I don't think so. But make sure she is worth breeding first. I'm not gonna lecture you, but don't have a litter just cause she's purdy!!!!!!!!

Good conformation doesn't make her worth breeding. What health tests have you done? Any titles in conformation or working?

No offense meant at all, but if you have to ask if she (a dog we dont' know) is too old, you should not be breeding. A LOT more goes into it than having a dog physically able to breed, to be a responsible breeder.
 
lol poisoned so a responsible breeder dont ask question , and also good confromation have a lot to do with bredding that how you prevent future healthy problems . I did took her to the vet she 100% healthy

Have you health tested her? Like through OFA or PennHip, not just a general exam at a vet?

not the vet. That is not good enough. We're talking OFA or PennHip for joints, cardiac testing and more....

I'd love to know her scores as well, pretty unusual for a Bully breeder to do PennHip! Sucks PennHip doesn't have an online database like OFA.

If be concerned with how the bitch will be with the puppies taking care of them and all that because she is 5,how old was she when u did her one and only breeding? But no 5 isn't to old in my opinion,I like the fact that u haven't bred here to death like most people lol

haters? who here is a hater? I love me a well put together ambully, but there are so many bad breeders out there that I, at least, have been forced to turn a critical eye on these dogs and those that breed them. Not to mention, it is proper for a customer to ask prospective breeders these types of questions.

Nobody is hating on the breed. If I was, I wouldn't care who was pumping them out. I love American Bullies. how is it hating on the breed, to be concerned by who is breeding them?

And no, a good, responsible and educated breeder would not have to ask if five is too old to breed. For some bitches, it would be - and those bitches shouldn't be bred anyway if they're deteriorating that much by five years old. And there IS more that goes into health testing than good hips and a vet checkup if you want to make sure you're not passing something on to someone's pets.
But also the fact that a couple of weeks ago, you were asking us what kind of dog you had, while you had paperwork in hand. And you asked what Overdone meant - it's a word used by most breeds. Whether it's an overdone head, or body, or other. And you also posted the dog in your avatar so we could tell you what's wrong with him, so you'd know if there's anything wrong HEALTH wise, and we told you then - you cannot judge a dogs' health based on conformation. This is the concept that is destroying dogs - people are breeding for looks and dog breeds are suffering for it.

Good conformation can deter from certain problems, but that's like saying a dog with good shoulders VS a dog who's shoulders are forced outward to give them that froggy look a lot of crap breeders seem to like is going to MOST LIKELY have better shoulder health and life. Good conformation has a lot to do with winning trophies. Good conformation + Proven good health + proven true to breed (VIA working in ways that show that dogs' heart and mind is true to her breed) and then matching with a dog who is similar, or better, is when you should consider breeding.


I'm not attacking you, nobody is hating on you, and yep - I do want an American Bully one day from either a spectacular breeder, or a shelter. OR maybe I'll just steal Torque from Pink (a member here). But me wanting an American Bully is exactly why I am asking you these questions, these are very basic things for a good breeder to do, and know.

Knowing how to take educational criticism and advice is what MAKES a good handler, and breeder. But you learn these things BEFORE you make dogs.

And what makes your dog so special that she should be bred?

That's the luxury of seeing someone post multiple threads. Gives a good round about idea of what you are dealing with.



I'm not hating. I have one. A damn good one too


Good luck

Wow for someone who thinks so highly of themselves and their dog I find it pretty funny that you didn't even know if your dog was apbt or am bully.
Why don't you educate yourself and get your bitch fixed instead of ruining the breed and breeding more un wanted dogs.

I know an extremely reputable breeder, won't even name the breed they're in that bred a 9 year old bitch. She had a total of 4 litters in life, don't know the spacing of them. Bitch had 6 pups, all healthy, all either doing IPO, Mondio or FR. A few people scoffed and were disgusted, others know how reputable this breeder is and just came to the decision that they must know what they're doing...

Guess it comes down to the individual bitch. I'm not a breeder so don't know the specifics of what you should be on the look out for, but I do personally know close to a dozen bitches 5 or older that have been bred without complication.

In regards to breeding period, I agree with others. If you are educated, responsible and have done all the health tests, (not just a vet's "clean bill of health"), are prepared to thoroughly screen puppy buyers etc, that's great, if not, expect to get pinned to the wall of flame here!
