    Red face birthing problems

    How can you tell when your female needs help during birthing ? Our closest vet is approx. 1 hr. away so how can I prepare myself for the birthing process?:,(My dog was bred by a bulldog. She is a pyronese cross and not very big. Is it true that she may have trouble giving birth to the bulldog pups?

    I suggest you do some SERIOUS research.
    Yes, she may die and loose all her puppies.

    Most breeders would have ultrasounds done to see how many pups there are/how big they are. The vet can help you determine what steps to take in that case.

    Bulldog pups are usually delivered by c-section because the width of their shoulders is too wide to pass through the bitch's pelvis. I would consult a vet immedieately about this.

    Definitely talk to your vet. Not doing so, could kill your dog and the puppies.

    Then please get her spayed after the pups are born. There are so many mutts (and purebred dogs) being euthanized each yr because there aren't enough homes, that bringing more mixed breed puppies into the world is irresponsible. Hopefully, you rescued her already pregnant. If not, and this was intentional, it didn't show good judgement. If it was an accidental breeding, then that is proof that you need to get her spayed.

    I agree that there are too many animals, period, in shelters .... but there is nothing wrong with "mutts/mixed breed" dogs. There's nothing wrong with pure bred dogs either, mind you, but mutts are just as great. I don't think mutts are the only problem in the shelters. Though I see where you included purebred, it seemed like you were bashing the mixed breeds. (Had to defend my babies.)

    maui dog - There's many things that can give birthing a high risk of complications. Talk to your vet way before she's due, that way you and your vet will have a more heads up on what to do.

    Not bashing mixed breeds at all. All of my dogs are mixed breed dogs. All were dumped/strays. I prefer mixed breed dogs.

    But I believe that animals should be bred to improve the breed. And that means only breeding the best to the best. So I am against breeding any 2 different breeds together, breeding mutts together, or breeding purebreds that aren't very good specimens of the breed.
