Hi everyone-I too am a new Hav puppy owner

We got our little girl, Pixie Puff, on the 18th of this month. She's quite tiny-weighing in at 1 pound 3 oz at her 8 week vet appointment. She was the smallest in her litter, but no one knew that she would end up this tiny. She's now one pound 11 oz and is quite healthy and very active. We purchased her from an amazing hobby breeder, who was proactive in getting all of her blood panel testing done to rule out liver shunt, cardiac was fine also. Her parents are both fully health tested, come from outstanding lines and of course are and in the standard weight range. She's just a little surprise of nature. My military man husband melted like a mushball when he saw her, and there was no changing his mind-we had to have her. She's such a smart little girl-using the UGODOG potty with great success (a Cheerio afterward is eagerly anticipated). We're not sure how big she will end up-time will tell. She's such a great little dog. Hope to hear from others that may have a smaller than average puppy to compare notes-I'm having a very hard time finding much info on the web about them.

Todd is very cute! What a butterball. Mine is actually 10 weeks tomorrow, not 11 like I posted earlier. Lack of sleep causes confusion! Hoping soon she'll sleep through the night.....

That's great that you let your daughter name her. I have an eight year old, but a boy, and he loves anything that is loud (loud music, loud sound effects, etc...) he was wanting "Rosebud" for a girl or a boy, which I think is so darling.

My daughter, on the other hand, wanted to name our pup "Sprinkle Cupcake" or something like that. She's four and totally a girly girl.

Posh was already named by our breeder and was six months old when we got her. My daughter had been reading the book "Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy" and begging for a posh puppy...so it felt right to keep her name. It suits my little fancy pants.

We need more pictures of your Pixie princess!

Welcome to the forum! Pixie is just precious....and so tiny! I thought Sammy (who's b-day is just 2 days before Pixie's, May 21) was so small when we first picked him up....I can only imagine how tiny she is. I am glad to hear that she is totally healthy

Welcome. Pixie is soooo cute. I hope you will get any advice you need on this forum. Just ask and you will receive. My husband has fell in love with this breed also. Isn't it nice to see our big men turn to mush? I will be looking forward to more pictures.
