do puppies lose their canine teeth

Customer Question

I have a mixed breed puppy. Ive been told they do lose their front teeth and such...but do they also lose their canine teeth. Oscar (my puppy) has lost his bottom left canine tooth, its a hole as if it was pulled, so i know its not "broke" off. I asked several people myself, no one knew the answer. Thank You for your help. Angie

Puppies do lose their teeth. The canines fall out and are replaced by the permanent canines at 6 months.
