How long until you can touch the newborn puppy?
you should leave the puppies for 3-4 hours before you touch them to give the mom time to bond with her pups so she doesn't reject them.
if you are buying one you should wait till it is about three monthes old but if your dog has pups you can touch then straight away but don't upset there mother if she grows back off and she also might eat them to try and protect them just rub the motner and let her know you are not a threat and you don't want to harm them
A newborn puppy will be on it's mother for about the first 6 weeks. This helps to keep it's antibodies up until it has it's first vet visit. It can be started on pablum at about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. Soaked puppy chow is added until about 6 weeks when the pablum is eliminated. The female is weaned slowly from about 5 to 7 weeks. The puppies stay on softened chow and are slowly…
Because it's newborn, you should probably put it with its mother quickly before it starves. But newborn puppies can last up 45 minutes without their mother's milk. Because they have been consuming the food that the mother has been eating, so they're like one fourt full...but they DO need their milk to have their nutritions.
