Just my opinion I breed AKC Boston Terriers and I suggest that you wait for your female to fully develop 1 year old is to young for really any female to be bred. Breeding at that young of a age will increase the chances of complications such as her smothering the pups, having labor complications, or refusing to nurse the pups. She is still a pup herself at 1-2 years old. Is she from a free whelping bloodline? The larger around 15lb and up females have a greater chance to free whelp a litter. I do not breed my female Boston or Mastiff females until they are over 2 years old and honestly on their 3rd heat. Bostons go in at 9months old and every 6 months after. My 19 pound female was bred at 35months old she free whelped a litter on 1/1/12 5pups and 8/17/12 7pups and she looks great pups are healthy and happy lovely and excellent quality! Females stay in heat up to about 21 days you can and should read up and consult with your vet before breeding. Good LUCK!!!
