Female Westie about pregnancy


What age does a Westie first go into heat? Is it ok for them to become pregnant at this age or should they wait until the second time?

Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered. The Westie should come into it's first heat around 6 months. NO! Do not breed the dog then! You will kill it. A dog should not be bred until she is at least 2 years old.
