What can I expect from a 2 week old puppy?

2 week old puppies will often have their eyes fully open, or at least partly open. Ears open at this point too, so your puppy will begin to hear. The Labrador puppies in this picture are two weeks olds. Two weeks old and the puppies eyes are now open!

Can 5 day old puppies hear?

Puppies are born with closed eyes and ears. They cannot see and can hear very little, if at all. Yet they are able to make noise, which sounds like high pitched squealing. They have no teeth at birth and are unable to walk.

How can I tell if my 3 week old puppy is deaf?

See if the puppy jumps or shies away as you approach him. Hearing-impaired puppies are easily frightened, because they can feel your footsteps approaching but can't hear the direction of the movement. If the puppy cries or ducks away when you approach from behind, he may be deaf.
