If you have your dog spayed prior to her going into heat, you will reduce her risk of mammary tumors to only 0.05% (there is 26% once she goes through heat cycles). You will also eliminate the 25% lifetime risk of pyometra (uterine infection) and the possibility of contributing to the overpopulation epidemic.

A first heat can range anywhere from 6 months to two years with about 8 to 12 months being the average. Smaller breeds normally will come in heat earlier than larger breeds, but anywhere within that time frame is considered normal.

i agree with detia and do get her spayed because the more people breed the more dogs die leave breeding to the animal shelters or people like that
