Dachshund 3 years, 2nd litter.
lst litter 1 year ago - one pup by Caesarean section
Now, the breeder had waited over 12 hours after the water bag had burst. "I can hear very faint heart beat," he told me. "Be quick in your Caesarean section to save the puppies!"
He explained: "The dam was running around and was active."
I did not ask why he took such a long time to come for surgery as the best advice is less than 2 hours after the water bag had ruptured.
2 black stained puppies covered by muddy liquid of decomposed placentas.
Both had died a long time ago.
