Come on Ruffian, don't scare them to death. Yes she more than likely is pregnant. This is not the end of the world. But you are in a limited time frame for a medical solution if you don't want pups. Huskies are good sized dogs and I wouldn't think have a higher section rate than any other medium sized dog....
hi there the neighbors dog is 1 1/2 year old wolf hybrid they have papers on him and she is just alittle bigger than he is what would the pups be if i let the pregancy continue? how long do i have before its to late its only been two days i really don't know if she is or not

Be prepared for a c-section. And be prepared to be bottle feeding 9-12 puppies every 2 hours because mama is too young to take care of them. Young mothers DONT make good mothers. (in dogs that is). She may refuse them and may not feed them. So, you'd have to bottle feed them every 2 hours and then stimulate them.

you def. need to get that puppie sprayed as soon as possible. i have a lab and part husky and you dont want to just have alot of those dogs around. She cant take care of a puppy when she is one herself. Go get her sprayed quick, or atleast take her to the vets to find out . and if she is not pregnat your lucky. But get her sprayed anyway for purposes in the future. inless you are going to want puppies in the future.
Dogs have been having puppies and been being bred on their first heat cycle whenever there is a willing male around to do the deed for centuries. Huskies are very similar to the wild dogs (wolves, coyotes, etc.) and even though she might not make a good mother at such a young age she isn't much more at risk of a dangerous delivery than any other young dog. Common sense, experience, and experts teach us that it is not in the best interest of the dog to breed so young and of course the possibility of complications is a little higher but it isn't a death sentence. There is much greater risk of complications and death with a mismate shot. If you don't intend on using her for breeding by all means get her spayed. If you do intend to breed her then your safest option is to let her have the pups and watch her carefully during and after labor to make sure she isn't having a hard time delivering and to make sure she is taking care of the pups. Present half of any bills to your neighbor who lets their wolf-dog run loose. Most towns have laws about keeping a wolf hybrid so papers indicating the percentage of wolf are often required.
Seriously, let's not scare the beejesus out of her. It was an accident, granted the dog *should* have been spayed by now but a little late for that gem of advice don't ya think?
Not that I agree w/bringing more unwanted puppies into the world, especially wolf hybrid pups (don't even get me started) let's talk more about the dog's health and safety rather than the usual "You are a crappy owner, how could you let this happen?!?!"
Let's give her solid advice on how to take care of mom and let her vet take over the medical issues.....
Scolding her isn't going to change what has already happened. You can't change the past but we can learn from it....
I had an appointment for my schnauzer to be spayed back in the spring, she went into heat 2 days before the appt., the vet made us a new appt. after the heat, well needless to say, since Max was not fixed, she got pregnant. She was only 9 months old, and she is a small mini..only weighs about 9-10 lbs, the vet advised us to spay her and take the puppies, we also fixed max at the same time....I had a little guilt, especially when I see schnauzer pups, but I knew I wasn't or she wasn't ready for pups. Now looking back, I know I did the right thing.
