Guessing the Age of a Dog, Puppy or Adult?

Got a new, young, furry love in your life? This is the place for you to ask all of your questions-big or small! Just remember that you are receiving advice from other dog owners and lovers... not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a vet or behaviorist! Most important is to remember to have fun with your new fur baby.

We finally have a new boy joining the family next week. I'm curious if anyone knows how to make some educated guess on the age of a dog with no history. He's about thirty pounds, bully features with the shoulders and frog butt. True Staffordshires tend to be compact and AmStaffs are a bit bigger and more leggy like Sophie. He's also noticeably underweight, it'll be funny if after eating good for awhile he turns into a moose. I'm thinking he's a puppy from the soft pads and pretty teeth, I don't know. Any thoughts?hamster dancehamster dancehamster dancehamster dance

A good vet will give you a reasonable guide.

They see them all the time and are usually pretty good at the guesses.

Good Luck and enjoy the Boy !
