Default New Puppy

Ok, we rescued a little Maltese x Shih Tzu puppy from a not so great owner/breeder on the weekend. We were originally just looking but she was so sweet and we just wanted to give her a good home.

The poor little girl was covered in fleas and I doubt had ever had a bath. Her nose was runny and I don't think she'd ever set a foot indoors. We took her home and gave her a flea bath, cut her claws etc.

Apparently she is 8 weeks old but she's so small so I'm not quiet sure just how old she is. On Saturday night she was making cute little sucking noises while she slept then when she woke up she tried suckling from my arm. I get the feeling she's only just been weined off her mother. She's going to the vet this morning to get checked out and get her first shot.

She's very sweet! Knuckles is just obsessed with her, following her around everywhere. We have to watch him though because he wants to play and she's so small we can't let it get too rough.

Another thing, she seems to be fully house broken already! I gather this is because she has spent her whole life so far outside so she prefers to "go" on the grass. She stands at the door and cries so I let her out and she does her business straight away! She has only had one accident in the house since we brought her home .

I have some pictures on my camera, once I load them onto my computer I'll share them with yas.

In the meantime, please welcome my little Ruby to DF
