Also, it is a big risk for a police department to spend tons of time and money on training a dog with an unknown background. Imagine if when that puppy turns 2, all sorts of health problems come out. There goes all of that time and money that went into training.

A vet that is experienced with palpation can feel the pups right around this time.

You can't just give dogs to any group that does 'good' things with them. Great in theory, but you haven't thought this out. You've put too many human emotions into a pregnant dog.

I hope you have a grand or more put aside in case she needs an emergency c section, and that you are willing to keep an entire litter of puppies if you can't find them homes.

You cant just go to the police training schools and say "here is a GSD". The dog has to fit a profile, they have to be very drivey, and most GSDs wont pass.

Same with service dogs except they have to have different qualities. Most dogs wont pass this either.

It would be like saying a sheep rancher will take any border collie. Not true, they have to fit the profile and most dont.

I wish you luck and PLEASE spay/neuter them BEFORE they leave for their new homes. INclude the price in the adoption fee. Spay/neuter contracts dont work all of the time.

Sure they can, but how many bitches have you seen that look pregnant when the time is right for palpation?

Not to mention the time off from work, whelping supplies, having a vet who you can count on for help 24 hours a day (a c-section at an emergency vet clinic can easily go from the $1,000-1,500 range). After that, there are the costs of vet visits for mom and pups, food... and being responsible for finding good forever homes for the puppies.

I know it's hard not to anthropomorphize animals... but humans and animals are completely different. I read somewhere that only 25***37; of all dogs are in their forever homes. Are you ready to take on the responsibility of bringing puppies into this world and assuring yourself that the homes they end up in are permanent ones?

I'm sorry to be so pessimistic, but we have an extreme overpopulation of dogs in this country.

Amazing how much food and vet care $3000 can buy for dogs in a shelter.

Sorry, I'm bitter. I just can't see bringing puppies from unknown backgrounds into this world when so many need homes.
