Hi everyone. My first post here.
I am very concerned with these losses. The breeder wasn't sure why but she lost two puppies at around 1.5 weeks of age and another one at around 3. She says it's never happened before and is devastated. She thinks it might have been pneumonia or something. I visited her and her dogs and living conditions were pristine. Everything else checked out as far as pedigrees, heart, eye, patella, yearly examination and all. And she's been doing this for many many years.
Having said that, now I'm really worried that somehow the immune system of this litter was compromised and that whatever puppy I get will not be as healthy as it could be.
What are your thoughts?
Sorry that my first post had to be such a downer, but I need someone's opinion on this as after waiting for a long time it would be heartbreaking now to have to just walk away.
