Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.Dogs do not tend to express depression when not bred. In fact, they should not be bred each time that they have a heat cycle. With this in mind, I would not yet breed your girl. She is too young. If you intend to breed her, she needs to be at least 24 months before doing so. Her body is still growing and it is not fair to her to strip her of this opportunity to grow and mature by her becoming a mother at such a young age.You can learn more about responsible breeding here: http://www.akc.org/dog-breeders/responsible-breeding/Also, make sure that when you have bred her that you are prepared for the cost and potential for her to need a costly c-section. Not all bitches are lucky enough to produce puppies on their own and c-sections can set owners back $1500-$3000 depending on where, where and in what state the surgery is performed.If you have any other questions, please let me know.
