I would highly recommend you get her fixed. I know it's your choice but I believe unless you are a licensed, reputable breeder of certified/cleared dogs, a regular person (with limited dog experience) like yourself has no business breeding puppies; you would then be classified as a BYB. It's not going to matter to your dog if she has puppies or not; in fact, you will be saving her from A LOT of diseases that are easily prevented with a spay. I know there's always that thought that it would be great to have (blanks) prodigy to carry on, but truthfully it just works out bad for the other 5-11 puppies in the litter that you don't keep and have to go to new homes (usually getting dumped at the local shelter). However, if you are financially prepared to take on your dog and 12 of her puppies, more power to you.
Eventually your 1 puppy is going to drive you nuts. Imagine all the threads on the puppy help forum pulled together into 6-12 puppies that you now have to inoculate, feed, get to the vets regularly for check ups, and begin to train for new responsible homes. Raising puppies is incredible hard and expensive.
I had a friend who thought it was a great idea to keep her runt puppy intact and breed him to an intact female she got just before him (female was 1.5 years, boy was maybe 1 year when breeding took place); She thought she'd get great puppies and make money doing so. She was wrong. Instead she wound up caring for 4 puppies (2 of which had birth defects) till they were 6 months old and she finally had to give them up to a rescue. I should also note that she had $4,000 in debt just to have vet care for the female, wean the puppies and get them vet care whenever they need it.
So please reconsider getting her fixed.
