I would take her to the vet ASAP. Could be a few different things, but Parvo is my main worry.

Welcome to the forum. Good luck at the vet with your baby.  Let us know what you find out, and we'd love to see some pics of her.

Hi Tori and welcome to the forum.  I hope that your little one gets better really quickly, but being she is so young and it could be so many different things, I would take her to a vet and have her checked out.  Puppies often have parasite or worms that they pick up in the area where they were born and most things can be cleared up quickly but they do need to be given by a vet.  Make sure she stays hydrated until you get her to the vet.  You can give her of the lemon/lime flavored gatorade and hopefully that won't upset her stomach.  Let us know what you find out.  Also what are you feeding her and have you changed her food since you've brought her home?  Good luck to you and your new baby.

Welcome to the forum and hoping your pup starts feeling better....As she hasn't had all her shots yet, I would also monitor play time with other dogs, unless they all are current on their shots..It really isn't uncommon for pups to have a "bug when they come home, depending on what envirpment they were in, but a vet visit is always a good thing when you bring a new dog home.....Also you may want to read thru the puppy section, esp the Sticky posts about things to have on hand.....

Welcome to the forum.  First question would be any change in food?  What shots had he/she been given before you got her?  Definitely needs to be checked by a vet.
