How long is a Belgian Malinois pregnant?

Most Belgian Malinois are pregnant between 58 and 64 days. The expected date of delivery varies slightly depending on the breed and size of the Belgian Malinois and the size of the litter it carries, but most dogs will be delivered on day 63. If you know the date of your female Belgian Malinois, you can count 63 days from that date, and you can quite accurately determine the date she is going to give birth to. It’s best to prepare a special bed for her about two weeks before the due date.

Prematurely born Belgian Malinois

Although some Belgian Malinois was born 63 days earlier, puppies born earlier than 58 days are either still born or will die within the first few days. This is because their lungs are the last part of the body to develop, and this happens in the last few days. The 58th day is the earliest day when the puppies are born and survive. Although by 58 days, the lungs were not fully developed, they had developed to the point where they could start to work, which gave the dog a chance to survive.
Prematurely born Belgian Malinois dogs have bright pink claws with no hair on them. If this is your first child, you’d better consult your veterinarian. If you don’t know the date of your Belgian Malinois, you can use the time of your last estrus as a guide. Take the date in the middle of her last heat cycle as the date of conception, and then calculate 63 days. Of course, this is not very accurate, but it will let you know when you should start preparing for delivery (two weeks ago).
