There were only two of them turned over to the animal shelter. I'm speculating they sold the other puppies before Christmas. There's no way to know how many were in the litter.how many were in that litter?? It is possible they are 8 weeks but would not be from a small litter in that case... this sort of 'breeder' who'd turn a litter over wouldn't have started them on kibble at normal time since mama will stop cleaning at that point and from a work standpoint would not want that... so if mama were supporting litter's growth for a longer than normal time, it is possible pups will be smaller than normal. What teeth are in? And how 'in' are they? That's a better indicator than physical size given history. If litter were >/= 8, the puppy is not 8 weeks old. 7 at most likely 6....
Took me a while to get back to this thread too. Thanks Robin, hopefully the rescue puppy isn't really as young as I thought.I took pics yesterday best I could of a 6 week 3 day old pup's teeth. Not as good as your pics, but I do think your pup is older than this puppy based on how much incisor is out of the gum. Took me FOREVER to find this thread! I would have posted this yesterday but could not find the thread, I guess we have to write down the name of the thread to ever find it again if we want to contribute something. HTH.
