Is she pregnant?

    Hello, my name is David, and I am new to the forum. I have a question about my AmStaff. My family and I have a pure bred 6 yr old AmStaff, and we wanted to have her bred. The male we chose, is a pure bred as well, however he has never been bred before, and had no clue what he was doing. We tried for a week, and he was never able to tie together with my female, but he did shoot his load everywhere several times. I am wondering if it was possible he got anything into her? The reason I ask, we noticed the other day, that her nipples were starting to sag more and they looked as if they were filling with milk. Today, we noticed, she started to lactate...but her temperment never changed, and she has acted normal this entire time. Is it possible she got pregnant? And no, no other dog would have been able to get to her, as she stays inside unless I take her outside for a walk or to use the bathroom. Any ideas?

    Take her to the vet, they will be able to tell you for sure.

    yeah I was trying to avoid that if I could, for now, Im out of work right now, and just dont have the money. I have had some personal problems, and feel bad, because now my dog is going to suffer for it. I may be able to do it next week sometime tho. Is there any other possible way to tell if she may be?

    No, Im not one of those people that got a pit just to breed her and sell the puppies. I am an avid animal lover, and pit supporter.

    She needs to see a vet if she is pregnant anyways. I hope that if she is, everything goes smooth with the pregnancy and delivery. Many complications can happen, and they are not cheap.

    so I have heard. My cousin helps breed pits, and knows a lot about them, and should she be pregnant, he is going to be there with me when she delivers, in order to help, should she need it.

    Well if you have no money and dont want to take the dog to the vet, why on earth did you breed her? I hope you have a backup plan if the dog has complications before, during, or after the pregnancy.

    The only sure fire way to tell if she may/may not be pregnant is to take her to the vet, or just wait until she drops the pups. She could be having a false pregnancy, my friends dog did this after a Chi bred her.

    Well for one you dont have a "pit" you have an Amstaff. Why did you breed her? What accomplishments does she or her mate have? Pretty much what was the purpose of this breeding? Just a question not trying to attack you or anything.

    My advice? Take her in to get spayed.

    This is a very good idea. Take her to the vet and spay/abort the pups, that will help the mother not suffer through an unwanted no veterinary attention pregnancy and stop any and all complications with said pregnancy.

    Even though I HATE the word.....spay/abort. To many unwanted puppies with no good homes out there. Since you are currently not in a financial position to take care of her....imagine what the cost would be of the puppies. To even be a semi responsible breeder all the puppies would need to be wormed, their first shots and dew claws removed....x8 I am guessing. Seriously. Spay/abort....give the care credit or whatever its called a chance :)

    Ugh. :( Go to a vet. How did you plan to pay for the puppies expenses if you are out of work? And the mothers special care, whelping box, prenatal card, vet care and a possible c-section and the cost of puppy food, declawing, registering and getting papers, and check ups, shots and deworming...?

    Lord have mercy on this potential momma...clearly your intentions for breeding her are misguided. I have learned more lessons then I ever thought I would, and I was beyond prepared. I can only imagine how tragic this process had I not been prepared. I know it's tough to hear, but these people are really trying to help you. If you think a spay or spay abort is expensive...then you could be in for a wild ride or the ultimate tragedy due to your selfishness.

    the bitch might be having a phantom pregnancy , it does happen. i would say take her to a vet ! if she is preggas have you homes lined up for the pups (good homes) ? but like others have said ,things can and do go wrong which can be expensive,if you are breeding a litter it is best to have money set asside for any eventuality .

    PLEASE if shes not PREG. dont try to get her preg anymorte.. leave it up to a REALLY good breeder that knows exactly what they are doing. not your cousin or your friend. just leave it alone and love /exercise your dog. maybe enter her into some dock jumping?, weight pulling?? agility? Where are you from? maybe we could help you find some events in your area

    you don't have the cash to take your dog to the vet but you bred her?

    I wonder what was the reason behind the breeding $$$ :rolleyes:

    It amazes me that people don't consider the amount of money that goes INTO breeding... even if you do it absolutely slack, you still have to feed and clean up after everyone. Dog food and cleaning supplies can add up!
