    I rescued a b!!!! A week ago and she came on heat or was on heat at the time we got her, though she bled very little as we didn't know till it was too late. Our intact male got to her and now the bleeding is minimal but there's a straw colour like liquid now. Is this normal?

    (I have owned a b!!!! Before but she was spayed early on so this is new to me.)

    Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated

    Your vet can administer a mismate medication that will terminate an unwanted litter.

    Yes I'm aware of this but is this colour discharge normal considering what's happened or is it something to be concerned about?

    Sorry, I don't gave the experience to answer that. I assumed this was an unplanned and unwanted mating.

    If your bitch is at about 10-12 days into her season then the bleeding g tends to lessen or becomes straw coloured. This is the time that she will want to mate and is very likely to become pregnant.
    As she has been mated by your dog then she could well be pregnant. Take her see the vet and ask about the mismate injection called Alizin.

    Sorry about that, this one is but we were considering mating her on her next season then having her spayed after that. (I believe you wait for the season after the birth and then 3 months after that though I could be wrong). But I suppose if it happens now it happens; rookie mistake .

    So you are planning on mating a rescue dog? Is there any reason why? What breed are your dogs? Are they health and temperament tested?
    There are a lot of dogs in rescues without breeding more puppies

    Ah so the colour is normal? Great! And yes she's very receptive. You'll have to excuse that I seem very uneducated about this, but though I've owned dogs for years all the females have been spayed either before the first season or just after. This one is around 2 so the cycles are new to me so I'd thought I check. Thanks for your speedy reply!

    Considering but not set in stone. I don't think there will ever be a good enough reason for breeding dogs as there are many in shelters...though where I live they're practically empty! Admittedly I was gutted but so happy that they were being adopted. (I tried rescuing others before this b!!!!! but they were all going to there forever homes). It definitely won't be for money as there's normally no profit...unless it's dodge then you might (I do understand some genuine breeders can make a profit but speaking from my understanding from reading other posts about the matter). Both potential sire and dam are in good health (both recently had a health check and vet was very happy). Up to date with flea, worm and vaccines. Well socialised-have no problems with other dogs or children 3+. The b!!!!! is a schichon (Bichon frisé x shin tzu) and the male is a Bichon frise.

    It is normal for the blood loss during a season to become paler and a yellowy colour.

    There really is no good reason to produce more Crossbreeds.

    The responsible thing to do would be to take your bitch to the Vet and have the Mismate injection.

    Are you in the UK? You may be required to be licensed by the council if you plan to breed dogs. New rules introduced 1st October

    I'm considering it but is she isn't pregnant (male is inexperienced) would the injection harm her?

    Do, some councils are being very strict

    No, it won't harm her if she isn't pregnant.

    If your male mated her, then the likelihood is that she is pregnant.


    ETA : @Siskin makes a very good point. Under very new legislation, some areas require a person to be licenced to breed even one litter.

    What I mean is they didn't 'tie' or anything he was just humping her...(I then separated them)

    Just checked my councils website (which has been updated and includes the 2018 legislation). You only need a license if you breed more than 3 litters a year, and/or make a profit.

    Check with your councils. Some councils are applying it to just one litter. Also they are using HMRC rules over what constitutes a business. Anyone selling puppies and has an annual turnover of £1000 (not profit) could be liable. Do check with your council to see how they have interpreted the rules

    Just a thought, did the rescue not request that you had your girl spayed ? For most rescues it's a condition of adoption .

    Please get the mismate injection for your bitch, and then at a suitable time get her spayed. There really is no good reason to breed from her.
