also check with your vet, they may know people looking for a puppy, sometimes they've lost a dog and are looking for another to adopt and tell their vet about it..

Ahhhh keep a male

If you need a rescue's help placing the dogs, contact Kristin at Southwest Michigan GSD Rescue (it is on Facebook). She is very legit. I have fostered for them and I know her very well personally and have seen her facility and how things are run. Chicago is close enough to southern Michigan (she has been flying dogs in from kill shelters in California because there are not enough GSDs available here to meet the demand). She recently took in a pregnant mix from the pound and placed all the puppies (unknown mixes). When I fostered through them the adoption process was not just throwing a dog at someone, we were very thorough.

I am shocked, so I can't imagine how you feel I can't wait to see them as they get bigger. I wonder if they are all GSD? Did the place you got her from have other dogs?

I just realized you are planning on taking them to the vet today? Why?

If I need to take the dam to the vet, I put the pups in a laundry basket and hold it the entire time. I do not set the puppies down. It is just to ensure the dam realizes they are right there and ok.

I try to stay away from vets, and clean my shoes after going there with bleach. There is too much crap in vet clinics.

Stay safe.

We took to the vet more for Heidi, just want to make sure that she didn't have anymore inside of her. Doc said she's a little skinny now, to give her eggs and make sure she eats. Pups all appears to be in good health. 4 males and 3 females.

Thanks selzer, he did use a laundry basket. Not sure if he put them down or not. He got there early cuz he was worried about traffic with the snow forecast.

Necessity is the mother of invention, or, great minds think alike.

Did they take an x-ray to ensure there is no pup left behind? Usually I will take her in if she runs a fever. I agree with your vet, feed her eggs. Eggs are good for her. You can nuke them, and then you do not have to add grease. You can hard boil them, but I think that gives them stinky gas. You can give them raw -- not appetizing to me, and messy, so I don't.

Chicken, yogurt, cottage cheese, American cheese, pumpkin, too.

Between 2-4 weeks, you will want to worm them. I get strongid from the vet and they will tell you to weigh the pup and to give so much per so many pounds. I think it is 1cc per 21 pounds. At 3 weeks, they will probably be 3-5 pounds which will be about .25 cc. They will give you applicators. Worm the dam too, and then keep the remainder in a dark cupboard. Worm them again every two weeks.

There are other types of wormers.

Puppy care should go smootly, but if a puppy gets diarrhea, loses weight, refuses to nurse, it is in trouble. At this point those pups temperatures are at 97 or 98 degrees. It will not reach its adult temperature until it is over 3 weeks old. What this means, is that a virus that will make your dog sneeze or cough once or twice or miss a meal can literally kill your baby puppies, because they simply cannot get to the temperature required to kill the virus.

Another good reason to limit contact with strangers, dogs, people outside the family.

I apologize if my posts have been fragmented, without the necessary information at the right time. Cujo started whimpering last night, and we made the decision to put him down today. We got him to the vet this morning and he passed before they were ready to inject him. It's befuddled my brain a bit.

I don't mean to overwhelm.
