At What Age Do Chihuahuas Start to Get on Heat?

Is because I have five chihuahuas two males and three females the little ones are 6 months old, but I dont want the little male to get pregnant my female chihuahuas. The other male has been taken care, I havent take the little one because I think he is to small.

6-9 months depending on the dog.

Mine is 8 1/2 months and having her first heat.

I understand the worry about the size and the procedure, if he's over 5 lbs, I'd go ahead and have him fixed. If he's under 5 lbs, I'd talk to my vet about the risks associated as well as his experiences with such a tiny dog and go from there.

    The Chi needs to be fixed one way or another- vets can work with small. It is easier to spay a small Chi than it is to care for a litter of pups.

    They become sexually mature at around 6 months of age. Make sure they are kept separated if you don't want any accidents to happen.
    Hope this helps.
    Good luck
