whats the normal timeline if a dog gets pregnet

Postby importracer_ky » Sun Jan 01, 2006 5:04 am

my friend gave me a female pitbull.she came in heat so i locked her up in the kennell but some how she mange to get on her house and jump over the kenell.well my neigbor called and said my dog was loose and when i went out around back low and behold there she was knotted up with my male pit.now im clueless on when they mate does it take more then once or should she be fine.she is now locked in the kenell with a new metal roof on it so she cant get out.whice if she is pregnet im not to worried because her and the pups would get the best care from the vet and my family loves the breed so there would be plenty of good homes.

Pregnancy lasts about 63 days. You can get her spayed right now, despite the possibility of a pregancy, and not add more puppies into the world.

She is probably pregnant, and as suggested, you should get her spayed immediately. Whatever homes you might think you would have, would probably fall through at the last minute.

No, it can happen the first time they tie. It depends on where she is in her cycle.

DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT!!! If she can't climb out, or dig out, she can still force her way out. Bulldogs are incredibly athletic and powerful dogs. If there's a way, she'll find it.

If you live in an area where you can have multiple dogs, AND be able to provide for them properly (worm at 2 wks, 3 wks, 4 wks, 6 wks, VACCINATE at 6 wks, worm at 8 wks, VACCINATE at 9 wks, worm at 10 weeks, and VACCINATE at 12 weeks {you can worm again at this time too, if needed}) then okay.. Also, for the vaccination, I would strongly suggest using a High Titer vaccine put out by Pfizer. DO NOT USE AN OFF BRAND OF VACCINE!!!! Spend the extra money and order a case (25 vials) still sealed from the manufacturer, from a REPUTABLE place and have it shipped Same Day (if possible) or at the latest Next Day delivery ON ICE. Don't trust your neighborhood feed store for this.

why are you breeding these dogs anyway? it's not like there's a shortage of pits already. and with them being banned all over the place, what's the point???

Look at his other post though. How many would be truly concerned about their female not having a heat cycle if they didn't NEED that heat cycle for something?

sorry, i had read all the posts and it seemed to me that the breeding was intentional. plus this comment above:

when they mate does it take more then once or should she be fine


which i intrepreted to mean that being pregnant after a single opportunity was "fine".....

no i dont intend to breed i was just worried that she could have some infection or something wrong health wise .just wanted to know was it normal for some dogs to go like that.

as far the other ? about bredding the other female she got out of the kenell.

yes i have 2 females i started out with my male.and when i seen the brown female my wife feel in love with her so i got her.she stayed indoors until she started chewing everthing in the house up.and as far as the other female i knew a guy who breed her then after he sold all the pups he no longer wanted her so me and my father in law took her.i would rescue more pitbulls if i had the chance.i love the bred and a all around dog lover.

then i don't understand..... i mean, you have three adult, pet-quality pits and none of them are speutered. and now one might likely be pregnant. your local shelter is packed to the roof with "accidental" puppies--don't add to the problem and get her spayed asap.

If you love the breed and are an all-around dog lover, then spay the dog that was just accidentally bred, and immediately speuter the other two.

A chewing problem is often easily remedied by redirection and crate training when you're not home, and there are lots of folks here at PBF who can tell you how that's done, or direct you to information resources about it, so you can make your dogs indoor animals again. :thumbsup:

here's the pit bull breed-specific legislation they're looking at in KY.

http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.p ... t=kentucky

if you're not in KY, just do a search in the "pit bull press" section to see if there is any in your neighborhood. or check out www.understand-a-bull.com.

they're being allowed in fewer and fewer places--which is why you keep hearing "spay" and "neuter" repeatedly. they're over-represented in the shelters and chained in backyards across this country. if we don't reduce the numbers voluntarily and become ambassadors of the breed, the politicians will make the decision for us.

i hope you understand my point.....

Lucky you.Never heard of plenty of good homes for pit bulls here.Plenty of folks who get these dogs as cute puppies and then dump them when they become high maintenance.Also plenty of irresponsible people who keep intact dogs and then wonder about an accidental litter.
"It was an accident..".Right.
If someone decide to own 3 intact animals there better not be any accidental litter.Neuter/ spay=no accidental litter.Simple.
