Hello all, I am new here. I have a problem with my 11 month old border collie/ blue healer. She was in her first heat about a month ago ( mabe a little bit more). We had to leave her outside while in heat a few times. Our CRAZY neighbour thinks its alright to just let her male scruffy old ugly mutt run around to pee in everyones gardens dig in the garbage and cause trouble. We have tried everything to keep that ugly thing out of out yard. One day i came outside to that ugly thing mounting my poor pooch, while she was in heat. that was a little over a month ago, and i dont know if she is pregnant. Her nipples are grown large, and i read somewhere that you can sort of feel if theres bumps under her nipples thats puppies. Is this true? how can you tell if a dog is pregnant? and how long is she pregnant for? I really dont want to take her to the vet until i am certian she is pregnant. ( i cant afford the vet right now as im having my first baby in 2 weeks) So any help would be sooo helpful. Thanks for listening. Please help!.
