Hi, I went to this breeder's house today to check out the puppies which I consider to buy. The puppies and other adult dogs look very healthy and in great shape, except for the mother of the litter. I was told that the mother was exhausted from the feeding and that the puppies scratched her fur off. I have no doubt on the first, but I was wondering if puppies really scratch their mother when nursing. Is it true? It seemed to me that she takes good care of all her dogs, but I would feel more comfortable to know that what she said is true. Thanks in advance for your help!!
