    Yes but the safest and really the only way to look at things is if your bitch or dog are kept kenneled 24/7.Concrete floored fully roofed kenneled. Or you are with the dog/bitch 24 hours a day .

    Lala ; am sorry to hear of your boxer x
    But dont forget that a determined dog will find a way to you in heat bitch if needs be.

    Boss isn't desexed cos he is my fiancé's dog not mine. If Boss got out and got a female pregnant I would help the bitches owner.

    The reason why Skip is desexed cos she is working dog and she will come across alot of non desexed male dog. Also we didn't want her and boss to have puppies too.
    But thats you...and good on you for being so upfront and honest.Alot of people wouldnt be.

    I agree, that is the only way to be certain.

    I also know about determined dogs (the staffy/boxer x was one). Barney however is not LOL. I could put a foot high piece of mesh around him and he would not step over the top of it LOL.

    There is no way for him out of our yard, the fences are 6 foot and solid wood, with a steel gate (padlocked) at one side (and he cannot jump that high, too heavy I guess). Puppy mesh is stuck to the bottom all the way round and dug down a foot into the ground (because Pippi could initialy walk under the fences). And if he decided he wanted to jump through a window (which he couldnt because he cant jump that high), then he would end up inside the house and not be able to get out (all the windows on the street side of the fence are too small for him to fit through).

    If he can get off the property EVER then he probably deserves to sow his oats LMFAO

    So for the people that say its the bitches fault, does that mean everyone that owns a male can leave it entire and not be at blame if it impregnates a bitch? We can all blame the owner of the female?

    I'd have to say, if my girl got out and got preggers or if a dog got in and made it happen I'd take sole responsibility for that.

    I took her in when she was starting her cycle. When she was on heat, I kept her confined as much as I possibly could. I took her out walking one arvo and every dog in the street started barking. That was the sign for me to stop walking her until she was done. If a dog got into my yard, I'd blame myself for not protecting her enough.

    To my horror - she did get pregnant anyway. I came home from the shops one day to find my boy had opened the sliding door and let himself into the yard with her. As soon as her cycle was done we were off to the vet for a check and an appointment to be spayed. We were informed that she could be spayed, but the pups would be aborted and that broke my heart.

    My hubby and I decided to keep the litter (4 pups now a week old). Fortunately they were snatched up straight away by family members and close friends so we will be able to watch them grow.

    Another vet visit in 3 weeks for check ups and to book in the deed for BOTH Melisha and Dylan.

    No Myf thats not what I'm saying at all

    But once the deed is done it is the bitches owner who will be responsible for the litter.
