I don't think lyme's can really be passed that way, and even if it could the pup is probably too young to be symptomatic anyways. A VERY good point for an adult dog that might be limping but probably not the case in our pup here. Lyme is tricky though, so I suppose anything is possible.

Any update from the OP?
