1. A puppy is born blind, deaf, and toothless. The eyes of a puppy are closed when they are born, and it takes about 1–2 weeks before they open. Touch is the first sense a puppy experiences. So be very gentle when you pick them up!
2. In the U.S. alone, more than 5 million puppies are born every year.
3. When a puppy is first born, it spends 90% of its life sleeping. And the other 10%? Eating! Not a bad life, huh? In these first weeks, they need a lot of rest so their body can develop and grow. After a few weeks, their sleep hours reduce to around 14 hours per day. This is actually quite similar to a human newborn.
4. When puppies have become fully grown dogs, they need less sleep. On average, a dog sleeps about 10 hours per day.
5. When is a puppy no longer a puppy? A puppy is considered an adult when it reaches the age of one. At what age your puppy reaches maturity depends on its size and breed. Generally speaking, the smaller the breed, the sooner the puppy reaches maturity. For example, a Chihuahua puppy is considered a full-grown dog at about 10 months old. A German shepherd, however, takes about 15 months to fully mature.
