At 2 years of age, it can have a litter theoretically. But to be safe, and make sure everything goes as planned, it is recomended to wait until it gets to 3 years old.
Answer by Miss Ginger is Fancy
Never. If your dog is spayed, which is the responsible, healthy choice for her, she can never have puppies.
You do want to do the best thing for her, don't you?
Please spay your dog and DON'T contribute to the dog over-population crises we are facing.

Fare enough you have your opinion! I cam understand in some ways but come on its the staff’s that need to stop being bread for starters they can be dangerous in some cases like the locking of their jaw this person’s is asking pacific questions about her chihuahua! Everybody well most obviously love Chihuahuas I have two myself. It’s recommended to start breeding at 2 years +. One of my Chihuahuas got pregnant on accident I didn’t even know she was in season but got caught by a mate of mines chihuahua yes she got pregnant she was only a 1 yr and a half at this point no plans on her being bread as I had an appointment for her at the vets to be spayed but that couldn’t happen. She had a healthy litter of 4 gorgeous puppies and gave birth to them naturally with no problems at all. Barring in mind she was not a teacup she was standard size. I haven’t a clue what size your pup is but o wouldnt recommend golf she’s too small ask your vet what they think :-) xxx
Answer by helpfull2u
wait at least a year to a year and a half, gestation is 6 weeks, dont breed too often or too much it is hard on dogs, and spay her to prevent when you dont want to breed her

I know there are people who abuse animals to make money but you are not going to change those kind of people. The people who are giving good advice about the best time to breed and not trying to talk people out of it are cool.I have worked with dogs in one way or another for for at least 40 years. I know people have to be careful with these small dogs, especially the teacup, From what I have heard there may be some irresponsibility in breeding the teacups but I am not going to be condescending. I would never breed my dog before a year and if I wanted to breed her again, which I probably will not, I would wait another year.
