About Puppies

Puppies spend the overwhelming majority of their days sleeping. They are born without teeth and it takes about a month for them to get their first set of teeth.

Puppies are born without all of their senses working. A newborn puppy cannot hear or see until they are nearly 2 full weeks old! Most puppies don’t open their eyes until after this initial 2 week period.

Fortunately puppies are born with their sense of smell. It is their noses that allow them to find their way back to their mother!
