    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?

    That response to scratching is normal for dogs. 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.
