    Default yikes...still not in heat???

    well she is 17 months old and no signs of heat yet....i dont imagine it would have slipped by...i really want to breed her as she will be a very special one and have the opportunity to potentially breed her with a phenomenal sire...

    is there any good news that can come from this....thanks

    It can keep you from breeding her too young.

    not to worry. She could be two or older before she comes into heat. Day length affects heat cycles too so she may come into heat in the spring when the days are longer.

    I have had most of my dogs come into heat at a year, some at six months, but some at two years old.

    Lone female?

    Ours always seem to go together or in succession. If there's no other females to put the hormones in the air, it's not surprising for her to be that late. I wouldn't worry at all, yet.

    Relax, Youve got 7 months until she can have all of her health clearances done.
    What makes you say she will be a very special one?
