    i haven't heard that particular statistic but if both parents are merle colored (like your puppy), there is a good chance that puppies in the litter could be born blind and/or deaf. definitely not a reputable breeder. if you can afford pet insurance, i would strongly suggest you check into it. hopefully, your puppy will grow and thrive but there are health issues you *could* run into down the road.

    The puppy doesn't look as old as said and that registry is NOT a reputable one and is NEVER used by a responsible breeder.. Sadly this puppy was produced by an irresponsible breeder.. All you can do is love her, socialize her, train her and hopefully will not have any health or temperament issues.

    that's what i thought, too. here's a photo of the "registration" papers. i've never heard of this organization.

    I was going to say, the first pic looks 3 weeks and that "6 week" pic looks maybe 5 weeks.

    so, it sounds like they both have the same coloring as your pup? was their coloring "splotchy" like hers? if that's the case, this is definitely not a reputable/good breeder. but you have her now and you love her dearly so feed her good food and let her grow at a nice slow pace. she may never be very big but it's genetics and there's nothing you can do to make it happen.

    it wouldn't hurt to take a stool sample to the vet and make sure your dewormer worked as it should have. there are different "stages" of internal parasites that a past deworming may not have killed.

    As Charlene said 6 weeks is way too young for a puppy to go to it's new home...Responsible breeders never send them until they are at least 8 weeks. She does look Dane but small and not well bred.... what registry are her papers from? I also second Charlene that she looks like she might have worms but hard to tell.

    i do think she's a purebred dane but not well bred. without seeing the parents, i would say they are not very good representatives of the breed even if they are purebred. have you dewormed her at all? she looks like she might have a wormy belly but it's hard to tell with this picture and the position she's in.

    what colors were the mom and dad?

    six weeks is far too soon to take a puppy from it's mother and litter mates. they should stay together for AT LEAST 8-10 weeks. my email is nina@irtc.net. send me some pictures and i can post them here for you.
