  • Why did you let her get pregnant with mutt puppies that will be hard to place if you can't afford a vet!!! Sounds really irresponsible. If they got stuck together then she's probably pregnant. Separate her from your kids, don't trust a momma dog. Put her in your tub with some blankets and leave food and water. You don't have to feel babies for her to be pregnant. You shouldn't have a dog if you can't take her to a vet. That's not right. Hope she doesn't need a c section. That lab is way bigger than a brittany.

  • I agree with musicmom. There are plenty of places that offer low cost spays, then this could have been prevented. But now not only do you run the chance of having vet bills for momma dog you're also responsible for the shots for the puppies which can be pricey. There's a good possibility your brittany won't be able to deliver the puppies and will need a c section. What if there are serious complications and you lose your dog because you wouldn't get her fixed.

  • if the male dog "got stuck in her", she's most likely pregnant.

  • Whoo hoo another bunch of puppies brought into the world by an irresponsible owner.

    You do not have to keep her away from your kids, you do not need to put her in a bathtub. Find a box, or a plastic kiddie pool and line in with blankets and so on. Start feeding her puppy food because she needs the extra nutrients in it to start preparing her body for birth. When she gets close to giving birth she will start panting, and nesting. You need to be there with her to help her in case something goes wrong. You will need towels, hot water, string, scissors and a brain. You need to be able to see if she starts having difficulties and you will need money for a csection in case she can't give birth on her own.

  • If really don't give two shits about her to bother making a few phone calls to see if a vet near you offers a discount or a payment plan, surrender her to a shelter where she will find a home and be spayed before she goes to that home.
