Okay I have a German Shepard Husky Mix male and a full bred chinese pug which is female, she is in heat and we have been trying to keep them separated because we figured that if he got her pregnant, she would die if she had the puppies. Is that true? I accidently left the door open and she ran out and max(german shepard husky) got her, we could NOT get them apart, they were stuck for at least 30 minutes before they let go. Please let me know should the vet abort the puppies or what? My mom says Princess will die if she has them...
Is everyone saying abort the pups because of health reasons for the mom or are there other reasons? Just curious. After you take care of this situation, abort or not, please be responsible and have the dogs fixed.

I say abort the pups and have her spayed and your male castrated.
Heres why. Besides the obvisous medical beifits. A small pug being pregnant by a German Sheperd can mean death before she even gets to the labor part. I mean imagine 6-8 German Sheperd puppies growing in a tiny Pug body. So many many things can go horribly wrong.
Everyone isn't thinking they'll be GSD puppies. We are thinking of the very real danger that the puppies will inherit the genes for size from the GSD/Husky parent. Just 1 or 2 pups like that will kill the pug due to their size. It doesn't seem all that hard to understand. If they inherit the pug genes for head shape there is a huge possibility that a c-section will be needed (which also endangers the mom) because it is common for pugs to have delivery problems due to the large size of the pup's heads. Why endanger the dog? One way or the other it will probably lead to surgery. Why not surgery now when it is least dangerous to the mom instead of later in an emergency c-section during labor?
This just seems like a total no brainer to me....shoot, I'd recommend aborting even if the sire was the pug. Do the responsible thing for both your animals and have them altered....sooner rather than later.
is this a joke? Because forget the birth, the mating must have been painful. How long ago did this happen? I reccomend you make a tea of comfrey leaves to bathe her genitals in. I repeat, this is to bathe her genitals in, and should not be drank. The comfrey will soothe any soreness she may be feeling and promote healing as well. Then by all means possible do not allow this to happen again.
