My Chihuahua is almost eight months old and has not had her first heat yet. Is this normal? When did your pup have hers?

Zoey was starting to come into heat when she was spayed at about 7 & 1/2 months. Every dog is different some don't have their first cycle until they are about a year old.

I just spoke with a friend who said hers was almost a year. She is 5 pounds. So maybe just have to wait for it.

Maisie was a couple of days off 8 months old, and 5.2lb when she had her first heat cycle

Small breeds can come into heat as early as 5 months, and as late as 1 year. But their weight won't be an indicator on what end of the scale they start.

Maya went into heat at 14 months. I had her spayed shortly after. She had leg surgery at the time I would have normally spayed her and then since she was so skinny and recovering from that, I just didn't get her spayed. So, I don't know why, but I was shocked when she went into heat. Of course, it was right after my leg surgery that had me in a full body brace. Ugh. Peach got spayed last week so Maya was my only dog that I could tell you when they went into season.
