I've been looking through the internet and here for some information in reference to an incident tonight at the park. As I take Sheba there almost every night and meet up with other GS owners - I keep as watchful an eye on her as possible.
There was a male dog that she was playing with not too far from where I was standing. I turned around to say something to one of the other owners and as I turned around the male was humping her. Augh!! No!! So I ran over and as I got close he dismounted and she came over to me.
Now, she is approx 5 months now. I haven't seen her doing anything with her downstairs (licking it a lot, etc.) and some of the other things that they do when they are ready to go.
My concern is even though he was making the motions - is a female her age in a place in time that she can become pregnant?
I finally found the owner and he is 6 months and not neutered. I checked her place and it did not appear that anything had happened. But, I'm no vet.
Any insights? I'm just not ready to be a grandpa!
