Unhappy Things not looking good for possible new addition

Now I guess she might be pregnant. My bf found out today from his cousin that she accidently let her male chi mix get together with her. My bf told her from the beginning that he wouldn't take her if she was pregnant. You'd think she'd try to be a little more careful! Now I don't know what to do. We were going to pick her up next weekend. We just don't have the time, the money, or the experience to deal with a pregnant dog. I just want to cry... There is a Min Pin breed specific rescue near us so maybe they could help. God, I'm just so frustrated!!


For anyone who's lost this is my first thread

I wish you could, would help with my past experience if i could, at least u know you could place the puppies in good homes with your chazzer friends help. Since she is already in the condition you could have the joy of being puppy parents. I adore newborns of anykind but do not bring them into the world for my own satisfaction. With a little dog and usually small litters it wouldn't be that much work, not like a lab with 12 baby gates don't work against that kind of puppy force.

I would really like to take her, but I know I wouldn't have the money for an emergency c-section if something went wrong. Especially after Joey's ordeal this summer. I also have absolutely zero experience with pregnant dogs, or even unneutered dogs. All the pets in my family have been fixed. I'm just so torn. I really want to help her.

you could have her spayed--and not have the litter.

You could still take her. Just have her spayed.

Are there a lot of risks with that? And how long can you wait before it's too late? The earliest we'd be able to pick her up is next weekend. So she'd be a week and a half along before we'd be able to get her to the vet.

I think that would be okay. My understanding is that spaying a dog while she's pregnant is no more risky than the pregnancy itself. But I'm no breeding expert. Perhaps you could ask on the Breeding Ground section of the forum.

it takes 62 days for gestation so they would be fetuses at this point, but not very far along. That would be the best course of action. The world does not need more puppies right now, no matter how beautiful they are. And your right, an emergency csection would be expensive.

The spay is not harder. The cost is slightly more. I agree it would likely be the best course of action.
