Day 1 to Week 2
This is an important phase in the life of a tiny baby Beagle. They are born with no teeth, eyes are closed, they are unable to hear and are not able to walk yet. A healthy puppy will gain weight each day....And this should be checked. It is recommended to mark each pup with a ribbon, string or even a dot of white out so that there are no mistakes about who is who...And to weigh each pup each day to ensure that each is growing.
While one will be tempted to want to pick up and hold these adorable little pups, during the first 2 weeks they need almost constant care by their mother (dam).
