Hi JaCustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today. I answered this at 2:15 but realized I did not check the box allowing you to rate my answer so I have edited to allow that function.

If your girl and the male achieved a tie (stuck together) and he was only neutered 3 days ago, it is still possible for her to become pregnant. Some experts say it is possible up to a month post neuter. Since the testicles are removed during the neuter, the sperm is what is already in the tract. Your best bet will be to try and keep them apart until her heat cycle is finished and hope that she doesn't become pregnant as a result. it is entirely possible she is already pregnant but you won't be able to tell one way or another until she is close to 21 days pregnant and even then you will need an ultrasound to determine pregnancy that early.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to press the reply to expert or continue conversation button so I can address any issues you still have .
