You sound like a very responsible dog person.

If you can wait until she is one, that would be great. You will get benefit of her growth hormones. If you can wait until two, that is even better.

Just make sure, of course, she has no chance at getting pregnant before hand. Know that stray dogs and she can find ways to get at each other, even through a fence or a dog can get over the fence. Or, yours may find a way over the fence.
