Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

At what age does a puppy go on heat for the first time? Also can being around an unfixed male that is trying to mount (we separated them after he tried and FAILED), cause the puppy to go in heat early?

Around 6 months give or take a little time is when they usually go in. Being around a dog that wants to mount won't usually speed the process up but if he is wanting to mount then more than likely she is getting close to coming in. Unless she is way young and then his mounting could just be a way of him telling her where she ranks in the pack according to him. If she is close of age you will need to watch like a hawk, never leave them alone together, and possibly get diapers to put on the female to save your house from the blood and it can also serve as a bit of a barrier to protect her from the male. Once she is out of heat, usually in 3 weeks, then you can get her fixed. You could go ahead and get the male fixed now, if he's yours, but males can still be fertile for a few months after the procedure so you won't be saved the headache this time around even if you do get him fixed now.

She's almost 3 months old and the other dog isn't ours, it's my father in laws Shih Tzu that was causing the problem. Needless to say I was extremely mad that I wasn't told he wasn't fixed before going over there. We're more then likely getting our husky fixed soon.

First heat cycles can happen anywhere from as early as 5 months to as late as 18 months.  No, mounting and humping cannot cause an early estrous.  Humping/mounting is not entirely sexual, though it's a good idea to separate like you did.  Young puppies can often contract UTIs and Vaginitis that may make them smell more enticing to a male even not being fertile.
