My dog might be pregnant help!!!!

I have an 11 month old mini bull terrier Staffy mix. I think my mini Aussie may have gotten her pregnant. We were trying our best to keep them away from each other until we could get him spayed but he might have gotten to her. He is a very small Aussie and she isnít too small but I am still worried about the size the puppies could be. I donít think my parents have money to pay for a mismate. Her nipples have enlarged and she has gotten a bit fatter. Not only that but she has mellowed out a whole lot. I donít know how far along she is if sheís even pregnant but Iím freaking out because briar is a huge part of our family now and my dad would be heart broken if she passed away because itís his dog. Is there anything to do or anyway to tell if she is pregnant!!!!

She's pretty young to be having a first litter, I'd follow MDdvm's advice and just go and have her spayed within the week.

When was her last heat? Did anyone see the dogs tie (mate)? If she hasn't been in heat recently, and you didn't see them tie, then why do you think she's pregnant?

If you have a solid reason to think that she might, and you simply do not want to get her spayed yet, then the cheapest option is going to be the mismate shot. Puppies are not cheap, even if you don't follow all of Leashes advice for taking care of mom and the pups, raising the litter is not cheap and will be a lot of work. If Briar should run into complications during the delivery or afterwards, or any of the pups runs into trouble, the cost will go up a whole bunch.

The only way to tell if she's pregnant, is an ultrasound and again that is not cheap. If you wait long enough, say around a month you'll be able to visually see if she's pregnant as dog pregnancies last between 58 to 68 days.

Good luck to you and your girl, I do hope that she's not pregnant.

If your parents can't afford a shot how would they afford a litter? I'd take her to the vet and see what they suggest.
