  • You need to take her to the vet. If you don't know the signs of pregnancy and don't really have any clue about whelping and raising puppies you need advice and guidance of a professional. Breeding a dog is not something to be taken lightly.

  • Why doesn't everyone just leave people alone when they have a breeding question. She didn't ask you what you morally thought about the fact her dog might be pregnant. It's none of your business. She just asked for symptoms, not your personal thoughts on the issue. If she wants to breed she CAN. She does NOT have to get the dog fixed to please the likes of you guys. A grown woman should be allowed to mentino he dog is pregnant or might be without having to hear "get it fixed" and such, it's annoying and childish, and it's YOUR views so keep them to yourself.
    To the OP here are some signs of pregnancy
    Decreased Appetite in the first few weeks- a decrease in activity-more of less affectionate-Their nipples increase in size-the abdomen will be firmer-
    I do agree if you think she may be, take her to the vet and make sure she is alright :)

  • it's really hard to tell unless you get an ultrasound which you should do to know how may pups she's having, to make sure they all come out when the time comes.we didn't know our dog was pregnant till like a week before she had them. you'll know when she goes into labor though. she'll start shivering, her back might be hunched, and she'll be restless. good luck oh yeah and be prepared to be up all night because they tend to give birth in the middle of the night

    Who was being overly rude or giving her personal opinions? I asked a question to go from there? Obviously, knowing if the dog was being purposely bred is important. That way she knows a time frame of conception. Not that the poor thing was in the yard and some dude around the corner left his dog out and what not. These things happen ya know?

  • I just get tired of people telling others to get their dog fixed thats all.

  • Well, some people are very irresponsible and I think many people on here have come across more of them than not. I can see why KTMOM, would suggest it (if she did), I have been in a group with her, that I should go back to :-(...and there was some issues with an over abundance of "uh-oh" pregnant dogs. You know the "I put my dog in the yard and she was in heat" or the "I have an intact male and female and the male got the female"

    Answer by OneToughMami at 1:28 AM on Jan. 16, 2009

  • I understand that totally. But, in my case of I have a top line of German Shepherd and I will be breeding her in May for many reasons. However when I take her outside to pee, and the neighbor dog breaks his leash and flies down the road to my house, thats when I can see that the owner of the female dog is not at fault, it's the Male dogs owner that needs to be restrained. If someone puts their female dog in their fenced in yard and another lets their male dog wander around, it's still the fault of the Male dogs owner. I think a lot of people with female dogs in heat or pregnant get too much heat from others.
