Dog fact – When puppies are born

Puppies are blind, deaf, toothless at birth

Puppies are born with sealed eyelids and ear canals, making them both blind and deaf until they open their eyes at about 10 days to 2 weeks old and their ears a few days after their eyes. They are able to hear and sense light during this time and rely on their sense of smell and vibration to find their mother. Puppies are also born without teeth as they are fed on milk, until they begin weaning onto solid food at between 3-4 weeks of age.
