I can't find any information about what order dogs get their adult teeth in. Does anyone know?

When I got Ben, 3 weeks ago, his front teeth were only just through, but he had what seemed to be a full set of molars at the back. There were gaps between the canines and molars.

Today, I've felt bumps on both sides of his bottom jaw where the teeth next to his canines are starting to come through.

The incisors are now much more obvious, though I don't know if there's more growth to come, and the molars look BIG, certainly compared to 3 weeks ago.

There's no room for any more teeth, including right at the back, so I think these are the last ones.

Any ideas?

He's just started lifting his leg to pee this week if that helps.

Has the dog seen a vet? They can normally guess an age pretty well, but I believe if the dog is done losing teeth he is probably over 6 months
Yes, thanks. She didn't tell me his age, but the shelter put him at about 6 months last month. I thought all their teeth were meant to be through by then though.
