Male dogs become fertile sometime around 6-12 months old, same as females. I would assume that he IS capable of breeding a female now, and plan accordingly. I know of one dog owner who assumed his six-month old male was too young to breed and didn't separate him from his mother when she went into heat again... well, guess what, he ended up with a litter of pups whose father is also their older brother.
