That's just the tip of the iceburg.
I recognize that neos have a number of other issues in the breed, but I thought that was the simplest example for the OP.

Two is BARELY mature in the giant molosser breeds. So young . . .

And then if the pregnancy IS successful it can be complicated to keep the pups alive after whelping. The female can lay on them, or they can easily suffocate under her excess skin, for example.

If you're lucky she's having a false pregnancy.

PennHip is usually the preferred test for these types of dogs as well. But, oh . . . so many health issues in the breed now

Depends too on the vet, I know in some cases where they will spay later. At the high volume clinics I've helped at unless the pups are due right away, they spay. Sad, but when they're doing 200 surgeries in a weekend and taking 75-80 dogs into rescue....
