Did you remember that there’s a day just to celebrate puppies? If you forgot, that’s okay; accidents do happen in the puppy world. Though pet parents don’t welcome a puppy into their home until the puppy is a couple months old, here are a few facts about newborn puppies in honor of this special day.
According to PetMD:
Puppies can hear a little bit when they’re born, but their ears are still closed until about 14 days of age.
Puppies are born with fur and nails but no teeth. You’ll see their baby chompers around 4 weeks.
At around 4 weeks old, puppies will start to play in groups.
Puppies are born with a blue-gray color to their eyes; expect their true eye color around 10 weeks.
Puppies can’t regulate their body temperature well, so they need to be in an area around 75 degrees.
Newborn puppies sleep about 90% of the day in between feedings.
