Hey im new here, just had a question about my little girl.

Yesterday was her first day of bleeding, and also her first time being in heat. She is almost 8 months old. My Neighbors dog jumped the fence and got ahold of her. Im not sure how long he was back there and when i noticed it he wasnt doing anything but chasing her around. Is She fertile this soon, is there anyway to know if she got preg?

Also she is AKC registered, and he is a German Shepard, I was wanting to breed her in a couple years with a male Boxer, If she is preg, does she lose her purebreed regestry on future litters?

I know there is only a short period of time that they will allow mating but i'd take her to the vet and maybe get him to give her an injection just incase. :-??

The boys will do whatever needed to get to your dog if she is on heat so best keep a watchful eye on those naughty boys in the neighbourhood. :axe:

Never had girls exept when i was younger as a family dog so others might be able to help you a bit more then that :bshelp:

Well, first off if she is in heat i would not let her outside alone. You HAVE to keep a constant eye on her. It is possible that she could get prego, anything is possible. just becasue she a mutt litter, please dont take that the wrong way...its just not a purebred litter, she wont lose her purebred status. Who her parents are will never change, only the puppies should their be any will not be able to be registered since they are a mix. No way to know if it took until she starts to show prego signs.

I've heard that male dogs can smell a bitch in heat as far as a mile away. They will jump a fence (as you witnessed already), or even break through a fence to get to her. As Andrea already stated, the safest way from having this happen again is to keep her under constant supervision.
As far as when they can actually get pregnant, or her fertility time, that really depends on when she ovulates in her cycle. It is definitely a possibility.

I know what your going threw. My female is in heat too. Everybody here is correct in saying that a male will do whatever it takes to get to her. We have a male Chiu after ours. He risks getting smushed. Watch her close, we have been chaining ours to a swivel stake during potty time. She can still run around like a fool but cant get out. We sit outside with her just incase he gets in. After the first scare of him getting in my yard, his owner has been really helpful about making sure he dosent do it again.

From my limited experience the female will not allow the male to mount her until she is ready, which is usually not the first day or two. Usually the female will sit down, turn around or run away if the male tried to mount her and she's not ready.

If I remember correctly, I believe that first week of the cycle is kinda preparation, so to speak. But having said that, it's not the same in all dogs..She's way to young for pups, so I would take her in to your vet and have her checked out...And definitely don't let her outside at all unless she is on a lead....Where there's a will, there's a way..We live in a semi rural area, no fences, except for ours and I have seen dogs from all over come around when there is a female in season, so you cannot be too careful

Usually/generally at that age and that early in her heat cycle, she probably didn't allow him to mount her.

The window for breeding (in the Northern breeds I worked with) starts around the end of the first week and goes about half way into week 3. The younger bitches we wanted to breed rarely let the dogs mount fully the first time around.

(FYI- The Northern breeds I worked with usually only had 1 "heat" per year, so the plumbing may be timed a little different).

As far as future litters, breed 2 papered Boxers together you have papered Boxer pups. Breedings from previous cycles have no bearing on future litters.

When my female Chow was in heat, I actually had numerous male dogs just hanging out on my lawn like paparazzi!!!

They were quite annoying. It was such a relief having her spayed.

well, "chasing her" is the good news....hopefully she wasn't INTO him..lol
But to be honest..I know you said you don't know how long he was around her. I am hoping your talking in minutes here. To be blunt, after a male mounts and penetrates a female ( one good clue..the female usually is VERY vocal..sounds like screaming IMO ) He actually becomes stuck in her for I have seen upwards of 10-20 minutes, as the base/bulb of the male enters the female and "locks" them together while he continues the impregnation
