    I haven’t had a lot of experience with pregnant dogs but she does look pregnant to me, mainly because her teats are getting bigger.

    She looks pregnant…the teats give her away  Try to softly feel her belly for a few minutes.  You should be able to feel the pups moving around in there.  They swim all over the place!  Dogs usually are pregnant for 9 weeks and start to show about 5-6 weeks.  She might be about 7 weeks along!

    I would get her to a vet if you aren’t sure, but I think you should google and start preparing for pups.

    She doesn’t look fat to me. But her nipples are pretty big…

    She looks prego…. you can tell more if you look at her head-on.  Puppies are arranged kind of like a little pearl necklace so she will look bigger horizontally.  If she’s just tubby usually the fat hangs down more vertically. 

    Plus, that would be a lot of weight to put on in a month and a half!!  Looks like you’re gonna have some pups pretty soon!

    She’s not fat.  You can still see her ribs through the skin in those photos.  That being said, she’s definitely gained weight.  The teats make me think preggers, but to my completely untrained eye, it doesn’t look like pregnancy weight.  One way or or another, you need to get her to a vet stat.

    Whose dog is this?

    PS. Gestation is 60 days, so she’s probably due very soon.

    Your dog looks pregnant. Have you taken her to the vet? from the looks of it she could have pups within the next couple of weeks!

    I think you need to take her to the vet tomorrow.  Is the vet open then?  Tell the vet about the shots, too.  Let us know what happens!
