Hopefully, Bella did not end up "preggers" with just one accidental breeding, especially if you have issues with terminating pregnancies in dogs in an emergent situation...praying that wont become a decision you are faced with-mommas health or the pregnancy.....as far as the breeding pair go, they seem like "a perfect couple" but of course, it is what is in their genetic predisposition that will determine the outcome of the puppies. You have about 6 weeks to absorbe everything you can get your hands on about caring for the pregnant female, nutrition for pregnancy, meds that can not be given to pregnant females, whelping puppies, pre and post natal vet care for momma and babies, xrays, blood work on mom and if the situation arises, how to feed (including tube feeding)and care for orphaned puppies. Be sure you have funds set aside for emergencies during the pregnancy.....probably around $3000.00 - $5000.00 will cover an emergent c-section at an emergency clinic.....get a lot of sleep over the next 2 months!!! You wont get much sleep after those babies come if there are any problems.....welcome to the world of breeding!!! Praying for an uneventful and successful outcome! You can have an ultrasound done as early as 3-4 weeks and a vet that is experienced at reading ultrasounds will be able to tell you if she is "preggers".

Yorkiemom has given you good advice but there was something I wanted to add. Have the vet teach you how to tube feed that way if you have a fading pup and it wont nurse you will be able to get it nourishment. Alot of times you cant get a fading puppy to take a bottle without causing it to aspirate because you are forcing milk down them. Tube feeding is the best way to feed a fading pup. Too many times I see threads on here about a fading pup and the owner desperate and not knowing what to do. Prepare yourself for the worst to happen so youll be prepared for anything. Also save money in case Bella needs a c section. Most vets require cash up front

Thank you for stressing the importance of this effort to save a starving baby....rather than let the pup starve to death because of a fear of tube feeding, learn to do it so if you need to, you can be responsible for helping the baby!

I was just going to ask if the vet confirmed the "preggers" but I see he/she didn't. Gosh..I would want to know for sure right away so I could plan ahead. Wishing the OP lots of luck if she is and hope she stays around to let us know.

Other than her gaining weight and or her getting her milk which should be later on you might want to have your vet check. In any case Welcome to YT and please let us know what you find out. I am not a breeder but there are breeders on this site that will be more than willing to help you out if she is. Best of luck to you and your girl and again let us know!

Glad to see you are taking her to the vet to confirm. If she is preggers please ask lots of questions and if you don't have your vets cell number that would be a good time to get it in case she goes into labor after hours. Let us know...

Remember that giving birth is a natural process and requires little to no help. So don't get yourself worked up and stressed out to the point that you can be of no help incase of an emergency. Good with your little one

That is an absolutely incorrect and dangerous statement when it comes to Yorkies.

While whelping is natural, it isn't always an easy thing for toy dogs. A simple search on this site will find thread after thread with people pleading for help for many problems with whelping and mommas and puppies that need prompt action and medical help to survive.

If one is to be involved in such endeavors, they should be well-versed in all the possibilities so that they know when something isn't normal. Without the proper knowledge, it's very difficult to tell the difference between normal and emergency situations. I've seen people freaking out here over what is a normal event during whelping and -- on the flip side -- others in a bad situation that did not realize it and lost momma or babies.

And some of the most stressed out here during a whelp tend to be the most experienced breeders. I couldn't do it, I'm not cut out for it, it isn't for the faint of heart.

I hope that if Bella is pregnant that she is one of the ones that has an easy time.

Pregnancy Testing in the Dog | VCA Animal Hospitals

From this site. Relaxin in dogs can be tested through a blood draw. I leave you to read the whole article.

At this point I would treat her as if she is pregnant, and make sure you keep her very healthy. High quality food, exercise, etc.

Also you need to get yourself ready for the whelping. Debra Jensen has a good site. Just google her and you will find her site.

As the gestational timeframe is on average 63 days you do have lots to prepare, not only for the whelping but for the rearing of these puppies.

Make sure you have on hand a whole lot of things. Whelping pudding recipe, learn how to tube feed (ask your vet to show you how), a weighing scale, your whelping area, your whelping supplies. Your emergency and regular vet on speed dial, your whelping coach (which I hope that you have). Stock up your freezer with meals for your family. Learn all the signs of distress in labour. You have much to learn. get busy. YOur gals life and those future puppies depend 100% on you.

To the OP you would honestly be better taking an experienced breeder like YorkieMom1's and Gemy's word on this. They have been doing this a long time and are well versed on all the issues that can and do arise. Praying your little one isn't pregnant and if she is you will do the best thing for her.

Sure it is natural process, and just as surely naturally things can and very often times go wrong. Right now she doesn't even know how to recognize an emergency situation with labour, whelping, and rearing young puppies. So maybe she should be stressed enough to find out some basics. Which is why she is here posting.

And she should be if not 'stressed" actively engaged in preparing for this litter.

I have known no that is No experienced breeders that are not on a heightened alert basis throughout their dam's pregnancy, labour, whelping and the rearing of puppies. And they are experienced! Not a first time and I can't even say Novice breeder, as Novice breeder in my mind means someone who has done the studying, assisted at whelps, and this is their first time whelping. That is a Novice. This is not a Novice. It is a totally un-prepared person setting themself up for whelping and raising a litter of puppies.
