    Default Black bitch rejecting yellow pups?

    Has anyone ever had experience with a black bitch rejecting her yellow pups? She'll let them feed and cleans them, but also growls and sometimes snaps at just the yellows. I found a gash on ones head yesterday. Litter of 9, 2 were yellow. First time mother and they are 3 days old.

    If so - how did you fix the issue? This is a new one on me!

    Try an adaptil collar and/or calcium. Never had them snap at another color pup though but with growling.

    Calcium!!! If you have tums, get some down her right away. Then go get some Citrical plus D and give her one. If she is still agitated, give more tums until she settles down. Don’t leave her alone with them until you are sure she is relaxed.

    Well, i think she may be trying to cull the little girl out. I did put a calming collar on her and gave her a good dose of calcium.

    Did you check the pup out thoroughly? Is the pup thriving; i.e. putting on weight similar to the other pups? Mom dogs will cull out pups that they believe to be non viable; cleft palates, no anus, no palate, missing bones (legs or arms) etc.
