When do females first come into heat

Just curious, but when do Rotties usually come into heat for the first time.

Usually around 10 months of age or so. Varies.

Re: When do females first come into heat

Blaze came into heat for the first time at 6 months, to the DAY. And has 4 month cycles. Hopefully this will change after her first litter, if she DOES have a litter.

Re: When do females first come into heat

Winnie came into heat at almost a year, just a few days shy of her 1st birthday. Like JudiW said, it varies. It's different for every dog.

Re: When do females first come into heat

Athena went into heat at around 9 months. Afterwards, she was immediately spayed. I was in school & time just flew by! between job, school & a puppy, she became an adult dog so fast!

Re: When do females first come into heat

I believe 6-10 months is fairly common, but 12 months wouldn't be cause for alarm, I wouldn't think. I know of one pup who had her first heat (smaller breed) at 4.5 months.

When I read this last sentence, it reminded me of the human mother who is amazed how fast time goes by because yesterday their little girl was a little baby and today she's a woman because she just had her first period

Anyways, when we adopted Bella three years ago she was in heat and the shelter was guessing she was 6 to 8 months old. When our vet met her, he thought she was closer to 9 months old. I was hoping the age range was smaller so that we would have had a more precise idea of her age, but oh well.

My female rottweiler was 14 months old when she had her first heat and then went into heat once every seven months after that one.

My first rottie bitch Delilah had 4 month cycles and it drove me CRAZY! I am so thankful that Akasha's are every 6 months. Her first one was around 11 months. It lasted 30 days and then to top it off she had a false pregnancy Thankfully her cycles have been normal since then, or I would have said to heck with showing her and would have just gotten her spayed.

Re: When do females first come into heat

Not only are her cycles multiple, but this is the second time she's been mated, and I'm afraid it hasn't worked yet again!

I am sorry to hear that she didn't take again. How frustrating for you. Are you going to try again?

Re: When do females first come into heat

Luna came in just before she turned 10 months. She is in standing heat right now.
