There's a dog in one of the shelters we work with that was on the euthanasia list for today. I got her off the list, but she is in heat and they are going to spay her. Isn't this bad? I suppose it's better than being PTS. The dog is really timid and may be a cat-chaser, but the people who turned her in had really fishy stories that kept changing, so who knows what's really going on. The shelter says she is okay with people but very timid around dogs, but not aggressive with it (i.e. no fear aggression). I'm not really sure I can handle two fosters, but if Chomper doesn't get adopted I may have to try it. My question is, are there short-term consequences of spaying her while in heat? Can I expect wierd behaviors? Will Chomper (neutered two weeks ago) still possibly react to her as being in heat?
