bred dog before bleeding

my dog has been in her heat for about 2 weeks now. this past monday, they tied,and again on wednesday. All of this was done with only ‘spotting’. and today(friday) she began the full bleeding cycle. Could she be pregnant or not ?

Answer #1

did I say this was the first heat ? NO. this would be her 6th,nice try.

Answer #2

Its not breeders that get blamed, its backyard breeders that decide it will be fun to breed their dog when they have no idea what they are doing. Like I said, if licensed breeders were the only ones breeding dogs there wouldn’t be animal overpopulation.

And no not all dogs are mutts. I have seen purebred boxers get put down with my own eyes. Mutts are only about half off the dogs in shelters. I have seen pomeranians, huskies, poodles, retrievers, labs, boxers, bulldogs, shetties, german shepherds and the list goes on of purebred dogs I have seen get put down. Perhaps you just don’t see high traffic areas like cities where we get dogs from every walk of life and of every breed. I didn’t tell you to go to a shelter, I told you to go to a shelter and watch what happens when a poor animal gets put down for no reason. When you have to see the betrayal and fear in their eyes before a perfectly healthy young dog gets killed. There is just no way you can defend backyard breeders when you understand that these animals are getting slaughtered for no reason.

Yes it is the owners fault for not spaying and neutering their dog which is why we are saying that graceg86 should! Her dog isn’t spayed and she is just going to add to animal overpopulation if she breeds her dog. Most people choose to breed their dogs at home, most dogs don’t just run around the neighbor hood and get knocked up.

And most mutts aren’t in shelters because their owners can’t find homes, the dogs are abandoned for no reason more than they don’t want the responsibility anymore. It is because there are way too many animals in the world and their are not enough people to take care of them all. Yes, this is the owners fault for being irresponsible and abandoning their dog but you can’t fix it by educating the owners you have to go to the root of the problem which goes directly back to backyard breeders. The animal population needs to be placed under control so that animals aren’t murdered in shelters everyday to do this you have to stop hobbiest breeding and backyard breeders. All pets need to be spayed and neutered.

Answer #3

I say that animals are overpopulated and you call me ignorant? Are you serious? Its pretty obvious who the ignorant one is here. What I’m saying isn’t “propaganda” its real life. Backyard breeders are the main reason for animal overpopulation! If reputable breeders were the only ones producing puppies there wouldn’t be animal overpopulation.

How about you go volunteer some of your time in a high kill shelter cory31 and help walk the dogs in to the euthanasia room, then come back here and call me ignorant. Give a dog (many of them purebreds!) its last pat on its head as you watch the life drain out of its eyes, terrified, all because someone like graceg86 decided it would be fun to breed her dog just for the sport of it and then half the puppies ended up in a shelter when they grow up and the owners loose their job or they decide to move and can’t take their dog with them, or they are just too hard to train and they don’t have the time.

You would be surprised how many purebred dogs are in shelters and rare types too! I know first hand what it is like in these shelters and I have seen it with my own eyes. You are the one that needs some education cory31 not the other way around.

6 to 8 million animals are killed EVERY YEAR in shelters. That number is incomprehensible to me and it should be to you too. Why would you want to add more to that number, its high enough as it is!

Answer #4

I have been to my local shelter several times, and every time I go in there, I’ve yet to see a purebred. The majority of dogs you find in shelters are someone’s mutts that they couldn’t find homes for because the OWNER failed to spay/neuter their dog. Why is it the breeder’s fault for the overpopulation??? Isn’t that the owner’s fault for not spaying/neutering their dog before letting it run loose around the neighborhood?? It’s also due to the owner’s not being responsible, and if they have to move, or if the dog isn’t what they wanted, they take it to the shelters. What has that got to do with breeders??? I’m so sick of breeders being blamed for everything!

Answer #5

Why are you breeding your dog?

Are your dogs registered? Do you have experience in animal medicine and behavior? Or are you just trying to make a quick buck on selling puppies at breeder prices?

It is dangerous to breed your dog if you don’t know what your doing. Your dog could die from this if something goes wrong and you won’t know what to do. Having a litter of puppies isn’t a joke, its a big step and big responsibility and you really need to know what you are doing.

Why breed when there is so much animal over population? Every litter of puppies you produce is leaving many helpless dogs stuck in a shelter that could have been adopted by a loving family that is going to be buying a puppy from you instead. If you really love animals you would be looking at the bigger picture than just your own.

Answer #6

Puppy mills are everywhere and should be shut down. No one should buy a puppy from a pet shop as most of these hapless puppies come from puppy mills where people indiscriminately breed their dogs for money. A repsonsible breeder is following a program designed to improve the breed. They are trying to do things like get rid of certain inheritable faults such as splayed hips or cherry eye or imbalanced bite. They are not trying to just make money. They belong to breeders clubs and know what they are doing. They check out the lineage of the dogs and would never breed dogs that carry some kind of fault. MOst breeders do not breed a dog on the first heat anyway. SHAME ON YOU!!

Answer #7

I realize your question has not been answered, and I’d answer it (if I knew), simply to keep your dog from harm. Since you obviously know nothing about breeding, I’m going to assume you don’t know anything about whelping pups either.

Now is a good time to begin a relationship with a Vet…you very well might need one within the next two months…Get your girl in and have her health checked…and let the Vet know that you are ignorant on the fine points (all points) of bringing puppies into this world.


Answer #8

How heavy is the bleeding? Is this her first time? It can be possible for a female to do this after being bred. I wouldn’t be worried unless it’s heavy–that’s an indication of a possible tear. Just keep an eye on her, and if it doesn’t clear up, I would take her to the vet just for a check. Don’t pay attention to the other posts. They are obviously the ignorant ones here. Especially dulllikeglitter—blaming people who breed on the overcrowding of shelters? Shame on you. If you want to believe that propaganda that’s your problem. People need to start somewhere, and if that’s their hobby, SO BE IT! It doesn’t matter how many dogs are in the shelters (from people NOT spaying and neutering their mutts), people are ALWAYS going to want purebred dogs no matter how much ignorant whining you do (I am speaking directly to dulllikeglitter). Not everyone needs a degree to raise puppies. No degree is going to teach you the hands on experience of what you will learn when they’re born. I wish you all the luck graceg86 and am hoping you have a beautiful litter of babies! Oh–if you need any advice on vaccinations, wormings, etc. of the puppies and at what age, I’ll be happy to oblige! You can add me as a friend if you’d like. On an added note—laskalass–you said “They belong to breeders clubs and know what they are doing.” Who do you think started those breeders clubs anyway? They didn’t just magically appear from nowhere. Just because the parents are researched, does not mean that a problem still doesn’t appear in the litter. Something totally unexpected can show up at any time. Yes, you want to breed a pair that doesn’t have hernias, bad knees/hips, etc. But sometimes, even the best testing doesn’t show you the future of the litter.
