New puppy - Willow is home!

We brought our little Willow home this afternoon! She is 2.11 lbs, quiet, snuggly, and so sleepy from the car ride. She is happily sleeping in her crate right now. I'm so nervous about tonight!! I have a crate for her in my bedroom as well sitting on my night table. I have her little bed in it that she slept in on the way home from the breeders as well as a blanket with her siblings and mama's smell on it. Any thing else I can do?

She just woke up and is growling quietly at our three year old hav outside her crate. She has been tolerating Snowy (our other Hav) only when we are near by. Is it normal for an 8.5 wk old to be nervous around another dog?

Thank you!!

Congratulations on bringing your new puppy home! I would suggest covering the crate on three sides with a blanket to make it more den-like. You can also put a stuffed animal in there to give her something to cuddle up with. 8 1/2 weeks is very young and she may be timid in nature by the way she is reacting to the other dogs. Give them all their space and I am sure they will be great friends in time. I hope your first night goes well.

I am sure you know this but you should watch them together for quite a while. No unsupervised play with an adult dog while she is so small.

Congrats, I had the opposite problem, puppy was jumping all over my older one and the older one was perching on the back of the couch to get away from those little puppy teeth, haha.

Looking forward to seeing photos of your precious little Willow. Shama was just a bit tinier than that (1.9 pounds) when we brought her home at nine and a half weeks. Not sure what to say about new dog siblings as Shama is an only. Good luck!

Congratulations on Willows arrival! We need more pictures of your two. Scout was 1.5 years old when we brought Truffles home. Scout just stood back at first and watched Truffles. They got along well from day one. Truffles would sleep on top of Scout. I tried to post the video of them, but can't figure it out. Truffles is like Willow...she growls wherever she doesn't want to be bothered. 😊

Thanks for the advice everyone! Things are going great! She has slept great with one pee break in the middle of the night. She loves her crate and my two kiddos. I'll try to post photos. I'm not really sure how!
