Eating her puppies
by: Donna

You should take your dog to the vet to make sure she is healthy. The vet will better be able to answer your question.

A couple of thoughts:

The pups may have been sick.

Perhaps she felt she couldn't look after them.

Bitches should only be bred twice maybe three times in their lifetime. Never when too young or old (under two or over seven).


Here is more information on breeding that may help:

Very sad
by: Ed A from NJ

Not all females are good mommies. I have heard of this a few times. Both females had to be spayed and were retired from breeding. One was a newfie who would step on and kill all but 2 of her babies.

The second time it happened, she was retired and the owner found her a home. The other was a bulldog and had a c section. The vet thought she saw the puppies as pain. She was rehomed though our rescue.
