My dog is in heat...I have a 8-9 month old male that hasn't been fixed yet...well, they mated. What are the chances that she got pregnant from this? I believe this is the first time for both.

I cant believe this has happened. Just got both dogs and haven't had a change to fix either one yet.

Just like every young lover fears, not every romantic encounter will result in pregnancy, too many do. Since you were planning on neutering them both, I would suggest getting them to your veterinarian NOW and having them both tended to. I am sure they are marvelous pets and sadly there are too many fabulous dogs and cats that can't find loving homes. Have them neutered this week.
