If I'm correct, I believe they consider the smallest one the runt. Sometimes there isn't a tremendous size difference, and other times you can definately tell.Leeann.Bella.Remy said:This may be a dumb question, but does every litter have a runt? Is a runt just the smallest puppy in the litter. If that is the case, Bella was the runt of her litter. She wasn't too much smaller than the 2nd smallest dog in the litter, though. She now weighs more than the biggest female in the litter. Bella has had a lot of health issues when she was younger due to having a very weak immune system. Haus hasn't had a quarter of the problems she has, and he was the biggest male in the litter.
Obviously not, because Bella is one H3LL of a looker!!! :shock:Leeann.Bella.Remy said:I guess the term "runt" always had negative connotations to me...like sickly and ostracized from the rest of the litter. I guess it's not necessarily a bad thing that Bella was the runt.
It definately doesn't take you long to fall in love with 'em!!! :lol:Obelisk said:Ya Mason is far from that.. ghe's into everything and is scard of nothing its funny... get him mad enough and he'll just bark at you like he's one tough pup..lol I love him to pieces already
