I RESCUED a dog from the shelter a year ago. They said they thought
she was spayed but wasn't 100% for sure so they set an appt for her to be spayed. A few weeks after I had her at home she starting gaining a lot of weight. You can see from my history of posts that I posted here explaining the situation and asking if people thought she could be pregnant.
I took her to the vet because I was worried something was wrong with her. My vet confirmed by X-ray that she was indeed pregnant and ready to have the puppies in a matter of weeks (which meant she was already pregnant BEFORE entering the shelter and BEFORE I rescued her).
My vet offered to spay her and abort the litter. I went home and researched and found out the farther along the mom is in her pregnancy the risks increase for a blood vessel to be cut during surgery and for her to bleed out. I opted for her not to have the surgery and a few weeks later she had pups.
So because of someone else's poor choice not to have their dog spayed, she got pregnant and ended up in a shelter. Luckily I got her when I did or those poor things would have been born in a shelter and the mom (my dog) wouldn't have had to proper care.
8 weeks after she had the puppies I did the responsible thing and had my dog spayed.
So there is the story... happy?
