My friends oldest springer mated with the young bitch while friend was at work . The bitch only 11 months will she get pregnant and will she be able to carry pups it was her first time in heat.


How long do springers carry and what should she look for ?

Hi there
I think your friend needs to refer to a vet to be on the safe side. I do not know the bitch and as she is so young it would be advisable to get her advice from a proffessional

I breed Springers and the youngest I have ever bred a bitch is 2 years old. Most breeders will tell you that the perfect time is around 3 years of age. It depends on the dog, health problems, parent history...ect. Buying a dog that comes from a responsible breeder is very important!
