    just wondering what u all think is to old to breed a female beagle.
    i have a 9 year old she is in good shape not fat at all good running shape and healthy as heck no issues with her since i bought her 6 years ago.
    she has the blood i like and am getting a male that has the other blood i want for a cross just wondering if i should or shouldnt breed her

    My opinion is if she's doing well with no issues then your fine......Age is always a concern but health is what counts.....Good luck.....

    The first litter part is what gets me thinking, one thing i would do before breading her is run her or exercise her quite a bit before breeding. I would not hesitate to breeding her with your stated health and over all of the dog. But with her age comes fatigue this making labor much more difficult, with her being in good running shape will defiantly help 10X. Plus if you don’t breed her than you will always be wondering what if. Other than some exercise I would get a shot of oxytocin spelling? This helps the dog’s contractions.

    I think your dog is ready for breeding already. She can still have pups with but as long as there are no complications or disease present.
