7 Week old Collie/Heeler Mix Adjustment

My husband and I just got a border collie/blue heeler mix yesterday. He's 7 weeks old and seems to whine a lot even when he's happy and playing. Is this normal or is it something we should have looked into?

Yes, it is normal. This is probably behavior that has been aided by the fact that this is the way that he has received attention in the past. If you ignore his whining it should go away as he gets older. If not, ask your vet when you take him in for his sets of puppy shots. ^_^
