Correct me if I am wrong but I believe dogs only stay pregnant for 2 months. So there is no way she could be 4 months pregnant.

Agreed ^^^ Read the stickies in the this section. Lots of info there

Talk to you vet a LOT about this, making sure you call him when she does go into labor so if you need a c-section FAST he's there for you.

Also once the pups are ready to go to there home make sure you check out places before you just dump a puppy their. Keep in contact with the new owners, want pictures...updates.

I'm assuming it was a private adoption and not from a shelter cause otherwise she would be spayed already I would take her into be spayed ASAP and terminate the pregnancy. It is ALOT of work raising a litter of pups plus time and money.How old is she? What breed? I wish you luck though

Alsation = German Shepherd

Is she four weeks along NOW, or was she four weeks along when you got her a month ago?

If she's four weeks along now, talk to your vet and find out if it's too late to spay her. If it's too late (ie. would be detrimental to her health), then you need to get ready. Read the stickies in this section to learn more about whelping and raising puppies.

I am against the aborting of human children, but with dogs it's different. Children are always wanted, if not by the woman carrying them, then by people who are unable to have children themselves. We don't drop children off at shelters to end up being put to sleep.

But since you are that against it, you have a very big responsibility both to the mom and to the pups. You have a lot of research to do about whelping and raising puppies, and you have to start looking for homes - SCREENING those homes, placing pups on spay/neuter contracts, or even better yet, finding a vet who will do early spay/neuter and having them altered before they leave for their new homes. Choosing to let your bitch have these puppies means that you are responsible for these puppies until the day they die. That could mean 15 years of responsibility....
