You would think that motherhood would mean pups remain loving and sweet to their pups until they are fully grown, but that isn’t always the case!
Sometimes, some pups can be bad mothers, while others can be so taken up by the motherhood instinct they foster just about any puppy that comes their way.
Either way though, the fact that pups are still individuals should always be kept in mind, which means they will have different approaches to handling their puppies. In the case of this Dachshund pup, she takes on a tough-love approach when it comes to her 7-week-old puppy!
The two are playing tug-o-war with an old toy. You can see it is a regular victim of their play, as it is ripped apart, with stuffing coming out of it. You would think that the mother would be more giving to her own puppy, but instead she makes her puppy truly fight for victory!
