He is very cute. I clicked on each one and saw the pictures. He is really small! Hope you have lots of fun watching him grow up and we get to take the journey with you! Thanks for joining MT.

Tear stains are tough with puppies. Especially while they are teething. Best you can do is take a flea comb and get rid of the eye gunk each day, wash off the eye area with a cotton ball, and keep the eye area dry. A little dab of cornstarch under the eye will help dry up wet hair.

Yah I clipped the stains when I wash him if the hair is long enough. What should I use on the cotton ball when in wipe his eyes? And how often should I put cornstarch under them?

He's such a cutie! You're so fortunate to have him in your life and he's fortunate that you care enough about him to do what's best for him. Welcome to MT!

Spa Blueberry Facial is good. But that is more for when you are actually washing his face. Some specialty pet stores have it and you can buy it on Amazon. On the cotton ball I use contact lens sterile saline solutions to wipe eyes. You can use cornstarch whenever you want - when their hair is really wet. Cornstarch also stops bleeding if you nick the quick when you are cutting nails.

Alright i will try that the contact soultion on the cotton ball. And i also will get some Cornstarch just to keep just incase i ever need it. I will probably get that facial scrub for him for the next time i bath him did not know i could use that on him.

If the pictures don't upload it is probably because they are too big. You have to resize them before trying to post them. That's one reason I seldom post pictures here.
For the tear staining there is not much you can do right now. Your puppy is still teething and this is one reason for the staining. Just clean the area with warm water.

Yeah i read about teething can cause it. It should stop when he gets older hopefully because he drinks bottle water.
