How many will she litter this time?
by crazydog on 29 June 2009 - 09:23
|My girl gave birth last time to 12 very healthy puppies, 5 boys and 7 girls. She is again pregnant and is going to whelp around the 19th July.|
Will she go for 12 or will have less.
Have your say?

|How old is she, and what number is this litter? If this is her second I may say 9. Good number|

|I agree, how old is she? how many times was she bred this time? Is this her first litter? I've had females bred only once or twice and had nice litter of 6-9, and females bred as many as 4 times, that have had up to 14. |
Would need more info first! :)

|26 months old. This is her second litter. Tummy is not so large as last time.|
Ladywolf, thats good info, i never knew the # of times the females was bred would effect the litter size.

|26 months and already the second litter................|
is this girl titled, are hips and elbows certified?

|Impossible to say. All depends on timing, sperm and eggs, condition of the uterus. With that said and so as not to tick off the fertility gods, I am going to say 10 ;-). I am expecting a litter on the 17th and don't want bad juju. :-) Good luck to you- will you x-ray ahead of time? Theresa|

I really try hard not to be nasty on line but 2 litters and only 26 months old, your poor puppy !!!
How about hips has she been x-rayed yet ? Or are you just selling puppies to unsuspecting new owners.

|Well, she is doing well. I just have my own theories which if you want I will PM you. Her hips are good, mentioned by a vet.|
We didnt want her to conceive but since nobody is doing AI here, I gave it a shot. It worked. Now only I wish it is a small litter.

Why did you have her mated If you didn't want her to Conceive ARE YOU SOME KIND OF AN IDIOT !!!!!

|Didn't this female have a litter in Jan09? I remember you posting about weaning the litter early. She had 12 puppies in that litter, now she's having more, ridiculous!!!! Sorry, but i just do not agree with breeding a female every season, especially after rearing 12 pups. Just my opinion!! Liz.|
