sorry about the topic its the best I could think of but anyways. I wrote yesterda about "Female, female, male humping" "I have a 3 year old male pitbull and a female boxer/pit and a lab/beale. for one the lab is always humping My female boxer/pit but when they go out side My male humps the female labs head and the boxer humps the back of the lab do u know whats going on? seems they cant wait to go outside and start humping.. "
none are fixed..
My male tagged both dogs with in the last two days and he tagged My female boxer/pit and now He acts like hes sick he wont let her out of his eyesite and he sits there watching her but he hangs his head to the floor and now hw wont let the other female near her at all .. can someone help Me plz...
wow! i cant believe you let this go on! why arent they fixed? are you trying to get the females pregant? arnet they already mixed dogs?
and to let them all go outside together when you know what they want out side for- this isnt right. i guess i dont understand what question your asking when common sense would be to keep them seperated and get them all fixed-
wow I didnt ask to be put down I was asking a few questions. I didnt know they were in heat I never had a dog that went into heat. I have had My male for 3 years and just got My female 3 mo ago and the other female just got here a few days ago its My friends dog..
Once he started showing interest and trying to breed them, that should have clued you in. Why didnt you seperate them when you could obviously tell that they were in heat? Irresponsibilty at its finest. You watched them breed and let it happen. Did nothing to stop it, like maybe seperate him from them. Take them to the vet, have them fixed now. Some people jut arent able to have intact animals and be responsible.
Are you a younger member? If so, tell your parents ASAP. I know your friend doesn't want her dog returned pregnant. Best to call your friend right away so that she can decide what to do about her possibly pregnant dog, and decide if she even wants to continue to let her dog stay with you for one more day. And I highly doubt your family wants to deal with 2 litters of pups at the same time!!! You MUST keep the male separated from the females.
Spay and neuter! Google "low cost spay neuter" along with the name of your city and you should be able to find some affordable options if money is an issue. Also you can check with your local shelter or humane society. They can steer you in the right direction and also talk with you (and your parents, if you are young) about why spaying and neutering are important.

first off I am 29 years old!! I came on here to ask a few questions. I dont need people talking to Me like I am a retard or something people do make mistakes so get over it! Maybe im not smart in the dog/inheat dpartment thats why I came here but all I see is a bunch of people criticizing Me. I know dogs should be fixed im not stupid! but thanks for nothing!
Ok, so you say you are not stupid, so I imagine that you have the entire situation figured out.
Are you set up for whelping 2 litters of dogs?
What kind of preparations have you made in regards to emergency vet care for the mothers and their litters?
Do you have crates for your dogs? The male should be crated away from the female, when she is in heat and while she is pregnant, during and after delivery.
Have you found homes for all of the puppies? I would expect a large bitch to whelp upwards of 8 to 10 puppies or more.
Are you prepared to hand rear from 16 to 20 pups of the same age if you lose one or both mothers during the whelp? Or if one or both mothers refuses to or is unable to care for her pups once they are born.
Do you have plenty of vacation time available from your job? If you need to hand rear the pups, from one or both litters, since these will be their first litters, you could be up feeding puppies around the clock.
Where will you house the bitches and their litters?
Do you have whelping boxes? Are you aware of how to care for pregnant bitches? Do you know the signs of an impending whelp and the danger signs to watch for?
Have you considered spaying and neutering the dogs or will you continue to produce litters of mixed breed dogs?
There really are too many puppies and dogs in rescues and in pounds already. I hope you have considered all options for the puppies that you have allowed to be created. You must also realize that larger mixed breed dogs are more likely to be euthanized in a shelter, due to not being adopted.
Good luck, rearing puppies is a lot of work and very expensive. I hope that you have enough money saved for emergency caeserean sections, in case of their inability to deliver.
These are all things that I am sure that you have figured out well in advance of allowing your dogs to breed willy nilly.
