She could be spayed. Be prepared for it to cost a bit more because they will want to do the bloodwork prior and spaying a bitch close to a season, in season, or newly pregnant is a bit more difficult.

It can be done, and in this situation...I would definitely consider it. the risks due to anesthesia would be the same spayed now or later...so that's not really an issue.

How long since she might have been bred? There IS a "mis mate" shot that can be given within 72 hours of a breeding that will prevent a litter, BUT it also extends the season so that's more days to watch like a hawk

personally id take her and opt for a spay/abortion. its only as invasive as a regular spay, it just might be a little more expensive due to the adortion side of things...

it seems like it would be the best course of action, not only for you to be able to take her without worry, but for HER saftey as well.

good luck!

You might contact the rescue and tell them the situation and ask if they have a foster home that will take care of mama & babies and allow them to adopt the babies out, they would probably give you mama back once her babies were weaned. It would be worth a shot.

Most of the time rescues have a very easy time adopting out puppies too so you wanting mama probalby wouldnt upset them too much. They might ask that you pay to get her fixed though...

Or as everyone else suggested, take her to the vet & have her spayed right now.

It's sad that abortion seems to be the most popular choice here for her...

But maybe it's best..

Ugh.....some people are so frustrating!! Well now I guess the cousin is not very happy about us fixing the dog when she's pregnant. I'm sorry about the puppies, but I would not be able to handle it if something happened to her while giving birth. I wish she'd just understand that after what I've been through with Joey this summer, any risk is too much of a risk in my mind. That doesn't make me a bad person does it?

Thank you Baxter'smyBaby! Most people/coworkers I've talked to think I should just take her and let her have the puppies so I can sell them. I'm glad that I have people to talk to here that understand my point of view.
