    Get your dog to the vet right away, as the size disparity between the two breeds could cause a problematic pregnancy, and a difficult-at-best delivery. And there's no way of knowing what the pups will look like, which parent - if they survive, they will favor. I would reccomend getting your Saint neutered right away, to prevent any further accidental pregnancies.

    I agree with Karen, a definitely trip to the vets is in order. And you definitely need to get your dogs fixed, ASAP so this does not happen again! What are your plans for the babies??? You definitely need to trhink about this now, before the puppies even arrive!
    Maggie,

    I didn't slap you, I just high fived your Face!

    I realize you are smiling but I think most of us readers will be There are more than enough mixed puppies/dogs out there sitting in shelters waiting for homes to be bringing more into this world. I surely hope that you get your pets fixed. I also agree with Critter Crazy and Karen, you need to get you girl to the vet ASAP.

    I just wanted to add- It is very possible to spay your Pit now even if she's pregnant. We've done spays on dogs in heat to dogs well into their pregnancy. In many cases, it is the better of the two evils. Please consider this.

    As others have said, I'd get both of your dogs spayed and neutered ASAP. Puppies are very cute and exciting, but there is no need to bring more poorly bred dogs into this world, and especially mixed breeds at that. There are far too many unwanted dogs out there and dogs with temperament issues because of people breeding unethically. The only people out there who should be breeding dogs are the ones who are willing to do it properly with health certifications and such with a goal in mind to better their chosen breed.

    As far as the puppies' mix, there is zero way to tell what sort of temperaments and appearances they're going to have.

    I've seen a Pit Bill/St. Bernard Mix

    I've seen a pit bull/St. Bernard mix, the father was the pit bull for the one I saw and the mother was the St. Bernard. The puppy was shaped liked a St. Bernard but had short hair and was brindle like a Pit bull and as it grew generally looked like the biggest Pit Bull you ever saw, because of the jowls, but even when I last saw it at six months of age(when it weighed 76 lbs already and wasn't done growing) it was sloppy and friendly like a St. Bernard,just looked scary as h---.

    Interesting mix. I really hope you get BOTH your dogs to the vet right away and have them BOTH spayed/neutered! Yes, you will be aborting the pups, but you will be doing more good them you know. For eseveral reasons...

    1. I cannot stretch enough on how many homeless dogs there are in humane societies. Especailly mixed breed dogs.

    2. Having your dogs spayed/neutered will improve their overall health and could help add a few more wonderful years to their lives.

    3. The Size difference in these breeds are fatal...to both the puppies and the Pit Bull mother. Unless you would like to run a high risk of having dead puppies AND mother dog PLEASE spay her right away.

    Schedualing an emergancy spay like this is not a hard thing to do! Please call your vet or any vet right away! It could mean the life of your dog!

    Yes, puppies are an exciting thing to witness grow and develope. If you are really interested and think you can handle the emotional stress and the financail stress of raising a litter(yes, they take a big chunck out of your wallet) please become a foster parent at your local humane society. They would be thrilled to have a temparary home for a momma dog and puppies to stay until they are old enough to find homes.

    REST IN PEACE GRACIE. NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT I DON'T MISS YOU.

    I'm definetly not smiling.
    Get your dog to the vet, the puppies may not be able to be delievered because they might be the size of Saint Bernard puppies, too big to come out of a Pit...that's sad that they got pregnant Please get your dog neatuered and your pit spayed as soon as possible...I am esspecially upsetted by this because I rescue dogs that are about to be euthanized from the pound frequently, some of which come from an accidental litter and are brought to the pound, about to be killed because of the human who let the mother dog get pregnant instead of spaying her

    Rescue

    So I grabbed a puppy from a friends litter cause he has to get rid of them and it'd be nice for as few of them to die as possible. We thought the puppy might be pit/st. bernard. We know the mom is a pit, but we know nothing about the father. Reading this thread however I think maybe not, there were 0 complications during labor. However, the puppies are huge and have St. Bernard markings, is there a way I could tell? I was also thinking that a Pit/Boxer puppy? might look like a a Pit/Bernard puppy?

    it's so hard to tell when they are that small..as Karen said I think he is too small to be a saint mix. But you really can't tell too much at this age..he's cute none the less.. Good luck with him
