It is possible, but not very usual.

All puppies can do quirky things when they are babies, and they can cause a new owner a great deal of anxiety.
Is there any particular thing that she is doing that worries you?

When i am scratching her ears or tummy she waves her back leg back and forth in the air she does scratch her neck alot but i think thats just down to wearing her new collar?? Thanks for replying

That response to scratching is normal for dogs. :thmbsup: With SM dogs, barely touching the dog in a sensitive area can trigger scratching. It can be hard to tell apart -- but I'd not be too worried with a pup that young.
