He is a bit young, however "never say never". I would ask your vet if you are concerned. He is certainly old enough to be neutered (and the females are old enough to be spayed) to prevent this from happening.

I say he is old enough,
IF his testicles have decended, he can mate. The quality of his "little ones" well thats a different story I guess.
But he's old enough,
I think its time for some spay and neutering.

My dog Nikita's dad was only 4.5 months old when he fathered that litter. He is a Boxer, not a SB but still the concept is the same.

The range on when males can impregnate is variable but at 5 months it is certainly possible.
