Also because she is so young make sure you keep a very close eye on her. She might sit on one or pic it up wrong and kill it by acident.

Love it caleybooth! I usually assist in deliveries too but there are some people who I swear litterally sit on the dog and are so far up the dogs butt it's unreal! Lol my friend breeds boxers and I have been there for every birth helped her clean them up :) .just make sure to give her space u don't have to stick ur fingers up the vaginal canal every 5 mins to see if a pup is coming (I had a client do that it was crazy). And english mastiffs are beautiful your very lucky! I really like the African mastiffs myself but English is my second choice! :)

Myhorsesonador...I am with you there, raw diet would be great but it's so time consuming :( and expensive. They sure do love it tho when they get it! :)

She was breeding in Florida, but we have both moved out of state since. Female brindle and fawn male. I would love a white boxer!! All of her pups were brindle and fawn like the parents.

The reds and the fawns are my favorite! Whites are cute but it seems like all the white boxers get allergies...and are more predisposed to cancer. :( but maybe there is something in this horrid state (Indiana) making that happen. If she ever gives another white boxer I'll keep u in mind :)

12 puppies are common with the mastiffs. I've had several litters with that many. My mentor had a bitch that had 18 last spring! She was worn ragged having to bottle feed constantly! When I have more than 6 I supplement bottle feed.

Oh yeah, one thing I was going to mention but forgot - green discharge BEFORE the first puppy is usually a sign of distress, that means the placentas are detaching. Green discharge AFTER the first puppy is normal. Watch for large amounts of blood, that could signal a uterine rupture. I think that labs usually have pretty smooth whelpings, so you are probably not going to have issues.
