it's a myth that you have to breed a dog for "motherhood reasons"..

She doesn't looke like a purebred gsd nor a purebred terv either. Maybe a mix of both?

Right now, at this age, she is WAY to young to even think about 'breeding' her. I highly suggest you read thru some of the posts on this board about breeding and breeding nightmares..

Some dogs can actually die giving birth, some do it on their own, others need help, you won't know until it actually happens..Are you willing to risk losing your dog during whelping if you bred her?

Again, I suggest you read some of the breeding topics on this board, and read some of the heartbreaking stories of breedings gone wrong.

She's very cute by the way, but again looks like a mix to me

I don't think she is a German Shepherd or a Tervuren. I think she is a mixed breed dog. Please don't breed her.

That idea that "if I have the mother I don't have to do a thing" is a lie. Go read some of Selzer's posts about having to help her dogs deliver the puppies, having puppies die, having mother dogs nearly die, spending thousands of dollars at the vet trying to save their lives when they have problems with birthing. Or she could just kill and eat them the way my mother in law's dog did with her puppies.

Maybe there is a problem with translation here, but "motherhood reasons?" What does that mean, exactly?

I'm curious about this too what do you mean Motherhood reasons? I'm not familiar with that term.

She looks like a mixed breed so really what would be the point in breeding her?

This person lives in Jordan/Middle east, remember, so please keep that in mind when responding. The US has a huge pet overpopulation problem, maybe Jordan does not.
That said, she is a mixed breed and unless you know 6-8 people who want puppies, you shouldn't breed her.
Even if you do - please wait until she's older, 2yrs. of age is best. And even then, you can run into a lot of complications including the death of your beloved pet.
If you have veterinarians (animal doctors) who spay/de-sex/neuter there, you would be doing her a huge favor by just spaying her now.

Umm okay?!?! Sorry to be blunt but, just from reading that it sounds like you have no business breeding because you obviously don't know anything about it. Do the dog a favor and spay her.

In the middle east breeding is the norm. most PB dogs end up in homes, no one throws away their pb dog. the problem is with mixed breeds. Like for example someone like our friend here from Jordan, since we told him she is mixed, he would either look for someone to buy her or maybe throw her on the street. Not saying he would, but a typical middle eastern mind would. it's a shame.
People all over the middle east are trying to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering. problem is most Muslims think its a sin to change God's creation. We have to keep reminding them that Gods also ordered to be merciful to animals and if an animal has a high probability to end up on the street that's not merciful at all. Some listen some don't, at least in Egypt it's getting much much better. most people would neuter their mixed cats and dogs but not their pb, because there is a market for PBs and rarely do you get a purebred dog at the shelter. The only times we do is when ppl can't afford vet bills due to accidents or unfortunately, Europeans moving back to their countries and abandoning their dogs.
