Dear friend,


May God bless you for saving a shelter dog!!

A six month old is still a puppy so its best to feed her twice to three a day.

One half to one ounce per lb.

Puppies need twice the calories of an adult of the same breed:

Once in the morning and again at dinner time.Plus a midday snack.

These are the top rated foods:

Here is a comparison chart:


Please let me know how she is doing.


Warmest best wishes,
