Q. I bred my female Chihuahua and then after I brought her home the neighbor’s dog bred her. Do I need to worry about this?
I have a question, I had set up a plan to breed my dog with another Chihuahua male her size. I brought him to our home and they tied up at least 4 times I know of. I brought him home yesterday and this morning I let her out to go potty and one of our neighbors dogs tied up with her. My question is with me breeding her a day or two before even though the neighbors dog got a hold of her she should already be pregnant from the male Chihuahua so do I have to worry about this little mistake after the fact?

It would be greatly appreciated if you could help me out with this question.

Thank you,
Lisa

A. It’s very possible your dog is pregnant from BOTH male dogs. Females can be impregnated from a number of different males which is why we always recommend keeping a female in heat confined through her whole cycle (even if she was bred).

You’ll have to do DNA on the puppies after they are born to confirm who the father of each puppy is if you wish to register the litter.

If your female is AKC registered I would recommend looking up the AKCs information on dual sired litters.

Good luck.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
