I'm not sure how long a dog goes into heat... I think it's every six months (i don't know how long) and I think gestation for dogs is about 63 days. I hope you don't plan on breedin though, your baby is beautiful and should be fixed. Not only will she live a longer, healthier life but you'll be doing your part in the overpopulation problem!
Breeding takes manyyears of reseach and a mentor to be done properly and for the right reasons. So have your baby fixed, we already have a boxer X in our family who is looking for a home and there are plenty more around the world who are homeless.
good luck

Hope you're not asking for Alee. Everything Lucky said is true and even if you want to going to breed her for some reason, she should be at least 2 years old.

Their first heat could be anywhere between 6-8 months, after that the general rule of thumb is every 6 months. A dog's pregnancy duration is 63 days. A dog should never be breed before 2 yrs of age. And you should do research on your breed, learn what to expect, the risks, the vet costs, etc. Your pup should also be health screened.

All dogs go into heat on average every 6 months. Some have different personal times, and also heat will be delayed by the body if the dog is sick. The pregnancy lasts 2 months and a week. But, so you won't have to worry about heat or puppies, you should get her spayed.
