Q: My dog just had a litter of puppies and I don't know why?

October 29, 2012 | By Cfender7 | 2 answers | Expired: 624 days ago

My dog has eaten many birds lately and we think it might be that. She also has had 2 litters before and I don't know if they are too little or she just doesn't wanna take care of them anymore. I wanna take them inside but I don't know of its a good idea.

Karen is right a dog can't get pregnant from eating birds and if your dog is killing birds and eating them I don't think you are feeding her enough your dog and her puppies need to be together you can't just take your dog in the house and leave the puppies outside the puppies will die so it is a good idea to take them in if you have a problem with that call a rescue they may tell you to spay your dog and then they will take them if she is not spayed she is running off and mating with other dogs to have puppies she doesn't know any better please get her spayed before this happens again cause this is how we end up with so many strays and unwanted puppies and even feral dogs with more puppies and more strays there is more of a possibilitey of a dog or dogs that are carrying rabies most dogs that are not spayed or nuetered do not live as long as the ones that are dogs that are not fixed have shorter life spans and even though they take care of the puppies and love them that doesn't mean they want to spend every waking moment caring for puppies they want to be loved and they want to be your best friend or your baby they don't want be mothers or fathers and just be bred for life Abby is 3 years old and since she was a 6 month old pup all she did was give birth to puppies and raise them she finally escaped and a high kill shelter picked her up they would not return her to a puppy mill she was tracked back to being a puppy mill dog but the shelter would not take her back they were in calafornia and found a rescue here were I fostered her and then adopted her she is so happy now she got hit by a car and had to have surgery she went through all of this just to make it to me and my family now all she wants is to be with us if we leave she goes along she is spioled rotten she deserves to be after what she had to go through to find a loving home you are not a loving owner if you do not spay and neuter so please get her spayed and spay and neuter all the pups before this happens again I want to have a borzio some day and alot of people breed them but I plan on adopting one from a shelter or rescue I almost ended up fostering a long haired chihuahua recently that looked like a miniture borzio but please spay her before this happens again and if you are feeding her enough train her not to hunt birds she could get sick from eating them if you can't stop her talk to the vet and see if they now why she is doing this and yes the vet will tell you the same she can't get pregnant from eating birds.

Because you didn't bother to spay your dog. I can assure you it's not because she ate a bird.
