Bad litter?

Post by Dartmoordog » Mon Nov 13, 2017 5:25 pm

Looking for a bit of advice from gundog breeders please.

A friend of mine’s ESS bitch has just had a litter of 8, but 2 of the bitches were unfortunately still born, leaving 5 dogs and 1 bitch pup. The bitch is a fine working gundog and the stud dog is owned by a local keeper. So good stock.

Would the health of the other pups be of any concern, or as my instinct tells me, it is just one of those things.

Cheers.

Just one of those things,stillborn are in no way indicative of an unhealthy litter.

Cheers westcountry, I just needed that reassurance as I really want a dog pup from that litter. Great bitch and stud dog, so now it starts again. 👍
