Salt Lake City-based TikTok user Paisen @paibaiiii documented her dog's pregnancy, explaining that her brother's golden retriever accidentally got her German shepherd pregnant.
The video shows her dog and explains: "My brothers dog got my dog pregnant one months before he was due to get fixed and this is how it went... "A lot of emotions with hours, days, weeks of research and vet appointments. "60 days of so much planning and preparing for the best possible outcome. "Birth did not go as planned. $6,000 emergency c section. "Nursing 11 pups was hard on mom so they had to be bottle fed every 2 hours. We hardly got any sleep for weeks."
The male dog was scheduled to be neutered but the pregnancy came shortly before and totally by accident.
Earth and Animal Advocates report that 27 million cats and dogs are born in the U.S each year and that: "Because homes cannot be found for all of them, between 10 and 12 million of these animals will be euthanized." The Humane Society references a study by the University of Georgia based on the medical records of more than 70,000 animals which showed that neutered male dogs lived 13.8 percent longer than unneutered males dogs, and with spayed female dogs the difference in life expectancy was discovered to be 26.3 percent.
