beauty..but it should still be with the mother..until its at least 8 weeks of age..much too young to be away from the litter.

From the looks of it, it seems like a purebred border collie to me...maybe some dalmation?...but its still too young to really be able to tell. Wait until its a little bit older..

Why did your friend leave a dog unsupervised anyways? That's not very good..it just ran out and got pregnant?...for someone that works in an animal shelter, its kind of strange that a) she didn't have the dog spayed yet and b) the dog was left unsupervised, OUTSIDE. I don't want to sound like a scrooge, but I hope she's keeping the pups with the mom until they're old enough to be adopted out into good homes.

Anyways, keep posting pics as your pup gets older and I'm sure we'll be able to help you out.

my wife thought that dalmation might be involved. lol..the lady at the shelter told me they were 6 weeks old and that was the available age for them to be released.. Go figure. Anyway bout ure question . The pure breed border collie the shelter ladie had .. was going to be sent to the farm. For Mating with other Pure bred collies Anyway. Apparantly the dog got out.. of her fenced yard. one of the kids must have not shut the gate.. They found her 3 days later... There were 8 puppies . and They were all 6 weeks old. this one was the runt and the last one to be had.. rest of em were adopted.. only reason i took this dog was i put in a request at the shelter any border collie puppy comes in notify me immediatly also was a good thing cause the shelter is taken care of its shots deworm spay or neuter and rabie shot.. Because I didnt get the puppy from the shelter. i didnt have to pay . when the woman who runs shelter is same lady got the puppy from.. Lol i didnt argue.. Anyway.. i had a quick question. this is my first puppie. and I feel like im babbying it to much. see the shelter said to take really good care cause its so smal.and i dont want to babby it to much. she crys alot and when i pick her up she stops. when she crys i come running to her rescue like an overprotected mother with her newborn.. LMAo.. I just dont want her growing up spoiled.
Thanks for all ure help and ofcourse will keep posting Pics. Btw i named her Already. We call her Sadie..(was gunna be lady but. we were like. Too much LAdy and the tramp )
Thanks for all ure help. I hope u can help me become a good father.. For some reason im the one who seems to be a mother figure.. Sadie doesnt acnolodge my wife. much.. i mean she pets the dog and plays it about as much as i do but i guess u have a connection with someone that feeds and waters u and takes u outside.? Lol.
Thanks again.

Cute puppy. Some people say 6 weeks is okay to leave their moms since they are already eating dry food. I personally thing 6 week is a bit young but it's okay as long the owner knows how to take care of a young puppy. I still think 8-9 weeks is better to leave the mom.

Yup, Frank, sounds like you're The Mommy. Sadie's missed out on some lessons her birth-mom would be teaching her between 6 and 8 weeks. One of those is becoming independent. For a Border Collie, I'd suggest some toys that provide something to do, like puzzle balls and puppy Kongs. Let Sadie play with these on her own for awhile. She needs to learn to amuse herself and be alone.

You'll also have to start addressing mouthing with her soon, too.

She's a cutie. You're going to have a great time with her!

Mouthing is when she wants to gnaw on you - your fingers, your hands, your arm, your feet . . . and those sharp little puppy teeth hurt! Plus, mouthing is a behaviour that a mother dog would address between a pup's sixth and eighth week. You need to discourage her when she does this; tell her "no," take her mouth off of you, give her a [safe] chew toy for puppies and praise her when she chews on the toy.

Puzzle balls are great toys, especially for inquisitive, active breeds like the Border Collies. You put treats in them and the dog/pup has to figure out how to roll them to get a treat to fall out. Wonderful things to keep 'em busy! Kongs are toys also, and there are different sizes for different size dogs and there are also puppy Kongs. They have a cavity that you can stuff things like peanut butter or cheese in, they're gnawable, and they can keep a pup busy for quite awhile. When she loses her baby teeth, try some of the Orbee toys (www.planetdog.com). They're wonderfully squishy AND virtually indestructible.

I'll bet that with her Border Collie blood you can get her to "play" herding her toys when she's older. Get a toy box of some sort (make sure it's not something that will splinter or paint chips will come off of if she tries gnawing on it) to keep her toys in. Scatter them out in the room, then let her watch you roll them and carry them and put them in the box. I'll bet she gets the idea and when those herding instincts start kicking in you'll be ahead of the game with something she can "herd;" her toys!
