    Not sure how old this question is but you should wait until they are 2 yrs old to breed. You should make sure the male is smaller than the female. Be careful as this is not a matter to take lightly and it is possible she would have to have a c-section or worse that she could die. Please keep in mind that there are tons of dogs that are homeless and being euthanized in shelters daily. Please be responsible and do not add to these numbers, spay/neuter your pets.
