i have a beagle that some one dumped out. ive had her a week. she looks pregnant. large belly,swollen boobs having a hard time walking. laying and sleeping alot and eating like a pig. the last 2 days her boobs are not swollen anymore and when pressed they will leak. but her belly is still big. im having a hard time feeling movment but i feel pulsing and some times its strong. and her temp goes up and down between 99.5 and 98.9 so im clue less . after i pay my rent ill be taking her to the vet to see. i just wanted to hear what other people say about it. the pic that i have posted is her
We have had four litters total, and all deliveries have been different. When you think you know what to be prepared for, and what symptoms there are of impending labor, they change. The best thing for you to do is to take her to the vet and have an xray. Then you know what you can expect. Your only other choice is to wait it out and find out. Mine go in to labor within a few hours of their temperature dropping to 98.4. They will dig for a couple of days prior to delivery, and in labor, you can feel the contractions.
He is your friend, partner, defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devot
What sick ****** dumps a mother dog out on the street like that!! For cryin out loud! Bless you for taking her in to your home. She is very lucky to have found someone who cared enough to help her. Now that i have ranted.. yes it does sound as though she is pregnant and due to drop her litter. Be vigilant take her to the vet. Buy a cheap kiddie pool and fill it with shreeded paper or clean towels. Let her stay somewhere out of your everyday household traffic and quiet and possibly dark or dim room. then just hang out and watch her for signs of labor. You have my best wishes.

well her temp dropped to 97.9 this morning were just keepin a close eye out. yea .. in our city many people have been dumping pregnant dogs out i was looking on CL and there have been many posts about 4 others its really sick
she went in to labor this morning. first puppy was born around 7.30 this morning second on shortly after i had to jump in on that one. she chewed to cord to short i had to stop bleeding and get it to breath.they are doing good but im still waiting on the other puppies
well ...2 puppies made it out of 4. 2 where still born last one was stuck i had to pull it out... but i still tried to get them to breath just in case. 2 very fat puppies boy and a girl. the girl i had to work for 30 minutes for her to breath right. lots of stimulation. and annie chewed her cord to short . so she kinds bleed alot. i have to sew it together to stop bleeding. i was wondering i called the vet also. she is having green discharge kinda slimy but the vet said it was normal.it dont smell. but every thing is all good. annie dose not seem to have any pain and i gave her chicken soup.
I'm very sorry for your loss! Had she been checked by a vet when you first found her? So baffling to have had her pass away and not know why. Did she see the vet after the delivery? He (vet) didnt have any clue what could have gone wrong?
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
