It's not breed-specific.
Male canines are capable of siring a litter from about 6 months and upward, but should not be bred under the age of two years because there are some health tests that cannot be certified until this age. To breed an unhealth-tested dog is to risk the puppies inheriting genetic health problems--including hip dysplacia, vonWillebrand's disease, and canine cyclic neutropenia (in some breeds).
Responsible breeding is far from simple. Anyone who is interested in breeding should read up thoroughly for at least two years and get themselves a reputable mentor.
My website is an *introduction* to the world of responsible dog breeding:
After he is old enough to have all his health clearances done... usually around two years since many of the testing organizations will not certify the results if the dog is not two years old yet.

When he has all of his final OFA clearances done, all testing for any common breed specific diseases, and has been titled in the show ring or other area.

24 months, hips ofa, elbows ofa, eyes certified, health certificate from vet.
Any working titles would be even better to top it off.

Yeah, it's not breed specific
But a general guideline is never breed a dog younger than a year and a half. Best two years. Or older than seven years.

A male dog of any breed can breed around 6 months of age however, please wait until the dog is at least 1 or 2 years of age before you breed your dog.
