STAGES OF GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY DEVELOPMENT
All German Shepherd Puppies are born very dark black with their eyes and ears closed. While every litter is different and the size of newborn puppies in greatly depend on the term, number of puppies in a litter and other factors, the average weight of a puppy in our breeding program is around 500 grams - give or take. All puppies are born very hungry and are latching to their mom shortly after birth. At less than a week old, the puppies began to stretch their legs. They also arch their backs when picked up. They crawl more frequently. Around the week and one half mark, their eyes are ears began to open. Their eyes are blue. And they aren’t able to focus immediately. Just not yet!
