How to be sure of the age of the puppy that you buy?

Not to be mistaken on theage of a puppy, just to know different teeth release dates; age can be estimated accurately up to 7 months, time at which the final mouth is full.

The benchmarks for determining the age of the puppy
-Milk teeth: at the puppy canines appear at 21 days, incisors erupt to 25 days (corners), 28 days (terraced) and 30 days (clips). The molars emerge from the third to the fifth week.

-It then examines the wear of the teeth. Pliers level at 45 days, terraced at 3 months, the corners at 4 months.

-Permanent teeth: the eruption takes place at 4 months for grippers, 4.5 months for terraced houses, at 5 months for canine and corners and between 6 and 7 months for molars. At 7 months, the dog has all his teeth.

These indications will help you not to buy an older puppy shown on paper.
