Can dogs get pregnant without a tie?

So my friend and I have been trying to breed my Pug female to my friends chihuahua male. There hasnt been a tie but it has gone inside a few times. Someone told me they could still get pregnant without a tie but others said they cant. If they cant well keep trying.

The reason we would really like pups from them is because on a walk we saw the most adorable Chug. She looked exactly like a pug but tiny like a chihuahua. I fell in love with it and since my friend owns a male chihuahua and my Pug is 2 and a half we though wed have a litter.

We are planning on keeping one each and the rest will go to family members. I know small dogs dont have big litters. Im hoping one of our chugs looks like the one I saw on the walk.

So can the bitch get pregnant without a tie?

Yes, a successful breeding can happen without a tie.

There are some crosses that tend to be remarkably uniform, but I don't think that Pug x Chihuahua is one of them.

Pugs can have serious complications with whelping, due to their conformation. If she does end up pregnant, then you will need to either arrange for a c-section to be done, or have contingency plans for an emergency c-section if she has a pup get stuck or something else go wrong during whelping. You will need to find someone experienced in breeding and raising puppies who can help you through the initial whelping (either natural or c-section) and neonatal phase. Knowing when a bitch or puppy is in trouble, and knowing what to do for them is vital.
