    Default Question on Umbilical Hernia, and Puppy Pictures!

    Good Afternoon All! Hope you're having a great day! It has been forever since I've been on here, because logging on everyday without a puppy was just upping up my anxiety. Ha!! So, I got an e-mail from my breeder today and she sent pictures of three puppies that are available. We are determined to get a boy, and the two we like are below. Honestly, we're sold on Skeet. He has my heart!! My only question for you guys is about an umbilical hernia. From what I've read, it's not an issue. Is this something that I should be concerned about, would it affect him at any point in his life, or likely to? I know no one can predict the future, but I wanted to see what you guys think or know about it. Should this be something I concern myself with or be a 'red flag' in the future? One of the puppies has it, and I just want to know more about it. I'm doing the research online, but wanted to see if there were any personal experiences to share.

    Here are the boys below! I'm 99% sure Skeet will be our "Porter"... Ah, I can smell the puppy breath now! I. Can't. Wait.

    Our bulldog had a litter of pups in Dec, and one of her puppies had an umbilical hernia. We just had to clean her up, and it actually dried up & fell off on it's own. He had told us that if it didn't heal up we would have to do surgery, but by the time she went to her forever home it had healed up. I don't think this is a major issue, in fact I believe they do that surgery when the spay/neuter them... but I would consult a Vet to be sure. They both are REALLY CUTE... OMG!!!

    We are getting Skeet. His name will definitely be Porter, but he's our guy. We just called and confirmed with our breeder. She said he will get the surgery at eight weeks, then we will get him after. I'd rather do that just to be sure everything is a-okay. It doesn't seem to be a huge deal, but I'm glad to hear from someone who's had a puppy with it that it's really not an issue.

    I honestly think it's pretty common... our Vet said it was because all the pups were sucking on each other!!! LOL I've only had one litter, so believe me I don't consider myself an expert.

    Jake and 3 of his brothers had umbilical hernias. They often disappear on their own, Jake's was repaired at the same time as his neuter. We were to,d they are caused by the mother when she messes with the umbilical area. Too much and too hard can cause these. They are lumps on the inside it did cost a bit more with the neuter, but my breeder paid for it.

    Porter is adorable! I know what you mean about puppy breath--there's nothing like it!

    Thank y'all so much! I'm so excited. I absolutely can't wait to get him. It's nice to hear all the good reports on the hernias. Since we aren't getting him neutered, I'm actually glad she's getting his procedure done for the hernia. At least that way I know he'll be safe and sound! We have been waiting on this little guy since March, when we put our deposit down. Finally, there were some puppies born and now we're actually within weeks of bringing our little guy home! I have most things ready, but going to start stocking up on toys and some small things! Y'all have a great day!
