Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for asking your question and trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 17 years of experience.

There is not an exact age to say a dog is too old. Generally there is more difficulty with conception over the age of 6. So between 4-6 you should be fine. You have to be cautious with our toy breeds when the female is the toy to ensure the male is not going to breed puppies that are too large. If so, then you will need to anticipate a cesarean section to deliver the puppies, and factor that into the cost of the entire process. Consultation with your vet prior to breeding would be beneficial.

I am at a point I need to know what questions you have. I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.

Please let me know if for any reason you need further clarification, have more questions, or were expecting a different type of answer.

If you received all the information you needed, then please take a moment to submit a rating.
