Please do not breed your dog. Only ONE out of every 600 pit bulls ever finds a home. There should only be a very few reputable breeders having litters. All of the rest should be spayed/neutered.

No deffinately not her first time.
You should wait until her second heat.

She should not be breed until she is at LEAST 2 years old.
I am not even going to start about responsible breeding and the fact that thousands of dogs are put to sleep while waiting for there forever homes in shelters.

No, not until she is 2 years old. Why do you want to breed anyway? You obviously haven't studied the way you should. You probable think that you'll make a mess of money, right? Wrong. Dead wrong. When breeding is done right, it can get so expensive that you spend more than you make a profit of. And to do it the wrong way makes unhealthy puppies. Do your dog, yourself, and dogdom a favor and study first. If, after studying for at least 2 years, you think it's too much trouble, get your dog spayed!
Here's a couple of places to begin your studies:

NO dog, regardless of breed or size, should ever be bred on the first heat.
Breeding a dog on her first heat is the dog equivalent of a young girl on her first period becoming pregnant. Yes, a 12-year old can have a baby, but that does not mean she should. Same with your dog. Yes, she can be pregnant, but that doesn't mean she should be. She lacks the maturity to properly take care of the puppies.
A dog should never be bred before 2 years of age. You want to make sure that her adult temperament has come out - between 1 and 2 years of age, that she can have her hips and elbows certified (OFA does not certify before 2 years), on top of everything else that needs to be done to breed responsibly.

abby k-9, congratulations on answering the first honest, unbiased and only fact related answer on breeding I have ever seen. Your super. I don't agree with uneducated breeding, but it's incredibly frustrating to see people answer questions based just on their opinions and not any fact. It's almost nerve racking to ank a question sometimes because of how people can react and not really provide an answer. Congrats again, on answering questions with honest, knowlegable advice!

im going to be completely honest and please read everything. You shouldnt breed her for a lot of reasons. A lot of people only want pitbulls for one thing only. They may say oh yeah i want her to be a companion but then they turn around and fight them, no control over them, and let people see another "bad pitbull" when its the actual owners fault for not raising him/her correctly. Please leave breeding for the professionals. Yes i do wanna breed shepherds in the future, BUT i read all about them- character, history and so on.. I only wanna breed for the better of the breed, having the correct structure, and temperament. Thats when im in the AKC and in the show ring which i am planning to do when i get older. But until then i spay and neauter my dogs and please so should you. Pitbulls are awesome dogs when they have responsible owners, and correctly socialized. You need to know the parents temperament and feel extremely comfortable with them.

NO NO and more NO!!! Looking for answers here is a great starting block but if you plan on breeding your dog, you need to let her be a puppy for 2 years. Not only does this let your dog enjoy her life with you, develop, gain maturity and strength, it will give you time to RESEARCH!!!You need to research her lines, see if there are any genetic issues in the last 5 generations, this means you need to contact her breeders and the parents breeders and so on. You also need to research the actual process of pregnancy and birth in dogs and be prepared for any and all issues that may occur. Breeding is never to be taken lightly, there are many issues and problems you will need to prepare for. It is a hard road and very costly in all aspects.
