    My mums neighbours have a little crossbreed girl.the husbands mum had to rehome her little staffordshire bull terrier boy for some reason so the couple took him in rather than send him to rescue. they had only had him for a couple of weeks and the two got on really well. my mum made them a new bed for the little boy when they took him in. today the man called round with the bed and a box of dog food/biscuits etc, my mum assumed the dogs werent getting on as hoped and asked if he had to rehome the little staffy?the man was crying as he told my mum that when they returned home after a short trip out, the little girl was cowering in the corner of the garden and covered in blood, they first thought the staffy had attacked her and rushed her to the vet who told them that the girl dog was having a silent season and the dogs had infact mated and where she had panicked and run she had done very bad damage to herself resulting in her spleen being ruptured and she was badly bleeding inside and the vet said because of the damage the only option was to put her to sleep!!! the man is beside himself as the wife didnt really want the little staffy and had her little girl before they met but the man had talked her into giving him a home. this is not in any way the staffys fault but does show what can happen with devestating results when dogs are left unattended whilst mating takes place!!! i honestly believe they didnt know she was in season as with silent seasons there is no signs and these people are heart broken!!! just a warning for all those who still think it is ok just to leave the dogs to get on with it:(

    it is very sad and to be honest i was unsure wether to post it or not but if it makes one person think first then it is well worth it. any mating should always,always be supervised and the girl held and reassured:( this was not the case with this couple, just a very sad accident, resulting in little mollys death:(

    I am glad you've posted this as heartbreaking as it is!
    Silent season's are dreadful, I have one bitch who was
    mated whilst having one, luckily for me it was a mating I
    had planned & the dog's were the same breed, also fortunately,
    I was at home when this happened and on hand to assist, it
    could have been very different had I not been as I didn't even
    know she was having this season! I cage all my dog's now if
    I go out.....lesson learned for me!
    I hope this help's someone else, if you only save one little dog's life
    with this story it will have been worth posting...Thank you x
