Hi there. I have two male chihuahuas. They are always together. But tonight i was in the living room and heard a loud noise. Like something was wrong.

I went into the room and the dogs were "tied" like a female and male dog do!! I checked to see if was true and in fact it was!

I waited a while, they "untied" and the mounted dog has been going potty all night long. No poop but more like saliva or something. idont know. Excuse my english.

I have never seen this and now i am worried. :(

Now that I have slept and not so floored by this post I will reply...
First, in over 35 years of owning, breeding, rescuing, training, working with dogs of every size & breed, assisting at vet clinics and volunteering at shelters I have never heard or seen this happen..So IMO it didn't.
Male and Female dogs both will mount others to show dominance it is not a breeding act. Neutered males are fully capable of mounting and completing the act of breeding with a female dog in heat although no puppies will be produced( This I have seen happen).
What I am getting at is IF there was penetration or tying..be expecting puppies in about 63 days because one of your dogs is female

............IF this really did happen I hope you realize how serious it is for the submissive dog in the situation...... You should be seeking vet advice not advice on a forum

HUH!! That is sooo strange. Since it's been suggested by others-I'll ditto-you should take them to a vet. None of us are experienced with this sort of thing and what if one was injured? I'd take them in for an exam. AND make a neuter appointment-unless you are a breeder-you should neuter them ;)

Welcome to the forum

I too would be shocked if I didn't just witness this myself with two of my male unneutered dogs!!! I had to go online to see if others experienced this. I raise shih poo's and one of my males actually tied with another male!! The tie was about 15 min too and both dogs are fine from what I can tell right now. I will say I almost fell over when I saw them tied.

I would find this hard to believe if I didn't just witness this act myself. I raise shihpoo's and I just found two males tied together!! I almost fell over...they had a tie of about 15min too....both dogs seem fine and even had smiles on their faces. Totally unbelievable to me but it did indeed happen.

She obviously isn't breeding her male dogs. Is it really that hard to believe that they may just be homosexual/bisexual? This behavior shows up in many kinds of animals, not just humans.

Wow! Well one probably was showing dominance over another, and then... you know.

This is very strange but I'm sure they'll be alright.
