To spay or not?

Does anyone have any idea when B's usually go into heat? I have always only had males and my other female was spayed before heat cycle started. I am currently debating if I want to spay Abby or not. Then I also thought about having one litter then spaying. Any thoughts from anyone would be great.

Spaying a maiden bitch is a much less complicated procedure than spaying bitch who has had puppies. Basenjis can come into heat as early as 6 months old though mine have always come in for the first time at 10 months.

As for being interested in breeding please read the thread in the Breeder Talk titled "Interested In Breeding". There are many things to consider before breeding a dog.
