Q. I bred my Rot bitch to a purebred Rot male. 2 weeks later I put her out with my GSD and he cross-mated her. Will she have both types of puppies?
My Rottweiler bitch came on heat 24 days ago.

On the 11th and 13th day I mated her to a wonderful pure breed rottweiler male. The problem is that two weeks after, (that is on the 24th day which was last night), I thought that her season was over, and I let her out in with my other dogs.

Unfortunately, my german shepherd cross mated with her. Please help me out. Will my female have puppies for both males or just for the Rottweiler considering that the german shepherd mated her on her 24th day of her season. (NB: I am accurate about when she started her heat cycle. I checked it three times a day before she started so there could be no mistake about when she started).

Is she still fertile on her 24th day considering that she has been mated two weeks before. If it is possible for her to have both type of puppies, will they be born together considering the two weeks difference in mating? how will I be able to distinguish which is pure breed or not?

A. This is a hard one.

I have heard of bitches seasons going this long and then getting them bred, but usually they will not breed earlier in the season. They normally only breed when they are fertile.

The odds are this bitch will have ALL rots or ALL hal breeds. It would be impossible for a bitch to have puppies that are a result of breeding's that were 2 weeks apart. That simply can not happen.

So count your days and see when this litter is born. The normal time for a litter is 57 to 72 days - with the most common being 62 days. So if the bitch whelps 62 days after breeding the Rot then they are rots. If it’s 62 days after the shepherd the will be shepherd-rot puppies.

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.
