Yes, the stickies have tons of info!

I'm wishing the best for this poor dog and her pups. She's still a puppy herself.

Take her to vets' asap. They will see her sooner if you explain current situation. While she may be young, it is very, very unlikely that she's just 6 months of age. That would mean she became pregnant at 16 weeks of age. The vet really should check her out, her current physical condition and her actual age, before Fiday! Good luck!

she has not gotten back to me all day, I'm worried Shorty may have started giving birth, I hope all goes well and she is prepared. If the dog does not get to the vet before she gives birth, they will all go after. She is just going by the age her brother told her, he got her first but was beating her. When the person who has her now got her, she was already pregnant. Thanks for all your help!

Let us know !!! If the pup wasn't checked for worms before breeding .. chances are the pups will have them . I hope she's put the Mom on puppy food and giving extra calcium .

She took Shorty to the vet yesterday and there are 7 pups. One was not moving so he was either dead or sleeping. She found out more info on the dogs age and she is actually 8 months. The vet said she is in false labor which is normal for puppies when they are pregnant so young. I told her about puppy food and calcium (should it be a pill or should she grind egg shells or put bone in). I was also wondering what brand of food to suggest, I know what most of the good foods are but I don't know which ones come in puppy food. I also asked what breed the dogs are mixed with (if she knows) and if anyone is interested in a Husky mix I'm sure she would be willing to talk to you or interview you to see if you are right for one of her pups. I'll keep everyone updated. Thanks for your help!

*sigh* that is a BIG relief! Thanks for the update Max!

Hope all goes well!

also, on the food, since she is a large breed, you could just do Innova Large Breed Puppy.

At least she has time to get better prepared ..... You might suggest getting " How To Raise A Puppy You Can Live With " ( Rutherford and Neil ) to her ...a waelth of information . Through Amazon she'll get it cheap and in a couple of days.
