Default New addition to the family! and maya on heat?

So today we got a retriever.. and named him Castiel..
When we introduced him to Maya she sniffed.. played a little and then started to hump him? lol. Could that mean she´ll be on heat soon?

It's dominance behavior....

As a side note, if she's intact, is the new dog?

Definitely get one or both fixed... two intact dogs is a disaster waiting to happen for obvious reasons. He's a cutie, congratulations

Should I breed my dog? Flowchart

If you're planning on titling, getting health checks and OFA'd, etc and are adamant about learning and possibly breeding her once you've got those, then alter the male. Crate-and-rotate and everything else involved with having an intact male and female is a nightmare and a half.

What did you decide to do with the puppy you found the other day? Just keep that pup in mind in the whole crate/rotate scheme as well.

I know it´s a lot of work to keep them intact.. But my last dog, I got so sad when I couldn´t have one of her puppies because i got her fixed..
I wouldn´t breed them constantly, only once. And I wouldn´t sell her puppies, i would give them to people I know would take care of them.

I don´t know.. I have been considering having Maya fixed,
I´m not looking foward to the whole heat thing, and walking her here on heat will be tourture. As soon as I step outside, all my neighbor´s dogs are walking around ...

Loveeco.. The boxer mix puppy.. We found her original owner =] she was a puppy from this mechanic that works near the block we found her at.. she´s his bitch´s puppy.. so we took her to him. I hope she´ll be cared for

You can go back to the breeder you got her from and get another pup.

You can't walk her when she's in heat in the neighborhood as you describe it. Can't let her outside by herself, need to leash potty.

Where are you?

It will be quite the torture keep an intact male in the house with an intact female ...... People need to properly continue to breed the best of the best but there are certainly a lot of risks associated with breeding (look at recent threads with dead litters, females requiring expensive surgeries etc....stuff can go wrong).

You ARE more likely to get a dog like your current one if you go back to your breeder or determine what you want and look for it.
