Breeders/Vets - Guess on age of the Infant puppies turned over to shelter
GRRNT has taken in a mama dog and litter of 10 puppies who were owner surrendered to an animal shelter.
The puppies are clearly "newborn", but I was wondering if someone could give me a guess on how old they might be? Days, a week? Mom had not even been cleaned up and still had dried blood/discharge on her back end.
They are safe in foster care now and will be just fine.
