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.

how much do they weigh and how many are in the litter? Mine are born around 14-18 oz, and by 1 week are closing in on 2
pounds.

I hadn't thought about weight helping determine how old, great input, thank you. They will be checked by a vet today and get weights, etc. There are 10 puppies.

They weigh 12 oz up to 1.25 lb. We think they are about 4 days old. Mama is doing a good job, they all have full bellies and are content. We have a fabulous puppy foster.
