We are not Vets so please if you are really concerned take her to your Vet. My opinion is that she is dreaming...puppies dream quite a bit and they will twitch and their little legs will seem like they are running after bunnies... they also get the hiccups ...but, if you have concerns that it is something more serious please, take her in.

Welcome to pets, if you have some pictures of her doing this it would also help, we love pictures here....patti

My friends pitbull x that I used to babysit was extremely twitchy and whimpery when she slept...In fact his sister wouldn't babysit her it scared her too much, thought she was having seizures!!! She lived to the ripe old age of 16

It would be a good idea to take a video of it to show your vet. It is always a good idea to get a check-up of a new puppy to make sure she's healthy, and if she's due for vaccines you can get that done at the same time.

If this is worrying you, I second the taking a video to a vet idea... but it really sounds like she is dreaming
