    My puppy's tongue is almost always a little out, is this normal?



    He looks super cute with it sticking out, but I am wondering if it's normal?

    Does he have his front teeth?

    It looks like they are growing out. He's 8 weeks old.

    He may just have lost a few teeth, wait a while and see if he's able to keep it in his mouth once his teeth are all filled in haha.

    At eight weeks old I wouldn't put too much thought into it. Different body parts grow at different rates. Similar to a puppy having ears too big for its body, sometimes they have to grow into the ears so they are more proportional. Similar thinking here, let your pup grow a little more, you'll be fine.

    As long as your puppy can retract its tongue into his/her mouth there is nothing to worry about.

    Hope this helps, John from ******

    My boyfriend had a yorkie and her entire life her tongue stuck out a little bit. She was fine and lived a long healthy life so I don't think it is anything to worry about.
