Doreen, I was just reading my posts from our AZ pug rescue and I'd like for you to read this message that I am going to copy and paste here. I am doing this because I want you to see another problem you can possibly encounter. Although it may seem to most on here that it is uncommon, as a former show person and breeder, I've encountered it as have many in the field. It is graphic, so be prepared:

I had to do a trade show today, and on my way listened to the hotline, to find a lady who needed a call back asap.

I returned her call, only to find her pug had given birth at midnight to 7 puppies. One was already dead when it was born. The six remaining wanted to nurse, and the mother didn't want them to,and she ended up eating another one, which now left 5.

She took them to her vet, and while there ate another. The finally got her to start nursing them, and sent them home, the mother and 4 remaining babies.

The women put them into a room and left the room for about 10 min, to come back and find only three left and blood all over, again she ate her baby.

She asked me to come and get the remaining, I went over and mama pug wasn't the least bit interested in them, when we went into the room mama came along went over to them, sat down and they worked their way over to her to eat, she really wasn't in a position where they could eat.

While the women was signing the surrender papers to turn them over to me, her friend screamed and we ran back in to find she had one in her mouth and was getting ready to eat it, we tried to open her mouth, but she tightened her jaw, she finally let the pup go and it was fine.

It was a very strange experience, got them all scooped up and took them to Jene, who is a vet tech at Goodyear and she and her partner are going to nurse them and hang onto them until they are ready to go, thank God.

They are all girls and one is like a brindle, they are so tiny. Kryn is holding one, so you can see how small they are in his hand, they weigh about 3 ounces. Hopefully they will make it, I will keep you posted.

I agree with Pam, not a good idea to breed if its for profit. Mainly because if profit is made the health of the pups is usually sacrificed. In responsible breeding not a lot of profit is actually made. (Health tests, worming, food, toys, vaccinations, cash for emergency caesarean if needed, taking back a dog you've bred and (possibly) refunding if in the future the owner can no longer care for the dog etc. I mean, you wouldn't want a dog you've bred to end up with somebody you've never met before or in a shelter) So many things, so overall not alot of profit is made at all.

I concur with all this advice, please do your research, talk to reputable breeders and ask yourself why you want to do this. If it's to make money or to experience a birth, you really need to re-think this. We will all be hoping you make the best decision for your little female. Spaying her can lead to a longer and healthier life. Please, please re-think this. :0(

Doreen the one thing that Brent has touched on is that many Pugs have problems giving birth naturally, either too large puppies or large litters. The Litter that I was supposed to have Hektor from was only one Pup who like Brent's Lucas was very large especially for a girl, 8oz. The Litter that Hektor came from was one of 9, they lost the runt and his mother also had a c-section.
The other problems is that you need to have both your girl and her potential mate screened for things like PDE, Hemivertibrae, Hip Dysplacia. All these thing are potentially destructive for the puppies.
So as all here have said, it is not a matter of what to feed her and what to do for the birth, you need to do your homework before you get there and you will find out all the other things then,
Good luck, if it is any help, one of my friends little Boston has just had three puppies and she is being speyed after the puppies are weaned, it can be a very upsetting process for the owners when faced with the potential of losing the Bitch in having pups.

Good points Brent and Sophie, good points indeed
Comment by Sophie on June 16, 2010 at 4:17pm
I agree with Brent. There is alot more to it than getting just getting her together with a male. Theres the financial side of it and many other things. Spend time researching before you jump into this. Good health is important so hopefully your female (and the stud) will have necessary health tests done prior to breeding.

If your girl is not pregnant yet, why not hold off until you have a chance to do some research, their are so many things that you would be well advised to know, certain shots that need to be current, and I mean very current, the background health wise of the stud, you have much work that should be attended to prior to getting involved in breeding, please don't just jump into it...should it come to pass do you have the finances to have a c-section performed, oh so many things to be aware of.
