Thank you so much for your help! You know, when my husband first saw her, he said she looks like a poodle/schnauzer mix and not a yorkie poo. She doesn't look like any of the pictures I have seen of yorkies and she is much taller than them. We have a 6lb yorkie and they do have the same coloring, but that's it.

Today we started clicker training. I read part of a book last night and she picked it up immediately. We worked on turning her head to the right. I need to get to the next part of the book to go further, lol. She paid complete attention to me also for about 5 minutes and really liked it! She really tried and wasn't hyper at all! I think this will be the key. She needs mentally stimulated. We did this in the front yard away from my other dogs which helped too.

Later on in the day, I took her to a dog park for the first time. She was terrified at first. There were no other dogs there and she hasn't been out much so even trees scare her. After a bit I played ball with her and she relaxed. Then, another puppy came and they played and played and played!

Is it ok to let her run so much? I've been walking her since she broke her leg for a couple of weeks now so her muscles may be built up, but I wonder if she could break another leg?

I will keep you posted about her. She slept for about an hour after the dog park and is now raring to go, gosh!

She sure is cute. How did her leg get broken after you got her? You said, she broke it? Somehow I missed it. I was just wondering if there may be something medically wrong that it could "just happen" (boken in two places), even with a small dog.

She must be really active, if she broke her leg all on her own accord. Crating is a great suggestion, so she does not harm herself again; unless I missed something.

Thanks! I had a retractable leash on her and set it on the floor for one second. She moved and it made a noise and scared her. She ran and after that we aren't sure. Maybe she slipped on the floor? We have no idea. The vet told us it is fairly common with puppies.

I would start new. Pretend you just got her. What would you do? Start a potty schedule. I would start by taking her out every 3 hours and praise her when she goes outside. If 3 hours is too long, you may have to move it to every 2 hours or even every hour, and slowly increase the time until she has it down. If she has been going outside when you carried her around, she should get it fairly quick.

What did the vet say about exercise? Does she need to be cautious still, or proceed as normal? Either way, good luck. I still cant figure out how to get Weegee enough exercise. If you are doing a walk and fetch and the time totals an hour a day, I think you are doing good. She is young, so she will have a lot of energy. I will play with Weegee, but there comes a point where I just say "I'm done." He would play ALL DAY. Your dog has to learn that you wont be playing all day. Weegee is still learning that.

Well, I have to take her out more than every hour I would say. She doesn't "get it". I think it will be better when I am on a better schedule I went back to college and am on break and home more. The vet said she can return to all normal activities. I just know I've read before you need to be careful with puppies legs. She has tons of energy! LOL.

One thing that has helped me is that she is now back to sleeping in her crate by my bed instead of in my bed. At least I am getting sleep and she is doing well again in it.

Sometimes I wonder if she has a bladder infection. She peed 3x this am. 2x when she first woke up then shortly afterwards, I saw her sniffing. Here's the funny thing. I have been giving her hotdogs to reward her for pottying so I think she is so excited about them she doesn't fully empty her bladder. She just wants the hot dog. argh!
