Puppy Nightmares - Can't sleep through night
I just got a puppy that I was told was about 8 weeks old. SheÃ¢ÂÂs part boxer and part pit bull. When she sleeps, she looks like sheÃ¢ÂÂs having nightmares and then wakes up. She whines and cries in her sleep and breaths fast and even starts snoring and shaking in jolts (but it doesn't look like sheÃ¢ÂÂs having seizures). She does this for a bit and then wakes up.
I feel like she needs her rest as a puppy and she's not able to sleep through the night to get a good night sleep. I put her in my bed with me so she can feel secure just in case she had bad experiences before I got her. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or is this normal? Please help!
