Wow! Why on earth is there an 11 week old baby at a Rescue?? Poor thing!
I can tell you that it's quite challenging at that age, esp. if you aren't home much. I was home all the time, still am, when Ricky was here at 9 weeks of age, and I was 'on the job' non-stop for a long while. I know some work fulltime and still raise puppies, but there is usually a break in the long day where someone goes and interacts/plays/trains the pup for a good hour before leaving it again.
If the pup is paper/litter trained, that can make things a lot easier. Taking it to work can help a lot too. The pup may be perfectly happy spending the night in the pen with his older siblings, but if not, you might have to keep him in your room for a while. I have no clue as to how Tripp and Dreamer will react to that, if they will at all.
Personally, I think it's going to be a much greater adjustment than what you've had to do so far since you've had your two. You were saying how wonderfully they integrated into the family, how things have been going so well, but a baby will definitely stir things up a bit! lol It could be GOOD, I'm not saying it's not a good idea, but I think it will be a challenge.
