Hell no!!!!
I'm not even sure I can handle this ONE much less a whole litter!!! I'm guessing the age around 6-7 weeks so that's kinda early anyway

Cute puppy. My humane soc. is the same way. I took my daughter's cat Snarf to the shelter and I got their and I was seated waiting to talk to someone. This guy comes in with a couple of ferral kittens in one of those trap cages. He told someone he is their everyday or so trapping cats. The lady behind the counter said that all cats coming in today will be put to sleep. They have no room. That is not Humane! I just got up and left. I brought the cat to my house and put a ad on Craigslist for the cat as my daughter could not keep it and my husband said no more cats. My daughter's old boyfriend just dumped it on my daughter as it was his cat. It appeared to be a Russian Blue. I got a couple of calls but my youngest daughter who moved out wanted to adopt a older cat. Snarf is 3yrs old. Her boyfriend loves him and they took him.

Since your other Chihuahua is 12 yrs old. It might be a good idea to keep the puppy. I had a 19 yr. old siamese mix cat who's health was failing and it was a matter of time before I had to put her to sleep. My husband told me to get another kitten while my 19 yr old cat was still alive. It was the best decision I made. My older cat was like a mom to that kitten and they slept together in the same bed. When my older cat was looking really bad and losing alot of weight I decided to put her down. It was hard but I had the new kitten that grew up with her once she was gone. The kitten is now 8 yrs old and she is my only cat now. Keep the puppy. It could not eat that much food and what's one more mouth to feed. If it does not work out rehome it like you said at least you will feel good that you were able to save it from a horrible death.

First pic- is of my Kristy 19 yr. old cat with the kitten Kaylee I got at the shelter
Second pic- is of Kaylee now.

So as per tonight the pup is still here....I have a very hard time getting my point of being up 3-4x a night with the gal across to my hubby....

That said however despite already using dewormer the pup ain't doing well and I actually started to force water down with the syringe tonight....not a good sign....

And just for some laughter here's the 2 puppies together...

Mr Jiggles is almost 6 months old Border Collie and the new found pup (I'm assuming 6 max 7 weeks old) she's a Chihuahua for sure.

Your Border Collie is so cute and that picture of the tiny pup and your collie is so cute. Well getting up 3-4X a night will get you prepared when you have the baby. New borns will wake up every 3 or 4 hours when they are born to be fed or changed until they sleep thu the night.

I'm sorry angel079, I hadn't been concentrating enough to pick up on how young the dog is, or that she had health issues. I assumed she'd been dumped by people who'd got her, but she's too young to have been taken from her mother yet. Either she was taken very young or she's been "culled" (why couldn't they take her to a vet?? Dumping, indeed!) from a litter before being placed in a home.

Unfortunately, not a lot of potential homes would be prepared to take her until she's older and stronger, so you don't have many options, do you? I'm sorry

If you're going to keep her, hubby should be fielding some of the night calls. Just my opinion.....

If I lived in America close to you, I'd take her so you could get some rest before your baby comes.

I know I just hoped while pregnant and before the baby is born I could get some REST so I can then deal with the baby easier and not already be worn out lol

@Tanker my best guess really is that she's 6-7 weeks old. She does run right on to the food when hubby found her so she was obviously already used to the food matter but the past 2 days after having dewormed her she's lacking appetite and wanting to not drink enough and she's skinny as is and a puppy this age not drinking enough can dehydrate to a dangerous level FAST.
Yes she's yet another dump out here...unfortunately that's the down side to my lovely country life here

Right now I'm really only trying to 'fix' her up some meaning proper amounts food, some weight on these bones and regular drinking by herself (w/out 'force' of the syringes), then I'll go from there.

Last night she slept through the night for the 1st time, which also didn't work for me cause I woke up in panic at 3 AM wondering if she's dead or why its so quiet (she normally needs feeding around 1-2AM).
