I wouldn't worry just yet. Sometimes the new teeth have to come in to push the baby teeth out. If it starts to look like the baby tooth is rotting, or you see infection then i'd worry.

i'd agree, as long as he doesnt seem to be in pain or stopping him eating or anything. i hope they sort themselves out soon. :O)

I agree as well. My puppy had her teeth until she was around 7months old. Give your puppy some ice cubes and let them eat them. It will numb any pain, and the ice cube being hard will help loosen up the teeth. Plus, puppys love ice cubes!!!

Alot of times, the clinic I worked for, they would see if they had them and then take them out when the pup got neutered/spayed that way it's a one time deal for both

This is not from personal experience or because I work for a vet, but I would take him in to be seen and see what the vet says...yes, sometimes the adult teeth come in before the baby teeth fall out, but sometimes, baby teeth need a little help too. I'd personally have him checked out just to be on the safe side.

This might be of some help. I personally would call my vet and see what they say, then probably give it several weeks if they're comfortable with you doing so.

i'm glad to hear that. I'm sure the others will soon follow. My lab went through this and they all fell out within a week.
