Newborn Puppy Photos From Their First Three Weeks Of Life

Puppies are probably the best medicine for almost anything. So, with the country sweltering under a massive heat wave, we wanted to provide you, dear reader, with some incredible photos of newborn pups to make this week seem totally worth it.

All of the puppies were photographed by Traer Scott and compiled in the book Newborn Puppies: Dogs in Their First Three Weeks. Scott told Vetstreet that catching the cuties in the act was harder than it may seem.

“You can put them in a puppy pile and they wiggle around, but that’s all they can really do,” she said.

If you're looking for an adorable pooch of your own and are ready for the responsibility (because puppies do grow up), take a look at the ASPCA adoption site or Petfinder.com.
