This is my new pup who is 10 weeks old weighing 8lbs. Poor baby, he had a parasite in his tummy with diarrehia for 4 days (we have been on medicine for 3 days) & currently trying to gain some weight back - any help is appreciated!

Am curious if anyone has a little puppy similar and what they look like now? I understand it could be far fetch, but I like to play around with it in my head!
He has little waves to his hair but you can't tell unless one falls out. His coat is very fuzzy too!
I may be wrong but at this point I think your darling puppy has what is called a flat coat which means he'll look much like a miniature lab. He will probably shed.
Cute! Definitely looks like a flat coated doodle, he is 3/4 unfurnished dog after all.
He may have a bit of "scruff" but I definitely wouldn't expect a full coat and I would bet money that he will shed heavily.
I agree. He is 3/4 Retriever, and is likely going to look pretty much like a Lab. He is definitely unfurnished and flat coated. He is definitely going to shed.
The tummy condition is giardia. It is very important that you give a good probiotic any time a puppy is on metronidazole (flagyl), which is likely the meds he is taking. Possbily it is Panacur, which is a better choice, but either way, he needs a probiotic like Proviable (It can be ordered from Chewy.com). It must be given at least 2 hours apart from the meds, and longer is better. You will need to continue it for at least two weeks after the meds are discontinued.
IF you didn't tell me what he was I would guess labrador retriever with the wrong color nose/points (just because in labs they are supposed to be black). Cute pup, but will 100% shed and look very lab-like--it's possible he'll have a few wisps, but not much.
His eyes and points would be correct for a chocolate lab, though. Somebody in his background is likely brown.
He truly has beautiful coloring and body conformation.
Here are the parents!
He looks much like his lab dad. He'll most likely be smaller.
He got the recessive liver markings (nose, lips) that both carried (even though they didn't have the coloring) and he got the lab-like hair they both carried (but only one had in appearance). Kind of an odd breeding, was it an accidental breeding. Both dogs are lovely, but this is not a combo that stands much chance of creating a "doodley" looking dog that doesn't shed.
