  • The only dog I know of that has issues giving birth is the French Bulldog. Call your vet and ask.

  • Any dog giving birth has the potential for problems. Just because the dog is tiny dosnt mean she will have problems. What will be, will be. If she is preggo and has trouble with the delivery you just take her to the vet.

  • Call and talk to your vet. Our Westie had puppies when I was a kid. It was amazing for us to watch. Get your kids involved. It's a great experience.

  • Any dog can have a troublsome time with birth just like women.I would tae her to the vets so they can take a look at her. If she is pregnant I would make sure take her in for check ups. Do you know what kind of dog she may have bred with? Knowing that may determan if she will have large puppies. Keep in mind she can have 1-5 on average, a litter.

  • We had a miniature schnauzer growing up that got pregnant by a Rotweiler!! She pulled through it fine, and had the most adorable puppies. If she is so small it's going to be harder for her to have gotten pregnant by a really big dog, and that's when you really have to worry. Ask your vet but it should all be ok.

  • she could be pregnant by one of my MILs miniaturen dachshunds as well so atleast i know its not a bigger dog. I plan to take her to the vet if she has complications I was just wondering if it was common for small dogs to have problems. Thanks everyone (:
