Okay--a puppy needs to be with its mother for at least 8-10 weeks, to nurse/feed!
The term is Bowel Movements, and a puppy needs to be fed about 5 times a day, and will have up to 5 'poops' (Bowel Movements) a day--as well as 6+ 'pees'.
Buy some piddle pads, as a puppy will need to be confined to a crate--or very small area--or it will pee and poop everywhere. Once it pees and poops on furniture/and/or the rug it will CONTINUE to pee and poop there--SO you have to keep it from peeing/pooping on the rug! hence the need for a doggy crate, which you keep the puppy in 20+ hours a day--and let him out every 2-3 hours to eat, pee, poop, play, etc. Puppies sleep aboput 18-20 hours a day. Google "Cratetraining" to learn how to do this. Otherwise your puppy, if left to run free, will pee and poop anywhere and everywhere--it is like bringing home a baby infant from the hospital and NOT putting diapers on the baby--It has NOT learned how to "hold it" and will pee and poop at any time, and any place.
By 'cratetraining' you are teaching the puppy to 'hold it' because they normally will NOT pee and poop where they sleep. Since they sleep in the crate, they normally will njot pee and poop in the crate. You let them out every 2 hours, and boy will they need to pee almost immediately! So have Piddle Pads down, so they can 'go' as soon as you letthem out of the crate.
Make SURE that the landlord permits dogs! Most do not.

A bowel obstruction is definitely life threatening.
I'm glad to hear that you are keeping on top of things! : )
Surgery is always a last resort but most dogs recover well. It depends on the amount, if any, damage has been done to the bowel & they can't tell that for sure till they get in there.
It's important to follow any post op instructiovs very carefully.
That would include a soft bland diet, antibiotics & cage rest for awhile.
My dog had to have surgery after eating a sock when she was younger & she did very well after the surgery.
Best wishes, Dear!
Actually breeders do not release their pups at 15 days old.Why are you getting him so young? Beware of this transaction. But on the note that you may have the puppy's age wrong and mean 15 'weeks' then here is some advice........ if you feed him 3 times a day he will 'at least' potty 3 times a day, but chances are more times than that/Little puppies seem to go alot. And they tinkle pretty much every time they get a drink of water. But they must eat and drink.Being in an apartment you can train him to puppy pads and he will use them once trained. It is alot more sanitary than using just the carpet or floor. My puppy uses puppy pads and is doing very well with them. If you need advice on how to use the pads repost and many of us can help you.
But a word of wisdom..........15 days is to young to leave it's mommy and the puppy will not fare well this young. I sure hope this is just a typ-o. If it is a legit 15 day old puppy something is wrong with this picture.This is NOT a good idea.

Unless you are prepared to feed a 15 day old puppy every 2 hours around the clock and you know how to stimulated it to eliminate, the pup will die if you take it from its mother. A 15 day old puppy will not live being fed just 3 times a day.
In most places it's illegal to give away or sell a puppy under the age of 8 weeks. Who is the world is letting you take hom a 15 day old puppy? Clearly someone who should never breed dogs.
House training will be the least of your worries.

15 days old is way to young to be away from the litter/ mother. It is not recommended in some states illegal to sell a puppy before 8 weeks old, that is just two weeks old which you will have to bottle feed and stimulate the puppy to have a bowel movement still.
You are not dealing with a good breeder by any recommendations, it can be hard but you need to walk way you are most likely dealing with a puppy mill. http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/pupp...
report this breeder to anyone and everyone willing to listen.

You are not likely to even keep this pup alive if you try and get it at 15 days old.
They need to be 8 weeks old before leaving mum and litter and he will need feeding far more than 3 times a day at this age.

Dry foods that have the highest ratings.
And if you contact some of the companies that you can get near you before buying, quite a few will be willing to send a sample size and coupons :p
