Young Pit Bull Puppy

I am going to get a very young pit bull pup because the mother won't care for it. It's maybe a couple of hours old.

Here is a good website for caring for orphaned pups.

Buy a good milk replacer instead of trying to make a homemade recipe if possible

I live in Arizona too, and I would suggest contacting the AZ Humane Society in Phoenix for helpful hints. I believe they even have a free spay/neuter program for all pit bulls and/or pit bull mixes. Their site also has tons of great pet tips, the main page is at

Try goat milk - in the health food store if there are no goat keepers around you. Try the ADGA website, the American Dairy Goat Association, and they have listings of goatbreeders in all states. Arizona has plenty. Good luck! Take your puppy everywhere but make sure she can sleep with peace of mind! While she's sleeping is when she fights disease and grows.

My pit bull pup Rocky is 3 weeks old when I got him, I have been told by many people that he is too young and he is going to die. I have also been told that with proper training and socialization he will be just fine. What tips can you give me on this topic and what info can you tell me about what I should feed him since he is so young?

Thank You,

Call the vet right away and ask them about PARVO. That's what gets puppies that young. Keep the pup away from people until it is about 5 months- this way it will be stronger. If you can find the mom and let it nurse- thats the best for it. (01/04/2007)

DEFINITELY contact a vet. Also, you might want to contact a dog breeder for information. You may have to 'bottle feed' for a while too. I would suspect that you got Rocky from some back yard breeder as any credible breeder would NEVER release a puppy so young. Don't wait to act here or I fear you WILL lose him. Are there others in the litter? Diane (01/05/2007)

A puppy that age will have a very difficult time making it. All pups should be with the mother until at least 6 weeks old. He hasn't had proper nutrition that only the mother can give the pup. Now you will have to bottle feed him. It will be a very difficult life for a 3 week old pup. He should be checked out by a vet soon. (01/05/2007)

Regarding your puppy, I was in the same situation as I rescue a 3 week old from being put to sleep at the dog pound. She is now 4 years old and 80 lbs, take it to the vet as soon as possible, a lot of love and care and the puppy will be your best friend because they believe you are their mother, good luck!
