As I mentioned in another thread I'm going to wait until Kira has had her first heat before she's spayed because she has a slightly recessed vulva but I'm wondering when will she go into heat?
She turned 8 months old on the feb 1st and no sign of anything yet.

Shouldn't she have had a cycle by now?

A girl chihuahua can go into heat anywhere from 6 months to a year. for there first, some are late bloomers. Dont worry it will come soon, enough and then you'll wish it away.

Bella's happened at about 7 months, whereas Libby was about 8 or 9. They had totally different heats too. Bella's seemed heavy and lasted a while, whereas Libby barely bled at all and it lasted a very short amount of time.. Not for sure what is exactly normal??

Thanks everyone for your replies

She seems to have grown so quick and got her teeth in all at once so I guess I expected she's be quick to get her first heat. I guess I thought 6-7 months was 'just' when was going to happen, suprise to me lol.

LOL, I know I always wished mine away ;)

I've heard as late as 14 months...you may have a wait ahead of you yet, but my guess is it will be soon
The old familiar hurry up and wait game, I hope it's sooner rather than later.

I hope it's a quick one, I wish she could avoid it all together.

I had wondered about this too. My little baby Tallie just turned 7 months today. She has not had a heat yet
We wait together lol
