18 months is in the safe area, but it depends on the dog. Is her body mature enough to carry a litter? My American Bassets aren't fully grown until around 2.5 years. You have to look at her and think to yourself "if she was pregnant with 10 puppies or more, could she carry them without harming herself?" When I say "harm," I mean putting straing on her back, legs, etc. from carrying such a large load.
