There are always animals outside of the normal thinking, so this is NOT gospel. Generally, if they have hair when born, they will survive. Many of them often die around the time they should have been born, however....Usually after 8 months they'll make it. As for useful, no guarantees at any point, of course. If the lower incisors are present when born, better odds.
