    Is it possible for 1 litter to have more than one sire?

    The bitch is a GSD "purebred" (this is AK after all) the sires could be a Great Dan, and Aussie Shepherd, or a Rottie. I only saw my neighbors pup so I cant say for the whole litter.

    Is it possible for more than 1 sire for a litter? This is for my own curriosity only.

    The individual puppies in the litter could have different sires, but one puppy can't have two different sires. This is why a lot of people breed a bitch 3 days in a row, they have a better chance of having a larger litter or the breeding taking because she can concieve each day.

    Agree...that's why the pups were either black or blond... no bi-coloration.

    Wait, so technically you could have purebreds *and* mutts out of the same litter? Trippy...

    Correct. And nowadays, thanks to DNA, the sire/sires of the pups can be determined.

    Yes, unlike humans that release one egg to be fertilized, dogs release multiple eggs possibly on different days. If a dog breeds with a border collie today, those eggs will be fertilized by the border collie sperm. If that same dog releases eggs tomorrow and breeds with a boxer then those eggs will be fertilized by boxer sperm. Hence a mixed litter of border collie sired puppies and boxer sired puppies. Although, it is my understanding that one egg can't be fertilized by both boxer and border collie sperm.

    That's what I've understood too and it would have been too confusing to answer Manchester.....so to add now to the confusion... Dam : Golden Sires : Golden and a Lab .... puppies : pure golden long hair (gold) , pure black ( 1/2 golden 1/2 Lab ) yellow/gold short coat 1/2 golden 1/2 lab.

    I don't get that. But, maybe it's because I am flighty. I don't know. But I have always found it interesting that a bitch can get impregnated by two different dogs.

    I think it means not sure but here's my guess anyway


    If you take a golden bitch--100% golden and she mates with a golden and a yellow lab then you get glodies and you get Mixes.

    So 1/2 golden & 1/2 yellow lab

    I think means 1/2 the puppies are goldens and 1/2 are yellow labs [mutts]

    Yes, you are right. Just remember 1 sperm fetilizes 1 egg. Dogs release multiple eggs, so there could even be more than two sires depending on timing!!
