    I am so glad that I believe in spaying your females, unless you know what your doing. I didnt even have a clue that things like that can really happen.... WOW great article.

    Anything can happen, my vet knows when i have a litter coming i call and get oxytocin for the bitch just in case a tube feeding kit. But i buy my shots also there and he is usually pretty good about not bringing in a bitch for it. The other vet up there isnt, when it was snowing and i couldnt get out of the driveway for two days i was gunna walk up there to get it and she refused to send me home with it until i brought the pups and bitch up there!

    but seriously, if this scares you, you shouldnt be breeding, as a breeder you should be prepared no you should almost plan on having at least a pup 4 months or longer and should actually have a good portion of homes already found before the litter is even born. It should never be about money or a spur of the moment decision, as a breeder it should always be 100% about the health and safety of the pups from the time the breeding is planned to long after the dog leaves your care.

    oh and I dont know if its just a difference in vets or a difference in how severe the prolapse but Ive had a female prolapse, the vet didnt have to remove anything but the dog did have to undergo expensive surgery to put her right side in again and sew her "opening" up tighter so it wouldnt fall back out. this happend at first heat and she had to be fixed to prevent it from happening again.

    2) You sell a puppy to an acquaintance. The next time you see them you ask how the puppy is doing. They tell you that it soiled their new carpet so they took it to the pound

    Every one have they'r own opinion, no one mention that most of the time the birth goes just fine, but you sure should know what your are doing.
    I have a rescue dog, a mix and my thousands of dollars pitbull !
    Some people pay big money for the look of a centain dog, PERIOD !
    Just like some people shop at Guess, waltmart etc.... and others in the God will store !
    I just dont like when people try to put things so over the top, why not mention that ... it maybe just FINE !
    Make sure that you will be able to provide to your dog, educate your self, and have a good vet.
    And watch out because your dog can be hit by a car and bleed to death, get into a dog fight at the dog park and die as well, or while getting fixed .... not take the anesthesia so well and die too !!!
    But yes we have too many dogs at the pound, so see what you can do to help !

    Crap, I totally forgot about posting in this thread.

    I failed to inform you all when doing so that I was only about 8-10 years old when my dog had those litters that I mentioned previously.

    Having her spayed wasn't something I knew anything about, but I completely understand your frustration and concern.

    If I had known better then, it wouldn't have happened.
    Because of my preaching, my parents also know better and all of the pets they own now (except the moma dog, who is far passed the age of conception) are spayed. :)

    Sorry for the confusion.

    This is a great thread. :)

    I have two APBT's and both arent fixed. im in the military and our vetenary takes care of both military and civilian dogs. and the waiting list is insanely long. i put them on the list when i got both my pups. well needless to say im thinking my 11 month girl daisy is pregnant with my 5 month old boy dukes pups. what sort of test or things can i look for at home to see if she is infact pregnant before i take her to the vet?

    here are a few reasons i think shes pregnant.

    1. she started her heat about a month ago.
    2. her nipples look long & are getting puffy around the nipple.
    3. everytime we let her out to piss/poop she looks into the house sad/depressed.
    4. today she didnt want to come out her crate (wife says she might be nesting is she is pregnant) only todays she did this.
    5. despite all the training we have been doing since we got her she is starting to not listen.

    should i be worried that she might be pregnant or are these common signs of her comming off her period? ive owned APBT's before....but she is the first female we have had. my wife wanted a female dog despite all the arguments ive brought up of this possibly happening, and how we wouldnt have to worry about this with a male dog. now its happend and need help.

    If you believe she is pregnant, bring her to the Vet, and if she is, have them to a spay/aborted. If she isn't, then just have them spay her.

    Also, did you keep her away from your male while she was in heat? Did you see them tie? If you kept them apart, then she might just be having a false pregnancy.

    Yeah I kept them away as much as I could. While she was in heat i had them tethered away from each other whenever I wasn't able to keep and eye on them. And even now since her vagina look sort of swollen to me still......but I never seen him penetrate her. I'm hopeing it's just a false pregnancy. I love puppies, but I'm not a BYB and have no desire to be one, and don't want to abort these babies....but that's what's gonna have to happen.

    What can ya do? You can spay/abort and leave the breeding to the people who know what they're doing.

    Well said Gladriel! :)

    I still think this thread is great. I actually used it to convince someone not to breed their female. :D

    I was debating on writing/proposing a sticky for the General Dog Discussions section about BYBs. Just about the practice in general, where dogs come from and where they end up.

    What do you guys think of that?

    At least you are responsible about it!
  15. Please spay/abort. A husky/pit bull mix will be nearly impossible for 99.9% of the population to handle. If they even end up being stable, temperament-wise. Not a good mix.

    I am SO glad this post was made, and yes, I realize it's quite old. There is another forum I am on where the majority of the mentality is "my female has a uterus, your male has nuts...let's breed!" It doesn't matter about papers or any health concerns, etc.

    I cross-posted this to that forum.

    P.S. Thanks to this post, the forum on which I had posted it will be revamping their "sales" section for dogs and puppies. It won't prevent the "breeders" from posting on other sites, but it certainly makes a stance against BYBers and the like.

    Couldn't agree more!! I wish people would read this before they decided to "breed"!
    There's so much overpopulation I really wish people would spay/neuter and rescue :]]]
