CONGRATULATIONS on your new puppy! Your new puppy is excited to meet his family and will be going through a lot of changes the first few days; leaving mom, his siblings and a familiar environment. We call this "Transition" and it is important to fully understand this significant time.
HOW WILL MY PUPPY ACT? - when you first get your puppy home, do not be surprised if he seems a little scared, tired, moody, active, nervous, shy, not too hungry, really hungry, overly excited, lots of energy, etc. This is all normal behavior and your puppy should settle down in their normal puppy behavior in a few days. We actually called this stage "Transition" and it can take up to 3-4 days or longer for your new puppy to feel secure in their new home.
HYPOGLYCEMIA (low blood sugar) - what many new buyers do not realize is just how small their new puppy is. They have seen their puppies on several occasions most likely through photos, and photos can be deceiving. Due to the small size of the puppy, they are prone to a condition of low blood sugar called Hypoglycemia. You probably will never experience this, but it is important to take precautionary measures and know the signs to look for in case the unlikely event occurs.
