    Yes - that is the age at which a first heat often occurs and you should be concerned in that you will need to take preventative measures to ensure she is not bred as even if your intent is to use this dog for breeding the first heat is not a good time to breed due to the early age most dogs have that first heat and

    I would definitely be concerned and would take extra precaution to prevent unwanted pregnancies, especially since it is the first heat cycle. Keep her indoors and away from any known intact males. Also remember that a fence is not good enough to prevent mating. Many males will jump the fence or mate right through chain link.

    After she is finished with her heat cycle, you can have her spayed. Many shelters offer free or low cost spay and neuter. Definitely worth it to eliminate the headache and mess of a dog in heat!

    Ok,so she has to stay in a pen right now,and when she is in the house,she is alone in her dark room.Often I let her out and play.I have 4 dogs
    and 1 that is not fix.He hasn't made his move,but soon when they intergrate better i;
    m sure he will.
    I think she is l already in heat.
    Why?well for the past days I let her out of Gunner,a fixed dog.BUT ,I remember seeing Taz and my other dog trying to mate a female(Neither fixed).She was rolling around and everything.This is exactly how
    sugar acts around any males.I will breed her,but not with Taz and not now!Very concern even when I let her out my scent (and hers) carry around the neighbor hood and a few dogs raise heck.There is the sheriffs dog,(my neighbor)then my friends dog right around the corner from us,has a male,and up the street,not even a mile,well their neighbors is another male dog.
    (BTW our dog has mated with dogs up the street,accept the male,DUR.)
