How could you possibly know at 14 weeks old if the dog would be a suitable stud dog? By the time he is proven your bitch will be or close to 7. I wouldn't breed a dog that age.

He needs to be at least two years old to pass his health testing, that's the bare minimum. He also needs to have proven that there is a reason he SHOULD be used for breeding. Having testicles is not a reason.

All I have to say about this is: No.

All of these.. and your female should be proven and health tested as well. I really hope your not a BYB. Shame on you.

An older virgin bitch is less likely to conceive and more likely to have complications. By the time the male is old enough, she will be 7 - technically a senior dog. What are your reasons for wanting to breed her? What breed is she, and have you done the health clearances recommended for the breed? Examples: hip and elbow xrays, eye checks, dna test for problems specific to the breed, etc. I won't even ask about health clearances for the male, since he won't be old enough for much of it until he is two. What are the things about Sasha that make her breed-worthy?
