I have just left a deposit 2 weeks a go on a Staff puppy. The people that Bred her seem quite poor, but never mind don't judge a book by its cover. Decided to pay visits to see her progress. The mother looks exceeding skinniy, yes I know she has just given birth. I took with me yesterday some raw hide chews. I had put them in my bag which was closed when I went in to see my pup. Mother dog was all over me or rather my bag. I did ask if she could have 1. Wow it took it like it had not been fed for a week. Rightly or wrongly I emailed the owner later to say that I had some food my dog refused to eat would they like it for the mother. Soft touch me. Of course the accepted gratefully. ( I bought the food to give to them) What worrys me is mum needs feeding up and they can't aford to do it, this is why I did what I did and of course for my new pups well being. My daughter said. Just ride it out another 4 weeks and she will be coming to a much better home!
