Injured My new wee arrival, Bella

Post by Laura 123 on Tue Dec 08 2015, 13:59

My names Laura and in my profile picture you can see my wee Staffy, Bella who only joined us last night. Wee Bella was dumped in a cardboard box at the side of a busy road with her 6 brothers and sisters and a concerned member of the public discovered them. The rehoming centre reckon she is about 12 week. She is vey tiny and unsteady on her feet, but we will love her and bring her to full health. Any tips welcomed. Thank you

Hi ya Laura, Welcome to the Forum from Flo & me Big Grin

What a sad start to life for Bella & her siblings Sad but It sounds like she's fallen on all 4 Paws with you giving her a loving home.

You're in the right place for advice so do call out any questions you have, as they say, the only daft question is the one you didn't ask Smile

Injured My new wee arrival, Bella. Vets visit

Post by Laura 123 on Tue Dec 08 2015, 19:15

So wee Bella's just back from her first visit to the vets. It turns out that she is only 8 weeks old and not 12 weeks as we were informed by the re-homing centre. Such a wee pet, just want to do my best for her if anyone has any tips for a pup this young

She is a gorgeous little thing. The best tip I can give you is to socialise Bella as much as possible in her early months (as long as she's had all her shots etc).

Recall training is as important but will obviously take a little time. It might be worth investing in a long lead now so that your ready.

Hiya from me and Maya Smile As Ian say`s socialization is a really important part of bringing up a puppy. I got Maya at 8 1/2 weeks old, and i used to carry her everywhere with me until she had had her jabs.
It will be the best way to go, as you will get people wanting to look and stroke her etc, and this will get Bella used to strangers at a very early age.
From there on, as soon as she is able to walk on a lead, you will be able to start gently introducing her to other dogs, and get Bella fully socialized. Smile
Good luck, and all the very best to you both !

Puppy proof your home much as possible socialise her with dogs and introduce her to as much things as possible kids and different animals amd different traffic im sure she will be a well balanced dog keep training sessions of what you would like her to learn to 10 minutes otherwise she will get bored . Ive fell in love with her too as im a sucker for a staffy pup. She will need to chew id recommend nylabones and frozen vegetables and a frozen teatowel
