pregnant 9 month old dog

my niece adopted a 9 month old dog 3 weeks ago from a neighbour that abused her, neglected her and was trying to breed her with a poodle "just to see what the pups would look like", she's a timid sweet golden retriever mix, I think its with lab, she's slim and was eating like a hog, there was no filling her up, anyways, she took her to the vets to bbe spayed and discovered this skinny girl was pregnant, there are at least 4-5 pups that he could feel, she is due anytime, now the big question, she is terrified of trying to find "good" homes for the pups and worried they will be abused, bred, whatever, does anyone know of a good rescue that would take pups at 10-12 weeks and find them homes?

If you were closer to me, I know of a couple. Sorry I can't help, but give your girl a huge hug for taking on this responsibility. She must really take after her wonderful aunt

She doesn't look very big for a dog who is due in two weeks from those photos. Has she had the dog ultrasounded? (so you know the number of pups)

As for rescues, I would contact poodle and golden rescue and ask them where to go from there.

I would have a freakin' heart attack!!!
I hate spiders *cringes*
I didn't even know there was such a thing as a rescue for them!! I don't don't begrudge any living thing life, except when it has more than 4 legs and invades my personal space LOL


As for the dog, she's beautiful
She sure doesn't look preggers, poor baby. She must have been REALLY thin! Have you had any luck with some nearby rescues?
