My young collie girl appears to be coming into heat, and I was hoping some knowledgable folk might be able to tell me what signs to look for, in case I’m being paranoid! I have searched the forums but not found much, and talked to my vet, googled, etc. She is around 5 months old, though as a rescue her birth date might not be spot on. Just before she turned 5 months, I noticed a little brownish red stain on her belly. I’ve kept an eye on it, and am reasonably certain it’s discharge from her vulva. We thought she was far too young, and my reading on line makes me think it should be more obvious. Apart from my neutered males slightly higher interest in trying to hump her, I haven’t seen any other signs, but I’m terrified of risking her out walking with other dogs if there’s a chance. I don’t intend her having puppies at any age, never mind getting knocked up at 5 months old! As she is my first bitch pup as an adult myself, I’m a little nervous and want to make sure we get it right
