PUPPIES! 17 days old
  • 0
  • Okay so here goes. For starters before anyone asks why Anubis is not fixed…I am looking for another vet who does not use Ketamine as a Anesthetic. He had seizures when my old vet used that to try to sedate him for surgery. So since I hadn't tried. My now EX roommate got a Beagle who was supposedly spayed (apparently she was not). I left for a week to visit relatives...when I came back she told me Anubis had got together with her and she went into heat but couldn't keep them separate. We contacted the old owner of the Beagle and they refused to answer our call. NOW my ex roommate is now an ex roommate and no longer a friend due to some non related reasons. She left the Beagle, named Honey Bear with me and now I have 9 Basenji/Beagle puppies. ALL except 3 look like him. Im waiting for them to get older to see what kind of tail they will be taking on. Some have bigger round ears like mom and the rest have short pointy ears. Theres 4 girls 5 boys. One of the girls is Tri Colored. Brown face markings and some brown on her body like mom. And 2 boys have brown facial markings as well. Here's some recent pics of them.

  • Are you planning on keeping the mom and or a puppy from the litter? Just curiousity, I'm so very nosy and intrigued!

  • Mom is staying of course. She ended up mine when my roommate left..and the girl in the post with the mom is the one I chose. Her name is Chloe.

  • Keep in mind that bitches after giving birth can and do have a "season" within 3 to 5 months of having puppies… so you need to get her spayed as soon as possible. And if you are keeping a bitch puppy, same... she could come in season as early as 4 month... DO NOT wait to either spay or get your male neutered

  • Neutering him is waiting till I find a vet that doesnt use Ketamine…he had seizures. And since the prices from the puppies are going towards the vet and spaying her she's getting spayed as soon as she can be spayed same goes with Chloe. So I am well aware of all that. And Anubis isn't getting touched unless im certain the vet isnt using ketamine...Im not risking him having another seizure.

  • Have you talked to the vet about using a different protocol for him? Just because the use of Ketamine is their normal protocol doesn't mean they won't use a different protocol if you discuss with them why it is necessary for your dog. Many vets use Ketamine but every vet I have talked to about my dogs and the family history with Ketamine agree that it would be safest to just use a different protocol for them.

  • Im checking with the local spay neuter clinic…Ive heard that they never use Ketamine in their office that they use a different sedative thats safer. I will be making the call on Wednesday when im actually around to make calls. I was told about them through my dads friend at work. Yeah Anubis went into a seizure attack (hes never had a history if seizures) on the table at my old vet. I moved about a month or so ago back to the area of OK where I grew up and have had all my vet records sent to the vet nearby who are very good. So they know about his Ketamine reaction. They even told me the local ABC (Animal birth control) clinic is good because they have different sedatives they use. Getting the call from my old vet about his seizures was very scary. I never want to hear that again.

    Ask your vet about Isoflurane. Also, you can search Isoflurane on this forum. Lots of info.

  • Thank you Kipawa! I will ask them about it. I believe thats what the ABC clinic uses.

  • I have one question, and please don't hate me for asking. When you found out about the breeding, why didn't you just terminate the pregnancy, since the bitch was to be spayed anyhow? Obviously a moot point now, but I'm curious. I do hope you find good homes for the puppies, but as we all know the world doesn't really need more cross bred "accidents", no matter how cute.

    Same question here, did both parents do the health tests? How is the personality of both of them?
    It is always someting to think about before "just" let them be born later.
    They are sure cute :)

    In Holland there aren't much Basenji's and I really can be so mad if I see a mix basenji out of a planned combination, but allright a oopslitter can happen but really.. they must be walking with their eyes closed…
    In Holland, there are so much people having Oops litters, they call it oops litters but most of them are just a nice defense of having a litter for fun.. Breeding is not just fun, but people don't realize that very often... 9 pupies means, being responsible for many many years .. Caus you don't just be responsible untill they leave, you are responsible their whole life..
    Do I understand your ex roommate, just dumped the mom with you and left? Why? She made the mistake..
    Great you kept her and great that you will take care of her!

  • Oops litters happen all over and even some experienced breeders will use the 'oops' factor as an excuse. Sorry, but I think your ex-roommate is an idiot. She really dumped on you. However, kudos to you for doing the right thing.

  • 0
  • I would have to ask the same thing? Once you knew that she had been bred, did you consider ending it by having her spayed immediately? Just a question, because even the best of breeders can have a opps. It happens….

  • Your little "baseagles" are adorable accidents - I hope you can find homes for them - it's a very interesting mix.
