    Lots of chicken in there. Probably answer’s @Lalaloopsie pink feet. There’s also Maize which is corn n rice. I never believe in corn for dogs. I personally would get him off that food when you bring him home. I would transition him to the one protein Acana bag. Start with duck as it’s easier to digest. Acana does make 2kinds of puppy food but they both have chicken in them. But you need to determine why his feet are so pink. Can be the chicken or the sawdust. Sawdust can irritate ears, eyes, nose as sometimes it’s mixed with other wood and some companies will put chemicals in their bags. Not a big fan of sawdust. When he gets home put your Colombo cap on and start observing. No chicken n no sawdust. Give him a good 3 weeks. If all disappeared, you got your answer.
    Columbo hat? That’s a sign. I bet Stanlee wasn’t born when Columbo was on TV.

    We had one litter of pups w/our girl Bella... one of the smallest pups ended up being the largest bulldog of them all. Don't let the runt status fool you, sometimes they end up being HUGE!!!

    Agree with the gang, runt doesn’t mean they will not grow as big

    That pup, even being the runt, could eventually catch up and assume normal size. He may not. Our MINI never did catch up with her siblings. We still love her very much. IMO, the runt can make just as good a family member as any.
    My only concern would be those swollen feet. They look inflamed and possibly sore. If I see wood shavings there, my only thought is, this is not a horse barn or a hamster cage!!!

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    We have decided not to get this pup. We had a few niggling doubts about the breeder and the pup so we have changed our minds on this one. Thanks for any comments you have left on this thread.
