your dogs were being dogs please dont get rid of them. you just have to be very diligant in making sure they dont have the oppurtunity to do it again.

does she know the gentle command? my pups run after the kids and try to "bite" thier butts but they know they have to be gentle with humans so its not really biting as it is just pretend biting if that makes sense

i took my pups out every thirty minutes until about 5 months. it will also help if you feed and water her on a routine. my pups also were gated in the kitchen if i couldnt watch them closely as they got more reliable on pottying i would give them another room .

franky i really think your dog is not 4 months old, especially if her teeth look pointy still . i would be willing to bet shes not older then 10 weeks . you said your vet even said she didnt look 4 months by her teeth
