    I have a 15 month old American Pit Bull Terrier that hasn’t had a heat cycle yet. I haven’t taken her to the vet about this issue yet because I thought maybe I was jumping the gun a little bit but I’m becoming concerned that she may be infertile or something. What are my options?

    Some dogs don’t have their first cycle until they are 2. I am sure your dog is perfectly healthy, but if you are concerned, take her in. It will give you peace of mind, or maybe you will find something wrong. But at least you will know. Dogs “cycle” at different ages, just like people.

    Did any of them die from there Pit Bull?????
    I am so sorry for the ignorant, uneducated comment from the previous post “This is a blessing” I happen to breed this wonder breed of dogs! She most likely had a silent heat, usually after they are 2, there heat is regular.
    For “This is a blessing”
    Here is a blessing for you,

    never mind.
    There are several explanations: the cycle has been silent, has a delay in the cycle ……. waiting ……

      Good, please don’t breed her! Pitbulls were bred to kill. We don’t need any more. Now you can spay her and know that you’ve done something good for the dog world.

        Just because you might be afraid, doesn’t mean the whole world need eliminate an entire breed. So consider doing a little research before you throw something out there that isn’t necessarily true. Absolutes are not a good idea no matter what you are discussing.

        Now, if you know this particular woman to be breeding her dogs to kill or fight, then power to ya! If not, lay off. She could be trying to better the breed.

        Good luck to you all!
