my young less then a year old mini dachshund got out of the fence and i think she is prengant. Does anyone know what health problems she might have. I am scared with her so young i might lose her.

Your dog is a puppy and should not be bred. If this just happened, you should have her spayed asap.

Puppies giving birth can have problems - some need C-sections, some will not nurse the pups,etc.

You need to talk to your vet.

Yes, please take her to the vet.

Is there a reason why you haven't had her spayed?

Perhaps when you ask the vet whether or not she is pregnant, you can talk about setting up a spay appointment.
