I have a friend who has a breeding pair of Rottweilers, they are both registered, papered, health checked, scored etc. She breeds for the right reasons and understands about taking puppies back if something happens and the like. She went away a few weeks ago just as her bitch came into season, I was meant to look after both of them but she took the bitch with her so I didn't have to try and keep the two seperated, so I just looked after the male for her.
While she was away, the bitch managed to escape from her metal crate during the night and get with a bullmastiff from down the road, who is also used for breeding so is health checked etc. So now the bitch is pregnant.
The catch is, my friend is also pregnant and is due 1 week before the dog is due, so she will have a newborn baby and rotti x bullmastiff puppies at the same time. She was planning on getting the bitch aborted but after making some phone calls, the average price of an abortion is $600 which is a lot when you've got a baby on the way and don't have an income (I understand that if something goes wrong, costs will be well over $600). I've offered her my help if she needs it, and her mum also breeds dogs so has offered her help as well.
So the question is, what would you do if you were in her position?
