Breeder in DC area to help~

Let me just preface this post by saying I am not encouraging or condoning irresponsible breeding, however, the safety of these pups and mother is the reason why I am posting this inquiry to the breeders in the DC area... OR if you are experienced in whelping puppies and would like to help.. If you are interested and are in the DC area, please send me a private message or email and I will put you in touch with the person who has details.

This is a cross post from an email list I am on, :

Anyone who would be willing to help a gentleman who has a young pair of Havanese expecting an oops litter? The bitch is 11 months old and due the beginning of Jan. He apparently also travels...is a doctor from Puerto Rico, I think is working through the public health dept in DC. Anyhow, he contacted me to see if I would provide whelping service and board the bitch and puppies and I am unable to. He sounded nice, and worried, so I told him I would try to find someone who might be available at least for advice when the time comes...

I am hoping that you find somebody. I live in the metro DC area but have zero experience and am basically useless LOL. However, I do know of a wonderful rescue group that fosters animals and they have had many pregnant dogs and the foster parents have the experience to handle this. If you want their contact information, I can pass it along. They may be able to help or to guide this man to somebody who could help. I worked with them to get Oreo and Snickerdoodle, two mis-identified havanese pups, adopted to members of this forum (I posted a lot about it on this forum awhile ago). They were wonderful and would most likely be willing to help.

I just sent you a PM with the information.

Again, I would love to help but I have no experience whatsoever and would be fairly useless. But if there is any way that I can be of help, please let me know. I have a big heart and what I lack in experience, I make up in my love for Havanese dogs.

It may be best to have him take her to the vet if you can't get anyone to help...he surely needs a midwife to come in...I hope it works out okay, keep us posted...

Thats my concern, Flynn, that if he is looking for local breeders, he may not want to take them to the vet ($), but we are a community that looks out for our fluff balls, so it will hopefully all work out!
