Hi, I recently had a litter of pups who are all healthy and I have put a lot of time into hand feeding as my female was really struggling to cope with 10 puppies. She was producing more than enough milk to the point where the vet has been talking about putting her on a hormonal treatment. She had a litter of 9 females and one Male. The pup I’m concerned about is the only Male and wanted to know if anyone could advise me on what to do. I have noticed that our Male puppy is crying a lot and it’s not for food as I regualarly offer this to him and he is eating very well. He is also going to the toilet with no problems and his stools are a good consistency and colour. The only way I can stop him from crying is to pick him out and let him cuddle with me. I thought he could be sensitive to cold and because mum doesn’t want too much to do with them I gave them nice warm blankets which they all curl up in. Sometimes he is happy to curl up and sleep with his siblings but most of the time he is struck to me or climbing my legs because he wants to be with me. He will happily sleep with the litter on the rare occasions mum decides she wants to feed them or sleep with them. He also doesn’t want to play with his siblings but instead gets playful and tries to play with me. I have never breed before, I didn’t plan this litter. My husband work went into liquidation and wouldn’t pay him for months right around the time we could spayed our female. She went to stay with my mum during this time and despite telling her she wasn’t spayed yet . They didn’t make sure she was seperated from any males in the house hold who weren’t neutered. feel so stupid for sending her there. Should have seen this coming and feel like a terrible owner. I feel like a lot of these problems is because mum was too young ( is currently a year and 2 months old). I am very concerned about the Male pup getting all the critical social interactions he needs with his litter mates and mother . I’m also concerned that he can’t be rehomed because he seems to have grown a very strong love for me and I’m not entirely sure I can take on a third dog right now with a baby due in only a short couple of weeks. I’m also wondering if maybe I should take the puppy to the vet but he isn’t running a temperature, is eating and drinking fine. Likes playing and goes to the toilet normally . So I’m not sure there is anything the vet can even do. I was wondering if anyone knew what could be wrong with the puppy or what I can do to help him and give him the best start in life. If I have to keep him , I will because I’d hate for him to end up in a shelter or worse put down The puppy is a Lurcher cross border collie. Mum has a history of anxiety which is one of the reasons why I’m so upset that she landed up being bred.
