We kept a female puppy and she is now 3 months old. Mom still cleans her and puppy still trys to nurse, of course there is no milk but mom still stands there and lets her try. My problem now is that puppy nips at moms heels and jumps on her side and pulls her by her tail pulling her hair out. When they are both outside you cannot play with mom because puppy runs along side her and takes all toys. When you keep one inside to try to play one on one, they miss each other terribly. We seperate them at night to give mom relief. Do you think this behavior will stop? Mom basically lets puppy do anything to her and rarely gets upset. However, and this may sound crazy but mom seems depressed. We are frustrated amd wonder if we have made a mistake keeping a puppy. We love both of them. Any advise?
