I have two dogs, my female dog is an old dog - I have no idea how old (I got her from my ex-husband who got her from a friend who got her from a shelter) but by looking at her you can tell she's up there in years so I assumed she was too old to be in heat (granted she is the only female dog I've ever owned). Four months ago I got another dog from my ex-husband because once again he got evicted from his place and couldn't bring a dog to the place he is living now - this new dog is only 9 months old so he was a handful already but he was making progress with being trained, for the last 4 days however he is following my female dog around, humping everything, chewing up my kids toys, chewing pillows, and destroyed three blankets (basically he is chewing up everything my female dog sleeps on). He's also being a total spaz - barking and whining when my female dog hides under the beds (she is a chihuahua/terrier mix and he is a german shepard/pitbull mix). Even when he eventually calms down my female dog will come out of hiding just to taunt him - sticking her butt in his face and then turning around and barking/growling at him when he tries to follow her again.

WOW- some of these Questions really Trip Me Out! OP- are you kidding me? you are going to call someone a Bitch for giving you the Best Advice on how to handle the situation- the answer to your question is about 3 to 4 weeks that a Female is in Heat- that is a pretty long time for your Dogs to drive each other Crazy & to Destroy your house- & when your Female is caught off guard; your Male is going to get ahold of her- it is Not going to be Good b/c a German Shepard/ Pit bull Mix is going to really Hurt your Chihuahua/ Terrier Mix- Get them Fixed at the Low- Cost Clinic- that is the Only way to Avoid this Problem! and the Only Responsible thing to do.......
