UM yeah! I'm also against abortion for humans but there is a BIG HUGE difference between humans and dogs Dogs get put to sleep everyday because there aren't enough homes and the shelters are so over crowded. If you are ready for all the work ahead of you then good luck but I would terminate it, that's up to you Just think that this litter of pups is going to be taken away from all the other pups in shelters waiting for homes.........

Alsatian= GSD Never heard of them being called that before and I grew up with GSD's all my life!

From someone who has just walked in your shoes (my bitch whelped about 4 weeks ago) I can say it is a ton of work, worry, vet visits, money and stress. I would have spay/aborted in a heartbeat if I could have. I couldn't because it would have comprimised Shortys health since she was too far along. To me, there is nothing wrong with spay/abort. When you think about all the unwanted shelter puppies/dogs and the ones running wild it's just not right to bring more into the world if you can prevent it.

I want to wish you luck on whatever you decide to do. Some questions you should think about is:
If you can't place the puppies, what are you going to do with them?
Are you going to alter them before they go or make a contract that says the new owners are responsible for that?
Are you willing to accept the pup back if it doesn't "fit" the new owners?
Just remember, those puppies are your responsibility until the day they die. Are you willing to go the extra mile?
Are you going to charge and adoption fee or just "free puppy" them?
Are you willing to visit the people who are intersted to see how they are, how they live, other animals?
Are you willing to have these people in your home so you can see how they interact with the puppy?

Good luck!

I completely agree. Children do not end up in shelters, and they are not put to sleep.

I would abort the litter as well... there are so many puppies out there in need of homes, and you do not know the background and history of the parents.

People put too many human values onto dogs. It is the reason many people freak on line breeding, they see it as incestuous even when there are cases where it is of value. Often the same thing happens when discussing terminating pregnancy in animals.

They aren't human, and in many cases would have been a better solution if still viable.

Well in answer to your question RedyreRottweilers,she was looking a bit chubby and I took her to the vets to ask how she'd gotten so big so soon,if i should change food ect... and he told me she was expecting.
I might go and contact some family tomorow to see if they're interested,and my friends family are really keen on having one.

As for the abortion idea,thanks,but no thanks.If the puppies were ill or putting the moms health i'd abort the pregnancy ASAP but killing them before they'd had a chance to live just beacuse they're not perfect,im sorry but i just can't agree to that,no offence,but its just my opinion.Don't take it to heart,I don't want to start an argument.

If I can't find them homes I'll put them in guide dog and police dog training,they're always looking for dogs to train there.

I may have missed this, but you still have not told us how old and what breed she is

Well I sure would like a referral to this vet, since I don't know of ANY vet who could ascertain a bitch in whelp at 30 days/4 weeks except by ultrasound.

Working ability and temperament is inherited. Police departments and guide dog schools either import dogs already trained from strong working back grounds, or purchase dogs bred expressly for that purpose here in the US.
