Maybe there is some chemical reaction that happens from scenting a female, kind of like how puppies will turn over and pee a little so that the pharamones will tell another dog that he is no threat.
Ya know that totally makes sense. Hildy has never been super fond of my husband. BUT..... just before we got her spayed, when she was about to go into heat, anytime he patted her, she'd 'flag' her tail to the side for him - LOL.

Maybe she's just a..... loose woman....

lovemygirl Ah - that all makes sense. Thank you both so much for the insight! I was just wracking my brain trying to figure out when and how I could have screwed her up so badly; I've never had a pet get pregnant so I didn't realize there were so many ways for a DA dog to get knocked up.

Kaimeju I have heard of dogs that are normally snappy having a complete personality change when they come into heat. It wouldn't surprise me if that was the case with her. Selzer's possibilities make sense too.

selzer It could be a number of things:

It could be that when she is in standing heat, she desires to be bred and allows a male to mount her.

It could also be that the breeder muzzled and held her while she was mated. Often times breeders muzzle the female, because if a female bites the male, it can be very bad for the stud dog's performance with other bitches.

It can also be that the breeder did an AI. Difficult to breed dogs are often AI'd. You would think a crappy breeder wouldn't want to bother. But even crappier breeders can perform an AI without any help from the vet.

A dog that undernourished though would probably have difficutly in getting pregnant or maintaining a litter. It can also be that she had a false pregnancy.

How did previous "owner" breed my DA dog?

Weird question. This just occurred to me. Hildy is fear aggressive (dx by behaviorist) towards other dogs. When we first adopted her 14 mos ago, she was 49 lb and had been bounced from Miami-Dade Shelter to kennel paid for by rescue to foster to kennel paid for by rescue and evidently no one had noticed that she had EPI

That part of the story is relevant because it took probably about a month for the dog aggression to come out in full force. I always assumed that was because she was in such poor health when she came to us, and/or because she'd been bounced around from original home to shelter to rescue to foster to rescue to us.

Anyway, when she came to us, her nipples were super, super swollen; she'd clearly just whelped a litter. So at some point, some dog was able to get close enough to her to impregnate her.

I'm trying to figure out if this means that she wasn't always DA. Will an otherwise-DA bitch allow a male to mate with her? Or does this mean that I created her DA tendencies? We spayed her as soon as she was healthy enough to do so, so I never saw her interact with a male dog while in heat.
