I swear, vets like to panic people.

Normally I would have said puppies are teething from 4-7 months. To be on the safe side, I went and looked it up. The two basset books that mentioned teething said it could start as early as 14 weeks, and at "about 4 months". Although a couple of websites I checked said it could start as early as 3 months, most said teething starts around 4-5 months and can last up to 8 months of age.

So unless he doesn't show any signs of losing puppy teeth within the next few weeks, I wouldn't fret about it.

Also, is it possible he's younger than you were told? Your breeder doesn't sound like the most reliable. And BTW are they offering anything for having sold you a defective puppy?
