This is probably going to sound like a really stupid question so I apologise in advance!
I bought Vega a couple of days ago as a 'black and tan' and to be honest, when I first saw her she was pretty dark but as soon as we stepped out into day light, she actually looks more like a dark blue/grey colour.
I didn't buy her from the breeder so don't have papers that state her actual colour, I bought her from a person who had bought her from the breeder to keep his other dog company but the older dog just kept attacking her. He'd only had her 2 weeks and decided to sell her, so I stepped in and bought her from him. I have copies of mum and dad's KC papers but he said that the breeder told him that "her papers are in the post" - I have no doubt in my mind that I will never see those papers, but that's not important anyway as I only wanted her as a pet
so I was wondering - I'm not being silly in thinking she's a blue and tan?!
My second question, he said she was born on the 17 November 2012, which would make her 10 weeks or so in age. Shouldn't she have a full set of teeth?! I bought my other 2 chis at 8 weeks and they both had all of their baby teeth, but Vega has a few (including her canines) but some are just coming through and others are not there at all. We have a vet appointment tonight anyway to get her checked over but I was wondering if anyone has seen this before or if he was lied to about her real age. At the moment she weighs less than a pound, she is ridiculously tiny, so the thought of her actually being a lot younger than he said she is doesn't seem too far-fetched.
I know that it sounds cazy that I bought her without having all of the background information, trust me when I say it's not a habit of mine. She is so small and frail and he wasn't asking for very much money for her, and with all the puppy mills around the area she lived in I couldn't bring myself to leave the poor little mite there. At the very least I know that I can provide her with everything she needs and all of the healthcare she needs to make sure she is fighting fit for the rest of her life. Let's call it my good deed for 2013
