The vet here has said it's good for bitches to have at least one litter... Is that true? I've found conflicting reports online, either written from a breeder perspective or from a too many unwanted puppies already perspective... But I really want to kow what's best for Chewie's health. I want to have her spayed, but I don't know if I should let her have a litter first? I want a playmate for her anyway, so keeping one of her pups would be a reality and she's so cute I doubt finding a good home for her others would be that difficult... That said, I am also well up for adopting from a shelter. What do you guys think? Any advice on what's best for her health? To breed or not to breed, that is the question!
