Good for you! That took a lot of strength and determination, qualities you'll be using again in a month when your puppy comes home and you get to start potty training!

Be sure to keep in contact with the breeder at least once a week for the next month.... just in case.... Good luck!

I agree with those who said four weeks of age is way too young to be taken away from the mother and littermates. It is highly irresponsible to do so.

This "breeder" is selling the pups because the dam wasn't producing milk? Is she not aware that 4 week old puppies can be weaned? Or just too freaking lazy or too dense to finish raising them? Yes it is preferrable that the pups be older to start weaning but since the dam is no longer producing milk, they need to be weaned onto solid food, not being fed milk replacer. I sincerely hope everything works out and your puppy is ok. Please let us know how things turn out.

Another story of a backyard breeder puppy!!

Hopefully you actually get the puppy back! Wouldn't surprise me if this irresponsible person who is probably in it for a quick buck sells your puppy so she doesn't have to keep it at her house. A LOT of people get rid of the puppies as soon as they start going to the bathroom without their mom's help, because they are too lazy to clean up after them,

MAKE A FORMAL REPORT TO ANIMAL CONTROL!
in most states it is ILLEGAL to sell a puppy inder 6 weeks of age!

im glad you took the puppy back to be raised with its mother and littermates, it is better for their social development, with toy breeds 10-12 weeks is preferable but this is obviously not a responsible breeder.
just be extreemly carefull, visit frequently and make sure you keep all documentaion, contract and recipts...just in case.

Raising Doom after we brought him home at a week old was one of the hardest things I ever did... almost as hard as raising Adam. His mother was unable to nurse, too, and had already killed three of Doom's litter, so he came home.
I'm glad you took her back to be with her mother, but like everyone else said, keep a close eye on this breeder, and watch your pup like a hawk. I wouldn't be shocked if she sold her. <3
