Love frenchies!!!
the vet at the clinic I work at actually recommends waiting two months after the dog starts bleeding before spaying. she said it's a lot safer at that point and will cut down the amount of bleeding during surgery. you can of course do it before then, but certain risks are higher. I know they actually charge more for the surgery if your dog is still in heat

frenchies are adorable, my friend has 2 and I just love them
