Marv, here is a website I used when Princess went into labor. There is a wealth of information. I had Princess xrayed the day she delivered so I knew how many puppies were to be born. That way, if they all didn't deliver, I could call the vet and get her in as quickly as possible. The site has everything catagorized so you can pick and choose the topic you need. I printed out all I needed, but she had her babies with no help from me. All I could do is stand there and cry like a baby. Good luck.

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!!

Nothing like cheering the arrival of 7 more Pit Bulls into a world that uses euthanasia as a method of birth control for Pit Bulls (the lucky ones anyway).

Before everyone jumps all over my "mean" post, I'm sorry but it takes a series of bad judgements to end up with a litter of Pit Bull puppies. Unfixed male, unfixed female, access to each other...that's 3 alone. That's assuming it was really an accident, which it doesn't seem to be since the OP originally said they bred the dog b/c lots of people asked them if they were going to and said they wanted a puppy (like no other Pit Bull owners have ever had that happen). And they didn't go to the vet afterwards to find out about spay/abort, they went a month later to check on mom's pregnancy status.

Instead of "being a rescue" maybe this person should be encouraged to volunteer for a rescue, esp one that goes into shelters and has the sad luck of meeting all the hundreds of Pit Bull puppies under a year or two of age that end up being killed.

I'm sorry - three explanations is two too many 1) it was an accident 2) people we know wanted puppies, and now - wait for it - preventing the breed from dying out. Let's not enoble this experience.

Notwithstanding, you seem to be doing everything right - staying in touch with your owners, getting the mum and pups spayed and neutered, etc. So keep it up and good luck with your plans.

On the contract from new owners you should also make them sign to spray and neuter...
