Another good reason to think about desexing your dog. ...

Do you know how many puppies, a pair of dogs can produce in one year? Puppy Maths is a school resource that shows growth of dog populations if a female dog and her offspring are left undesexed and able to reproduce. It includes maths equations that teachers can complete with students, addressing both messages on the importance of desexing dogs as well as addition and counting. One adult female dog produces on average 5 puppies in a litter. A female can start producing litters at 6-10 months and have about 2 litters a year. The original puppies grow up and the females (two grey dogs and tan dog) can start producing young. The mother and these grown females produce another litter of 5 each. This results is 26 dogs in total (includes mum, all mums puppies and her first litters puppies) The four adults and their female puppies that have now grown and can reproduce produce another 5 puppies each. There are now 91 dogs. You can download the Puppy Maths Powerpoint for free at www.amrric.org/resources/view/453 Please share our resources :)

We all hope he will stay out of trouble now. The Ark is also servicing remote communities, please contact us to discuss options if your pet needs veterinary attention. ...
