not if it was an "accidental" breeding. that's an agreement you can make when you and the other dog owner breed your dog on purpose.

Nope. Puppies are the property of the owner of the mother, unless you have a contract in writing otherwise (which is drawn up before the mating even takes place... puppy back in lieu of stud fee). Now, I think if you wanted one, it would be kind of them to give it to you, but they certainly don't HAVE to.

Nope, but you ARE entitled to now be called an irresponsible pet owner for allowing your dog to contribute to the massive pet overpopulation in our shelters and rescues.
Unless your intact male dog was safely confined to his fenced yard OR was with you on a leash, allowing an intact male to roam thru the neighborhood is just as irresponsible as allowing an in heat female out loose.

No, not unless this was a planned litter with a signed, in-writing contract...
