Need help, Is my pitbull pregnant?

First off, her name is Cali a 10 month old pitbull. She was in heat in March-April. Now her nipples( Sorry if this isn't the right term) are very large. They have been like this for a month or so. She is also lactating. My brother took her to the Dog park a few times so it could have happened then.
I have posted pictures so you guys can further help me.

Sorry, I am not quite sure what you are saying. I am guessing like a false pregnancy? I really don't know.

yes, a false pregnancy. if you want to truely find out before a possible litter drops on the ground you can have an ultrasound preformed.

What causes a phantom pregnancy?

I would NEVER believe this, but I have seen this happen to another pitbull about 3 years ago.
Yet, if I recall correctly, she did not lactate.

Why does that happen?

However, if I had to guess, browndogmike, I think your dog may be pregnant from the looks of it.

But, I am NO expert, but you might need to take her to the vet asap to definitely find out.

Ugh, I really don't want her to have puppies! Is she too young? She is only 10 months old.
It will cost $42 to see if she is pregnant though my vet. Ugh money I don't have.

welcome to the wonderful world of dog ownership. 42 bucks is chump change compared to what you're going to have to fork out for the puppies if she has them. youre best bet is to get her spayed and abort the puppies if she's pregnant if you can't afford the ultrasound.

browndogmike,
Trust me, I do understand.

Well, if she went into heat, I say no - her body isn't too young, but I've always heard NOT to breed the first heat - that psychologically they could be too young.

If it happened in March/April, she would be having puppies in a month or so, right?

Yes, the I understand when you don't want them to have puppies- ESPECIALLY when you do NOT know with what type/breed of dog.

When she went to the park, did anyone (that took her) witness her mating with another dog?

This would take a few minutes, right?
It couldn't happen like a bathroom break, could it?

When it comes to breeding, I am clueless, but I would imagine that someone would have noticed that at a park?

I wish you the best of luck.

Also, yes a dog can lactate durring a false pregnancy. 10 months is really too young to responsibly have pups. She could be a great mom, but since bully breeds mature slower then most other breed types they are more often not good mothers earlier in life.

I am pretty sure it is to late to them aborted. I was going to breed her later on. I didn't want her to get pregnant!! My brother took her to the dog park when she was in heat and didn't watch her!
I will fork out the cash. I am going to take her to the vet sometime this week. Can anyone tell how far along she is. And thanks for the quick replies guys!

Ok, I didn't know that they could lactate during a false pregnancy.
But, if I think about it, I guess it is possible.
Thank you.

This other female that I spoke of, did not lactate, but had all the other signs - breast swelling, etc...

What causes them?

Same EXACT thing happened to Maile. However...what we thought was her 'lactating' was more of a cream color than white which quickly turned to clear...they kind of bothered her when squeezed so I talked to my vet about it and she said to sqeeze em until nothing else came out (literally took 5 minutes). Her teets have returned to normal and there are no puppies (I knew she wasn't preggers cuz I had x rays done the week before because she ate razor blades...brings new meaning to her being a Razors Edge, hahah, but that exact thing happened to her!) Try squeezing em. Keep a towel handy to wipe and don't aim at anything you don't want squirted. I also wiped them with alcohol just in case when I was finished.

I will try that, but will that hurt her? And will it be bad if she is pregnant?

Oh, no!
I would bet money that she is pregnant.

I would estimate her to be about 4-5 weeks.

Again, I'm no expert, though.
