I got a message on a local neighborhood forum about a very pregnant pit bull that nobody could catch in a really bad neighborhood. I tried to ignore it but of course this morning my husband and I headed over to "just" help catch her. I told myself I was definitely not coming home with a dog. A couple of our friends from the neighborhood were already there. They had set a dog trap, but hadn't had any luck. I tried to coax her over but she wasn't having any of it. I sat on the ground next to her for about an hour with a bowl of food. She would come up behind me and sniff me but then dart off. I finally got her to eat out of my hand and looped her. Now to get her in the crate without spooking her. I laid down with her and just started petting her. She finally started trusting me and I feel comfortable lifting her in the crate with the help of our friends. During the ordeal all sorts of interesting characters started asking us questions. It was pretty nerve racking. There was another pit bull across the street in a junkyard that kept walking up to us, next I plan on having a word with her owner about keeping his dog properly contained and offer to spay his dog. Our friends named the pregnant dog Bailey. When we got her home, she was a completely different dog, tail wagging and demanding we pet her. She curled up in my lap and started snoring like it was the safest nap she's ever taken. We have turned our bathroom into a whelping room. It looks like we won't be able to get her spayed before she has them. I think she's already in labor, we'll see....

She's about 5-6 years old and was obviously abused. She looks to be in good shape, a lot of people have been feeding her and bringing her blankets, they said she's been there for days not letting anyone get close to her.

Pretty sure baby #1 is almost here! There's fluid coming out of her vulva and she seems to be pushing. Only problem is that she is insisting on laying in my lap...

Your post made me cry! We've been to a local shelter twice over the last two days to see a very pretty staffie/ bullie looking girl- this is the girl we're hoping to adopt. And over those two days -maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours of being there we seen a total of 5 mama dogs with puppies, 3 adult huntin' dogs, 2 male labs, and 7 single pups being brought in! No kidding, 17 plus uncounted pups!

I'm so very glad she and her pups found folks like you to help her!

I heard back from one of our vets and she said it sounds like she is fine and not to worry unless she has a fever or starts acting distressed.
