You need to take her to the vet. Father/daughter pairings can cause horrible deformities. I would suggest you get them both altered so that this can not happen again in the future.

LavenderRott is right. Take both of them and get them spayed and neutered right now.

At the very least, get your female spayed!

Ditto ditto.
It can be quite risky for a bitch to have puppies that young, especially with her father being the sire.
Also the chances of mammary cancer & pyometra are high in unspayed bitches, so it is MUCH better for her health to be spayed.

Please look at the dates on posts before bumping up years old posts, especially to give info about breeding. If you read the rules, this board is very pro spaying and neutering... there are too many homeless pets in the world as it is to be encouraging people without experience to breed.
