Ok so for the last few months we have been thinking about getting a puppy. A couple months back we found a person who's dog was about to have puppies. The mom is a chiwiwa pom mix not so much pom. The dad is a chiwiwa pug mix. So the puppies will be ready tomorrow and we decided to get one. We are getting a boy. So our son is great with animals so that's not my consern. I have almost always had bigger dogs. I have been around lots of small ones and thought they were fun. Is there a certain kind of food that is better for them? What about bones to teeth on? Any extra information about the breeds would be great to . I have done some recherch myself. Any advice would be great. Please no bashing we want a puppy for our son to grow up with.Answer Question

Socialization is very important for puppies with people and other dogs. Stay away from rawhide, those bones can actually cause many problems especially GI issues. If you still want to use Rawhide get bones that are big so that the dog will have a harder time swallowing it and onlyl give it when you can supervise the dog. I like Kongs,soup marrow bones, anything that is not easy to destroy. Crate training would be a good idea as well and not just for housebreaking. As far as food goes stay away from foods that are cheap.
