Default When do Shihtzus get their teeth?

My 8 week old Shihtzu still doesn't have any teeth! I see them through her gums but far from coming through, I have never had a puppy with no teeth.
Anyone else have a puppy with no teeth?

All puppies start loosing their teeth at around 4mths to 1 year for the last ones.

You mean that she has no teeth at all?
If this is the case,i would ask the vet cos this is totally abnormal.She should have puppy teeth at 8 weeks

No idea about Shih Tzu's. If you are concerned call your breeder. I always thought pups had their teeth by then.

that is very odd, my basset mix got his adult canines in while his puppy ones were still in place, he walked around for a good 3 months with 8 canine teeth, but the puppy ones eventually loosened and fell out, but having no teeth at all at that age is not good, i would get him to the vet and figure out what is going on.
