my puppy is hung up with another dog. They can't seem to be able to get apart. What can I do?
How old is your puppy?
Are you referring to the fact that they are "tied", as two dogs are after a successful breeding?

my puppy is 7 months old. She will be spaded when she gets out of heat. the other dog doesn't seem to know what to do. they r both the same size

Where are they stuck together? Are they stuck at the genitals? Are they facing away from each other with their rear ends stuck together?

yes and they are facing away from each other
This is called a "tie" and it happens at the end of mating. You SHOULD NOT attempt to pull them apart, as you could severely injure one or both of them. The tie can last anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes. In 23 will be able to have your veterinarian palpate your puppy to see if she may be pregnant.

If you wish to terminate the pregnancy, she can be spayed at any time.
