New Puppy Info.

I got a new Jack Russell terrier today, she is 6 weeks old - which is alot younger than my last one was when I got her. I was wondering if anyone here could answer some basic questions for me?

1. How many times a day should I feed her? And how much each time? I dont want her to get into a habit of over eating.
2. What kind of food is best to feed her?

I think thats all for now. I think I've got everything else figured out but any other tips on anything could still be helpful

Why so young? Pups should stay with mom and litter mates until at least 8 weeks, if not longer.
