dog showing on heat

my dog used to show her uterus on heat till the vet fixed it, was just wondering if she can still have a litter? she hasnt showed since the vet put a stitch in to hold it (which was only during her first heat).

I don't see a reason why your dog could not or should not become pregnant, since no reproductive organs were removed, and the uterus is held in the correct place.  But I am not a vet... this is just my opinion.  Please double-check with your vet.  Blessings - Blu

Sorry, why do you want to breed your dip of?  I would never consider breeding a dog that had any problems like this.

so if you had problems would that stop you from having babys? my dog is a family member and i would love for her to have a litter!

Strange way to phrase your question to Margot49, but I will assume you are still interested in breeding your dog.  

Please have a discussion with your vet who has the experience and training, not to mention seeing the specific issue, to advise if it is safe to breed your dog.  I assume too you are planning the old fashioned way, not artificial insemination. The latter would, it seems to me, work around any physical interference the stitch may cause.

I am guessing, but it may be necessary to remove the stitch when it is time for delivery.

I will admit I do not understand Margot's question : "breed your dip of?"  Perhaps you do and that is why I don't understand your response.

I'm assuming 'dip of'' was an autocorrect fail :) If you are determined to breed your dog I would definitely check with your vet on not only the safety for your dog but to see if the prolapse was caused or could have been caused by a genetic problem. You do not want to bring more dogs into the world with health problems.

I don't know what it's like in your country. Here in the US we have sooo many pit bulls in shelters and rescues that the last thing we need is more being bred 'just to have a litter'. One of my pits is champion ADBA bloodlines (her mom was a grand champion also).  She was spayed at 6 months just like my rescues. Just food for thought.

Yes, sorry.  This iPad has a mind if it's own.  
Sounds like irresponsible breeding ph.  Yes, all Shelters are full of Pitts and Pitt mixes due to irresponsible people breeding.  
And again, I would never consider breeding a dog with those issues and it certainly may be a genetic issue in that line.  Wonder how much research has been done by this person.  Sorry, I just to not support irresponsible breeding because someone wants a litter of pups.
Off my soap box as I am sure I am preaching to the choir.

Yeah, I'm the choir! :) Thanks for repeating yourself so much on this issue. I only reply every so often when I can stop banging my head against the wall! You keep hanging in there - like a pit bull lol

Just on Petfinder.com alone, there are 20,254 (Yes, twenty THOUSAND) Pit & Pit mixes looking for adoptive homes.....This will NEVER happen for most of these poor souls! All of this is from irresponsible breeding & it's mainly the off spring that have to suffer the consequences! Please, DO NOT add to the problem......If you want a puppy, please adopt one & save a life!!!!!   Karla

Just what the poor pit bulls waiting to be adopted in shelters need, more puppies that will be adopted instead of them. In every shelter in our area  at least three quarters of the poor dogs are pit bulls.  If you want to see puppies, volunteer at a shelter, don't make more.

why not go to the shelter and adopt a younger pitbull or pitbull mix and then she  may start taking care of that puppy like it was her own.
