I am so worried. I got her from a breeder in a small town near here we didnt know she was 4 wk s untill  we looked at her akc regestraition papers but he didint give us those till we were pulling out of driveway. we had almost forgot them. we had an hour in a half drive. so i looked at them when we were half way home. I have been trying to feed her puppy formula and puppy food in the pouches. she eats it okay.  I caught her trying to eat dry food last night from my other dogs bowl. sometimes you can see her ribs when she walks. not bad but i dont want her malnuturitoned

I don't know much about raising pups but I do know that 4 weeks is way to early to leave the mother.  I would call the vet to see exactly what you should be feeding her, don't worry, as long as you feed her properly she should be fine. :)

From my puppy experience, it seems the puppy gets plump then stretches out and gets bigger and skinny, then keeps growing from there.  She looks perfect in all the pictures.  You are supposed to be able to see the outline of the rib cage, the ribs are just not supposed to stick out.   You are doing a great job. ;)
Thanks,

      so cute...i have two boxers and they do show ribs for quite awhile but i would get her to the vet   asp just to be sure...feed her some canned food and wet her dry food and make sure she drinks enough i would'nt push the potty training to hard and try to keep her away from other dogs until atleast eight weeks and her shots are complete.....s he is so cute i want one........... .....
