I recommend that you keep the puppy confined to your household and household pets until he is comfortable with you and their surroundings. This will also keep his immune system on a high level during his transition stage. Hypoglycemia, giardia, and coccidia are setbacks that can onset with new surroundings and a low immune system; please pay special attention to you puppy. These conditions are not covered with the health contract. All young puppies will need their rest time, just as a newborn baby. Please avoid over stimulating puppies.
