8 would make me nervous, but then I'm not experienced in the breeding side of things (yet). But they know the dam better than you can put in a pedigree and perhaps she's had healthy, viable, nice sized litters up to this point. My personal nervousness would be for the dam, and not so much the puppies but that is their call and not mine. But the longevity on mom's side appears to be decent so that may play into the reasoning for the late breeding.

Dad looks very pretty, but is only 3 yrs old, so its hard to say at this point what he's producing, but from the ones that have pictures uploaded, it looks like he throws nice looking dogs.

Good luck and congrats, BJ - Under Construction

Looks good to me!

In some breeds, that age is normal. Many Salukis are never bred UNTIL the age of six, and have a 2nd litter at 7 or 8, for example. I think it's a sign of a fit, healthy bitch if she is in good enough shape to breed at her age.

Good luck!

I'd certainly be looking at other issues in a pedigree besides the age of a dog or bitch, as long as they are not underage, such as longevity, cancers, hip and elbow dysplasia, megaesophogus, etc.
