You can read here about pregnancy termination in the dog
http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_pregnancy_termination.html
She is young to have a litter but five would be old to have one. Usually dogs are bred at about the third heat which is 18-24 months old.
I'd suggest discussing options with your vet right away.
Hope this helps you!
