Newborns are born without teeth. Most milk teeth will grow in before a pup reaches his or her new home, as this process is usually complete between the ages of 6 weeks old. By the time a family brings a new puppy into the household, he has all of his puppy teeth.
Then, between the age of 3 and 4 months, the process of teething will begin in which those 28 deciduous teeth fall out and are replaced with permanent, adults.
Most owners to not notice a tooth actually falling out; This is because they are so tiny and many loosen and fall out while the puppy is eating. It is often swallowed without an issue.
The small root of that tooth is absorbed by the adult tooth that pushes up to take its place. Once in a while this does not happen and the lack of this absorption can lead to crooked or overlapping teeth.
The length of time for this to be complete varies quite a bit from dog to dog. In general, you can expect your Pug puppy to teeth up until the age
of 8 months.
