5 months is way too young to be pregnant. She is only a pup herself. Margot is right, you must get your dog to a vet immediately.

If she is ready to deliver the puppies she needs to be at the vet.  NOW.

If she is pregnant but there is still time before she has the puppies, make an appointment with the vet to have her spayed so she doesn't have to have the puppies.  It is very dangerous for her to have puppies at this young age.  Do NOT let her go through this by herself, and if she is less than 2/3 of the way through her pregnancy (gestation for a dog is 9 weeks, so if she is less than 6 weeks along), terminate the pregnancy and have her spayed immediately so she doesn't have to go through with it.
