How Big Does a Female Labrador Retriever Have to Be to Have Puppies?

Okay, I have this Labrador Retriever and my family and I would like to breed her, but were afraid she’s too small. The male we are breeding her with is a lot bigger than she is. We would ask the vet, but we can’t get an appointment for awhile and it will be too late by then. What would be a weight or length that is "too small" to breed her? Because she is very important to us, and we don’t want to lose her. Thanks:)

If you don’t want to lose her- then spay her. She can have complications if the puppies are too big and need an expensive c-section ($1,500+).

Only breed when:

1. The dogs are AKC registered.
2. The dogs are at least 2 yrs old and not older then 6 yrs old and been tested for all genetic problems in the breed.
3. The dogs have been shown in championship shows and have champion title, or a field title.
4. You have written permission to breed her from the breeder.

Since Labs are the #1 dog in the country and in the shelters, chances are your female should never be bred as she’s not top quality to start.

    If she’s so important to you, have her spayed and enjoy her as your pet. It doesn’t matter how much she weighs, all pregnancies have risk. There is no good reason to breed your dog. Go to the shelter and see all of the lab puppies needing homes because someone thought it would be fun to breed their pet.

    she doesn’t have to be big or little to have puppies. While you can do it the first time she goes in to heat its not best to do that. The best time to breed her is when she is 2 years old. Here’s why If you do it the very first time she goes in to heat she will be emotionally drain after she has the puppies and she won’t be a good mother to the puppies
