I've been watching this pregnant dog at the pound for weeks now. My puppies got adopted, then I went on vacation. When I got back I found out that the dog was now sick and would soon be put to sleep. So, of course, I went and got her. She is very sweet and calm and mellow. She is eating and drinking fine and didn't have a fever when I took her to the vet. She is on antibiotics now and I hope it won't affect the puppies but we will just have to wait and see. The vet said she will have puppies any day now.
I cleaned out the bathroom where the last litter of puppies was and set it up for her tonight. I have plenty of donated towels, sheets, and blankets and my puppy-nanny said she will help me by doing my laundry again which is awesome. The pound said she was a Sharpei/Rottie mix but I think Sharpei/Shepherd or something else because her ears stand straight up and both Sharpeis and Rotties have folded ears. She reminds me of a South American Capybara, those giant rat-like creatures, especially since she is round in the middle.
Hopefully she will wait to have her puppies in the evening when I get home from work and all will go well.
