They swell and look preg for roughly a week after heat. You really need to wait until 1-2 months to do the "pooch test"Thanks! That's what I thought. Now another question - do the pooches smooth out (not pucker up) the day they are bred or does it smooth out after a month or two? Because they were running with bucks, I'm just wondering if Sadie's sister is for sure not bred or may show signs later.
