Hello. I am sorry to hear you have some concerns about your dog being pregnant. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
Most dogs even though young will do fine, however often we worry about their mental maturity. In that area it is not uncommon to see young mothers not becoming the best mothers and some will not even want to nurse so bottle feeding could become necessary.
Since she is so young we also want to make sure she has really good nutrition during her pregnancy. If she has transitioned from puppy food to adult dog food then you would want to put her back on puppy food while pregnant and nursing.
With small breeds regardless of age some of the other things we worry about is that they may be to small to deliver naturally and a c-section may be needed. This is defiantly something you want to discuss with your vet.
Small breeds are also at higher risk for serious and often life threatening drop in calcium levels while nursing. The following article will discuss this is more detail. This is not something you have to worry about while she is pregnant but it is important that you know the warning signs once the pups are born. LINK
Nutrition and proper veterinary care during pregnancy should help to insure a good outcome.
I hope this helps. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.
