Make sure to also get some sturdy chew toys too. Nothing with small parts like beady eyes that your pup could choke on. She'll begin teething pretty soon, and you don't want her chewing on you or on the furniture. Congrats, Mandy! It is so much fun (and work!) raising a little hellraiser!

Anything on the floor she will put in her mouth. Food, medicine, electrical cords, earrings, and so on. Also, the foods really bad for her are grapes, onions, garlic, chocolate, macademia nuts, and anything with xylitol in it; e.g., sugarless gum, human toothpaste, nicotene gum, and some other sugar free sweet things. Xylitol is very very very very bad for them, so anything sugar free you have, check it. Aspartame(used a lot in sugar free sodas) is fine, as is saccharin, corn syrup, and sugar.

Great info! Let me try and post a pic. I'm planning to go today and get the nutrical and puppy food. I'm not sure what Blue Buffalo the owner gave me as it was in a ziplock bag but I plan to get the puppy one.

Sago palm is the plant to watch out most for. I actually had one in my yard, which you can see in the attached pic of my Cookie Monster when I got her. Came on here and found out how dangerous it was (extremely dangerous) and pulled it out of the ground ASAP. Thankfully it didn't produce seeds, which are what usually kills dogs. If a dog chews on one of the bright red seeds the female sagos produce, the pup is done for unless he gets immediate medical attention, and even then it's about a coin-flip.

One other recommendation: yorkie can be prone to collapsed trachea, so it's better to use a harness instead of a collar, especially for attaching leashes to. I use this one now for Cookie's leash and tags:
Comfort Soft® Adjustable Harness - XSM | Coastal Pet Products

This is the one I used to use that worked great from the time Cook was 3.5 lbs to 7 lbs:
Top Paw Plaid Dog Harness | Harnesses | PetSmart

If she is not fully vaccinated, she should not be outside.
Just incase anyone else is looking to purchase a pup younger than 12weeks, you can usually put a deposit down and wait until the 12weeks are up. It is important the pup stays with their mom until then. I personally wouldn't even trust a breeder that gives pups up that young. If they don't understand that basic importance, what other kind if health procedures are they skipping out on???

Congratulations on your new puppy! I know exactly where Stafford, Va. Is because my family lives in Northern Virginia. My Little guy has been trained on pee pads and does not go outside to potty. That was my choice. I am so protective over him and I worry about everything because he's little ie..other dogs, frogs, hawks, alligators etc. However, he does get a walk everyday but I only walk him on the sidewalks. He is a very we'll socialize dog because my sister and daughter have yorkies and they play together. I would suggest getting a tube of Nutrical to have on hand for hypoglycemia. When I got Remy he was only 1 lb 6 ounces at 4 mths old so I would give him some Nutrical almost everyday just to avoid having hypoglycemia. With all that being said...You really need to ask your vet what would be good for your little girl. She is a cutie pie!

This website is excellent for looking up anything about yorkies, situations, illnesses, products etc. Just type in the search box and it will pull up the threads/posts. If you can't find a post then all you have to do is start a new thread with your question and there will be plenty of people to answer your questions.

I hope this helps!

Or if you are handy with a sewing machine you can make one yourself. I have to make Remy's because I bought one xxs that is still to big for him. I got my pattern from this website.

Little Dog Harness Tutorial :: Dog Under My Desk

I have a picture below of Remy when he was about 6 mths old in his cheetah harness that I made for him and it still fits him.

Not much to add, but wanted to say welcome anyhow

My guy came home younger than some like as well, but he is doing great so far. I stay at home full time, so caring for him is not a problem for me. I also hand feed a few times a day, just to be sure. I give a calorie supplement right before I hand feed just as a boost, and only when I hand feed because I know for sure he will be following his supplement with protein. Good luck and congrats on your new baby

This is quite presumptuous. I really don't want to get into some long, heated debate, but I will say...IMO, and in the opinion of many, social interactions are what is learned from 8 weeks up. If a pup is eating, healthy, and a person has the time and means to care for it, some actually prefer social interactions of their dogs be learned in the environment they will live in. For example, my pup came home at eight and a half weeks. I chose this as I stay home, he's been eating dry food for nearly three weeks, and I want him to learn how to behave in my home, with children, not a home full of puppies.

I know some people are going to disagree passionately with me, and I will say beforehand...I respect your opinion and choice to wait for twelve weeks or more, but not everyone agrees that it is necessary.

Around here, 10 weeks seems to be the norm. I think a lot of it also has to do with the size of the pup. The lady I'm getting my next pup from says they will let them go at 10 weeks, unless they are smaller and feels they need to stay longer.

I'm sure a breeder wouldn't have let her go but she was exactly what we were looking for and when we got to the house I knew it was right just had a great feeling about the owner and mom and dad, great personalities, happy, clean I'm not looking for show dog quality just a loving pet for our family. I have 6 kids and am very used to round the clock newborn care. She seems to be doing great though. Eating, playing, pooping, peeing.
