Exclamation Help!!!!!

Hi,
I am new to this and have what might be a really stupid question but I am going to ask anyway. I have a female Italiam Greyhound that is in heat. I also have a male puppy (he is 8 months old) that we just had neutered on May 15. I found them connected this morning and I was wondering if there is a possibiltiy that she may get pregnant. A few people that I have talked to said yes and a few people said no.....HELP!!!!! Any answers??????

Thanks alot in advance for any info!!!!

Danielle

Spay her when she's out of heat.

I am asking if there is a possibility if she could be pregnant, not if she needs to be spayed or not.

Why aren't you spaying her? Ask your vet about the pregnancy.

Yes, live sperm can live in the male for a few months.

There is DEFINATELY a possibility.

I'd get her to the vets asap. There is a shot that you can give your female, its like "Birthcontrol" if something like that happens.

Is she a show dog at all??

If not, I'd think of spaying as well Heats are very annoying to have to go through twice a year! Trust me lol Our Female Sheltie, is just finishing her heat cycle now

Did the OP ask "should i spay my dog"???
Answer the question if you reply and then say what-ever else you feel the need to say!!

I don't know much about this but i would say that if the male was "Done" then he cannot produce Sperm??
Therefore no Pregnancy could occur!
I am sure that i will be corrected if i am wrong though

So why won't you spay her if she isn't a show dog? Are you planning to breed her?
