Owner 1 got her as a young puppy. They decided to get rid of her "because she destroyed a xmas present and pulled down the xmas tree" (complete bull in my opinion as she took no notice of my tree that was still up when she came to me) and gave her to friends then gave her to owner 2 (I don't know if cash was exchanged) and gave owner 2 proof of vaccinations
Owner 2 had her for 3 days and was walking past my house when she got hurt (stepped on some broken glass from nextdoor) i asked if they needed help as they had no control over her at all. They then told me that their landlord said they couldn't have dogs and did we want her. They gave her to me and then popped round her crate and the proof of vaccinations and left.
Personally I think they knew the possibility of her being pregnant and now the whelping over they want the profit of the pups otherwise why wait until now? They could have text/phoned at any point in the last 6 weeks but they didnt
That's a tough situation. Does seem like the original owners might be trying to make some cash off the pups. Sad! I would give a call to some rescue organizations or shelters in the area and see if they can offer you any advice. They should have a pretty good grasp on the laws regarding pets in you area.

Sucks that this is happening now.

Also, if you have access, maybe speak with a lawyer... Just in case they try to say you stole their dog.

I've spoken to a police officer for advice and they told me that because I have the vaccination records dating from when she was 6 weeks old they cannot claim that she was stolen and it is therefore a civil matter. He also went further and said that even though it's not against the law to breed at such a young age it could be deemed neglect and considering that I have spent a considerable amount of money on ensuring her care it would be unlikely for a civil court to demand the dog be returned.
So that's a weight off my mind.
As for Roxy she is doing well. Im still having to physically lay her down at times but she is no longer just wandering off.
All the pups are putting on weight but 1 is considerably smaller so I'm keeping an eye to make sure he's getting a chance to nurse. I have noticed that although he is latching on the others are knocking him off while they are rooting around and he is then after a few minutes of trying to get back to nursing just curling up and going to sleep

I think he is. He was 4th to be born and after getting him going and sorting his cord out (roxy tore it way to short) he went to sleep lol.

Not sure if anyone knows the awnser but I've just noticed that the tissue around roxy's nipples is bruised. Is this cause for concern or is it just the pups sacking so hard

If it's bruising, then yes I would say it's just from the pups suckling too hard. Is there any lumpiness in that teat, does it feel hot at all?

Also, very sorry to hear about all the trouble with the former owners. Hopefully it can be resolved soon! I do agree with others about keeping her hidden as much as possible.

Yes I'm sure it's bruising. Her stomach is warm but not hot. I can't feel any lumps just a soft mass that I would assume is the mammory glands themselves.
She is only nursing from 1 side so I've got her to flip over to give the others a rest. I tried to get her to expose both sides by rolling her over slightly but she will only stay in that position for a few moments before moving back again.
She hasn't been interested in going for her walks so it's easy to keep her hidden atm but when she starts them up again my neighbours going to take us in the car to a field about a mile away where he walks his dogs.
