    Hey Men, I’ve been messing with dogs a long time, but would your opinion on whether you have seen this or not. I have a 8 yr old gyp that has swollen up like she’s pregnant and now producing milk, however the only way she could have gotten bred was through a chain link fence. I’ve heard of false pregnancies, never personally had a dog experience that.
    All thoughts, opinions and recommendations are welcome!!
    Thank You!!

    Had a fellow on here a couple months ago that had a false pregnantcy, I think it was Burnett... I have never had one. Lol, I didn't mean Burnett was pregnant.

    It is not impossible for them to breed through a fence and I have had a female produce milk and nurse puppies when another female had the puppies go figure I guess she wanted to be a mama also she actually turned into a better mother than the real mother

    I gotcha!!
    I’ve heard others mention it in years past, but never experienced it either. I know an 8 month old male knows what to do instinctively, but can’t imagine him locking up or getting in her enough to impregnate. Guess we’ll see soon!!

    Breeding through a chain link fence. I don't know!! I've had a couple of breeding experiences in my soon to be 79 years. In most of them the female had to do the guiding.

    Well now Mr Robert, I resemble that remark but I was really talking about my young male dog....maybe I’ve got a real smart one that can open gates and go from pen to pen....he would be worth something then!!! Lol

    I had a male that would climb the fence and walk the tops of the pens to the females pens and then climb back up and go back to his pen until he got caught doing it and a top got put on his pen. He got it from his momma she could climb just about anything.

    We had a female that got knocked up in a pen by herself. Males were next door, idk how it happened but she sure did have puppies.

    Mr. Cropp,I had that problem once. I didn't know she was in so I ran her with both of my males at different times. When she started showing I had a problem the same as yours. I had to DNA one of the pups and one of the males. The other male had already been DNA'd. I found out who the daddy was and kept the female puppy I had DNA'd. I bet you can't guess what I named that pup!
