For Educational purposes :
A Dog or Cat getting pregnant after being Spayed is IMPOSSIBLE.
If she gets pregnant the surgical procedure that was performed can not be called SPAYING.

NB: On the other hand, a spayed animal can come into heat ( show signs of heat).

Can dogs show signs of being in heat (Estrus) After Spaying?
Answer is 'Yes'.

Female dogs go through several stages during their reproductive cycle. Symptoms of estrus usually occur about twice a year with an infertile resting period in between. The spaying operation, called an ovariohysterectomy, includes complete removal of the uterus and ovaries, the tissues that release hormones and create the estrus cycle. After spaying, your dog’s reproductive cycle should cease and she should not exhibit any more estrus symptoms. Sometimes however, over the course of the operation, part of the ovarian tissue is overlooked and left behind. This part may continue to release hormones which activate fertility and your dog may appear to be in heat even though she is no longer able to get pregnant. This is called ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS.)
Other Causes of Estrus Symptoms After Spaying in Dogs:
* Failure to remove all of one or both ovaries during surgery
* Accidental dropping of ovarian tissue into the abdominal cavity during surgery
* Ectopic ovarian tissue – ovarian tissue which develops in another part of the body (rare)
