I brought home anatolian pup at 4 wks because of mom no longer had milk and no one wanted to care for him
he is now 6 wks and showing some agressive tendencies because of not being imprinted /corrected by mom and litter mates
are there any resources that deal directly with this type of issue??

Hi there,

it's always really sad to hear when puppies are separated from their litter and mothers so early, as they miss out on some much important socialization.
Sounds though as if there was no other chance in your case.

Dana, this has been addressed before. Try this link: [url][/url]. The question here was about house-breaking, but crazycrayonmom has had experience with too-young puppies, so is best able to help you.

Good luck with your puppy,

Hi Dana,

I don't claim to be an expert on adopting dogs too young, just a bit of experience. If, after reading the link kjd posted, you have any other questions let us know. Good luck!
