It's normally 61-63 days, but if the litter is large, they could be born sooner. Of course, if you know when the female was bred, you can count the days; otherwise you have to guess. A vet, or experienced dog breeder, can palpate the female's abdomen and make an educated guess as to how far along she is in the pregnancy and how much time is left (and how many pups there are).

The daddy of my pregnant Shih tzu is a Chihuahua. When can we expect the puppies?

First off the gestation period is 63 days.

Now for what Marfette said. I do agree that there are already too many dogs sitting in shelters now and your dog needs to be spayed.

But it sounds like it's too late for this litter. I don't know of a single vet who will abort a litter of puppies or kittens. So now that she's already pregnant there's not anything that Sharon can do except get her dog through this pregnancy and find good reliable homes for the puppies.

But I do hope you get her spayed as soon as they are born!

There is no way to tell for sure how many she will have.

Do you know what day on which she bred with the male?

It is usually about 60 days until pups are born.

How long will it take my 10 month old Shepherd Akita mix to have pups? I lined her back with a pure Akita.

The gestation period for dogs and cats is 63 days from the date of conception. If you know the exact date of conception, you can count it out on the calendar and you'll be on the nose for when the pups will arrive. (03/09/2010)

I wish to know the gestation period for our pet Shih tzu dogs?

By Terry from Camarillo, CA

Answers:

It's 63 days from the day of conception. I was brought up with my mother breeding dogs, and I bred them myself for many years and it never failed. (11/05/2009)

I suggest if you are thinking of breeding your pet you get in contact with a good vet. God willing you won't need their services, but if you love your pet you will be prepared. Small breeds tend to have problems in delivering. If you aren't sure when she got bred the vet can give you a pretty good idea when she gets close. Her temperature will go up a couple of degrees and she will start nesting. I have raised puppies for years and wish you luck. Nothing more rewarding than watching the little babies being born and loving that Momma. Good luck. (11/05/2009)

It is 63 days on any dog and your dog's temp is always higher than a humans like about 102, but if you test her and she is going higher than that she is getting ready to go into labor.
