Well we are in a perfect budget enough to have a new puppy.
Plus it's too late now, and I will never give her up at this point ever.
She came from a broken home and won't ever take her back there or any pound. I'm getting the shots definitely and i will space it because i do believe getting combo shots is too much for my pup.

New to the world of dogs, so that is why I asked about the shots.

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.

The space of time between the shots is perfect just the way the vet spaces them. You don't need to put any more in between them, it definitely wouldn't be recommended, and the longer you don't get them, the longer your puppy will be a prisoner in you home. You can't take it on walks off your property, can't take it to socialize, because it could get a disease from other dogs, even if there are no dogs currently present wherever you're at.


Breeding is a bad idea. It can bring on a host of problems, complications, and diseases in the mother dog. What if you can't find homes for all the puppies? Could you afford to get the same shots you're considering not getting for your puppy for 8-12 more dogs? You sound like you love her in your posts; So don't you want her to have a long, happy life? Breeding is a bad, bad idea.

Lepto

Hi, I would NOT get lepto vaccine.My Maltese just got his vaccinations and received the kennel cough vaccine 7 days later he came down with kennel cough. Now understand he was no where near any dogs and he doesn't go out he uses wee wee pads and plays in our condo hall and safe balcony. He gave the kennel cough to my mi-ki 8 days later. I questioned the vet and was told it's possible so both are on amoxil to protect them against bacterial infection while they go through their illness .HOWEVER if you are going to be out and about exposing your pup then by all means he needs all his shots,but I still don't give lepto unless he will be running in the woods. To many varieties of it and that shot covers only a few if that and they can get a reaction to it. Most vets have it all in one I insisted NO lepto.

So you want to be a breeder?

Please read the link. It covers it best.

Parvo is expensive to treat and if they are exposed to it without vacines its almost a guarantee they'll get it. Parvo costs roughly $400- $2000 to treat and will destoy you emotionally even if they survive it. (been there) Not worth the potential savings imo

You brought up a really valid point and I will consider.
I really don't want my baby to have complications.
