2/24/10 It's not necessarily a certainty even when you have witnessed a true tie. Often females will go into a false pregnancy especially if they have been around males during their cycle. I wouldn't panic just yet but would wait for further signs of pregnancy. Most likely the male never made full contact with the female and if it was only the one time he probably just tied "outside" the female and no harm done. I bought a 4 yo adult "proven" male dachshund to use for stud and that's all he has ever done for me. No puppies yet! Debra
