The person who has him now got him at six weeks (because people just don't listen to me EVER) and now, surprise surprise, she's too overwhelmed by the amount of attention he needs. I've offered to take him because I'm a SAHM and can be with him all day but I'm wondering how I can make up for not having his mama. I know mama and siblings would still be teaching him manners and how to socialize with other dogs right about now but how can I fill that need?
I know this puppy is too young to be away from mama but the breeder wouldn't take him back and if I don't take him, I'm afraid of who will. Please no bashing. I'm just trying to keep the little guy alive.

If your concern is the socialization part I would start with dogs you know that are vaccinated and good with other dogs. I would not take him around to many dogs at this age because the puppy has not been vaccinated fully. But as he gets older I would get him out and around other dogs as much as possible. You should also do a lot of handling. Hold him on his back,especially if he really fights it. Get him used to having his feets and ears touched,
