Pekepoo Question

I have a friend that wants to find out health information before breeding her 5 and a half year...


I have a friend that wants to find out health information before breeding her 5 and a half year old peekepoo, boston terrier mix with a thoroughbred peekepoo. She does not want to risk it if there is any high risks of health issues by doing this. I would be very greatful to anyone who could answer this for me. Shyla is her baby, but someone has told my friend that it is more healthy for Shyla to have atleast 1 litter of puppies.

I'd check with your vet. The pure Pekeapoo will most likely be smaller than your pke/boston terrier so the size of the pups shouldn't be an issue. However, I had a peke-a-poo who turned out to have a serious heart murmer. They didn't catch it until she was 12 and if I had tried to breed her it would have killed her. Have your vet specifically check for that.

Breeding is a personal issue and needs to be done for the right reasons for dog and owners. I know of no reason to breed that will produce health benfits for the female especially when the female is already 5 1/2 years old. I can think of multiple health risks for the breeding female. It would be healthier for her to be spayed.
