The genetics there could lead to pups so large that they could rupture the uterus. That is a very unnatural size difference. I agree that you need to get her in to the vet to verify that she's pregnant and that she doesn't have either a false pregnancy or begininng pyometra.

....still waiting to know. Why wasnt this dog spayed from the moment she became part of your family? Would have avoided all this worry for you

No point in going over what could have been done in the 1st place, the OP learnt from her mistake and now the dog is spayed and all is good

I know you weren't trying to be mean
Just don't see the point in going over old ground now that all is fixed

I'm not sure where her dog came from, but all shelters don't spay/neuter. I've had my dog for 2 years. I got him as a puppy from a shelter who had us sign a contract to have him neutered at 6 months of age. They gave us a voucher to pay for it, and they called when they thought our vet should have sent the voucher in and hadn't! (We had the neuter scheduled for a few days later).

We got our kitten from a different shelter, and they would not send the kitten home before they neutered him.

yep ive heard of shelters that dont spay/neuter right away but give out a voucher. I find that irresponsible. What if you decide you dont want to alter your dog? Will they take it away?

What if you schedule a spay a months away, dog goes into heat and she becomes pregnant? Now i know that many people will say 'well go ahead and spay/abort anyway' But there are also many people like myself that have been raised to believe abortion is wrong and will not spay the bitch.

Or what if your unaltered shelter pup gets lose and impregnantes 2 or 3 bitches?

Shelters should really change that policy. Ive been to two of our shelters here in Puerto Rico and both spay/neuter before having the pets go home. Some people are too lazy and irresponsible to get it done.
