    How can I tell the sex of a 6 week old puppy?

    Basically guys the question is exactly the title. I wanted to find out the sex of a 6 week old puppy and I don't know how. Can anyone direct me to pics or tell me?

    Thanks
    Michelle

    umm... I've never seen a 6 week old puppy... but wouldn't you find out the same way you would an older dog?

    It's easy. The male will have a little penis that is much further forward. When he lays on his back, it almost looks like it is on his tummy.

    A little bitch will have the vulva which is much further back nearer to her anal opening and easier to see from the back if you lift her tail. The vulva is sort of pointed at the end and wider at the base and has a slit running down it.

    The penis on a puppy often has some hairs growing from the end of it.

    Hope this helps.

    I know you are kidding- but I will help.. A male puppy is born with a penis- ie on the belly- a female is not..

    No actually I am not kidding. We were looking at so puppies today. And they all looked to be male. The had what appeared to be a penis with hairs coming from the tip I was pretty well sure they were male but the shelter worker looked and was not sure. First she thought maybe yes they were male then she thought no they were female. So she got me questioning myself too. SO I figured I would ask just to be sure.

    I have not had or been around a puppy so young and of course it is much easier when they are older. I should have taken a pic: I know I sound like a dummy but the youngest dog we ever had was 6 months old. So I figured I would ask.

    Anyway just to let you all know as well. We are adopting a puppy. He appears to be (and we were told by the shelter) a newf X. He just arrived today and we will have to wait awhile before he can come home. Definately 2 weeks maybe longer. When the shelter director comes back on Monday they will let us know.

    Thanks. That's what I thought to begin with but the shelter worker had me all confused. I guess I should trust my instincts more.

    The picture of Zubin showing off his goods is very cute. I thought it maybe harder to tell when they are real little. I know how to tell when they are not itty bitty. But I thought it was somewhat not so evident when they were tiny.

    Pups are really easy to sex right from being born.

    I bet the pups were all male because if there had been females, the difference would have been obvious to anyone. I'm surprised that the shelter worked didn't even know how to sex puppies. Maybe it is something they should be trained to do when working in such a place. After all, they have to rehome dogs and they can't do a good job if they don't even know whether a pup is a dog or a bitch.

    Congrats on getting a new puppy!! That is so exciting! Do you have a name for him/her, or does the puppy already have a name? Boy or girl? Sorry, I'll stop asking so many questions and just wait. LOL I am not a very patient person.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    the shelter worker SHOULD know how to tell the gender. you would think they would. It is easy to tell the gender of a dog..you can see the testicles if you look on his behind. and if you can't see testicles then it's a girl. are they adopting out 6 week puppies, though? I am excited for you and can't wait to see him or her!
