a girl that small shouldnt be bred really no matter how tiny the male you cant determine if she's only gonna have one big pup. Is she of the correct standard and papered, has she been vet checked?

:wave: Hello, I was advised by my vet not to breed Triiny as she is too small and she weighs 3lb, it could kill her, even the lady who I bought her off wasn't going to sell her incase someone breed her. I had to promise that I wouldn't. Please don't it isn't fare to her. :cry:
Hope this helps.

I got Trinny when she was 6months old and took her to be weighed the vets said that she probably won't grow just fill out and she was right Trinny will be 1yr old next month and just looks alittle fatter.

your baby is probably gonna stay under 4lbs, welcome to the group.
the reason we say tall not to breed is because a little girl that small can very easily die during the birthing process and noone wants to risk that, an ABSOLUTE minimum safe weight for breeding would be 4lbs and thats risky! and the male should always be at least 1/2 a lb smaller than the female for safteys sake.
