Heat cycle

That's too bad. You admitted too young. You can get her spayed now, stop the pregnancy.

Is there something wrong with you!! Get rid of her puppies how cruel are you! I don't know where some of your people come from my dogs 3 years old and I thinks it's only natural to have at least one litter like every female!!!

Stop the pregnancy are you kidding me!!. I'm absolutely disgusted in what you have just said how cruel! Get off my comments you vile person!!

Which is more cruel? Breeding a dog you admit is too young, or stopping the pregnancy? As for your name calling... tut tut. As for disgusted... that fits backyard breeding, and breeding dogs too young. Funny you now claim 3 yrs old. So even if not too young, no health testing. And no, it isn't "natural" to have a litter just because it's a female. Only the best, health tested, generations of health testing preferably, quality and proven dogs should be bred. The rest deserve to be loved, not used as puppy manufacturing machines. Purposefully creating pets is irresponsible.

But I will help you with one thing... this is a public board. If you post, people can reply. I noted you deleted all your previous posts because you didn't like the answers or were hoping people would forget what you posted, perhaps. It will help you in the future to remember that if you don't want responses, you may want to not post on public boards.

Thanks for the advice. I have done all the reading into breeding for the last two years. I am aware of these things and she is a registered bulldog with good champions in her blood line. I was unsure to her cycle as it should be a lot heavier by now ... I was thinking maybe her body isn't mature enough yet so there for I won't be breeding her until then.

I really am curious why you are even posting here about a bulldog. You do realize this is a Basenji board, right?

She is 3 years old I paid for her to have health checks and tests before I bread her as she has superb bloodlines!. All pups have Gomes to go to and if written up an agreement with each and every new owner of one my pups my girl is well looked after and so will her pups! And killing these pups I's a def no don't you dare tell me what to do with my dog

So what? Has she herself shown or done anything of note? Bloodlines are irrelevant if the bitch herself is unproven. There are lots of so-so animals out there with a good pedigree.

As far as people "telling you what to do with your dog", when you posted on this board you invited comments and should have expected they wouldn't necessarily be positive or what you wanted to hear. And yes, why post on a Basenji breed forum when you have a bulldog? Maybe try this on for size. (or did you end up here because the bulldog forums didn't tell you what you wanted to hear??)

Really? What is her registered name... cause I'm pretty willing to bet there are no health certifications. Bulldogs have MASSIVE health issues and require a lot of health tests. Here are the CHIC requirements.

Patellar Luxation
OFA evaluation, minimum age 1 year

Cardiac Evaluation
Congenital Cardiac Exam, exam by Boarded Cardiologist, using echo preferred, but not required. - OR
Advanced Cardiac Exam

Tracheal Hypoplasia
OFA radiographic evaluation for Tracheal Hypoplasia.

Eye Examination by a boarded ACVO Ophthalmologist- after the age of 24 months (Optional)
Results registered with OFA - OR
Results registered with CERF

THEN the optional ones, which responsible breeders do!

I learned about bulldogs from my friends Norma and Frank Hugo of Hugo Bulls. They have over 150 specialty wins since 1967. I have seen the trauma of heart disease, cleft palates, and idiots who don't know they require c-sections until their bitch starts to whelp and crush the rib cages of their puppies.. or die because they can't deliver them. Breeding basenjis is a breeze compared to bulldogs. You say you have read for years, but I would bet I learned more from hanging with Norma over 30 yrs ago than you have.

For the record, it is "bred" not "bread".
