What a cutie patootie ! I think he must be less than 14 days old, right Hill ? Do you know where he was found ? There could be siblings around.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. How and where does one find a new born pup? It's sad he was found but I'm happy he is getting a chance at life.

Being fed half and half he's lucky he didn't have the screaming craps.  eeek

Well the half and half did give him the screaming craps!   thud Apparently his mom was picked up by animal control yesterday sometime and his siblings perished. They were at a school... I called animal control with the confirmation number given to me by the school and they told me she had been put to sleep because she was severely injured... So I've got a puppy with no eyes opened and an angry umbilical port so I'm thinking he's about 7 days old...  thud

10pm feeding didn't go so well...  rotfl He's a fiesty little brat!

Not a clue what he is... Mom was HUGE though... He's kinda got a mastiffish face... And his weight is on track for a HUGE dog...  Roll Eyes He's eating 3 oz at a feeding... close to the same as a typical newborn child I'm told...  rotfl

What a tragic story.  crying He's the lucky one out of the bunch that's for sure. If he is part Mastiff, it's good  you call him Moose. I hope those puppies or the dam were hurt by kids at the school.

Eat up your formula, little Moose so you grow big and strong. You could not have landed in a better place.

So what does one feed a newborn pup?  Don't they sell milk replacer at the pet stores?  Was half-and-half too rich for his little tummy?  He is cute and way too young.  I'm sure he will thrive under your care.  It's a good thing the client brought him in. How often does he need to eat?  Do you need to get up in the middle of the night to feed him?  He sure is cute!  3oz sounds like a lot of formula and that is about on track for a newborn human.

Poor little thing is so young his eyes aren't even open yet.

80 dogs?  Yikes.   eeek  I can't imagine.  That sounds too much like work!  Although, if anyone can handle it, it would be you, Hill.  Will Pete come and help you?

Overseeing 87 dogs is already awe-inspiring but 87 great danes..... mind-boggling.  Shocked  Have fun with your herd of majestic doggies.
