Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Dr Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.
Are you asking if she is a suitable age for breeding or how to stop her humping the other dog?
Apologies for the delay.
So you are wanting to know if you think she will be able to cope with a pregnancy? Is she of a particularly nervous temprement would you say?
No not at all! Well from what you have described I would not necessarily see that as a reason not to breed her. However we must be mindful if whether breeding her is correct in other respects. Temprement of the dog is one consideration (dogs that are highly nervous, fearful or agressive towards people or other dogs probably so not be bred from), also her general state of health (no congenital abnormalities, hernia, undershort jaw, skin allergies etc). Finally there is the time and financial commitment from yourself to help raise the pups, find good homes for them and look after her and them if there are any problems (such as needed a c-section, which is rare but can happen). We also have to question why we are wanting to breed her, it offers not real benefit to herself and will put her body under some degree of physical and mental stress. If you don't think there is an issue with any of these things then I would see no other reason not to go ahead.
Good luck if you choose to go for it!
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
