i didnt have a choice on getting my boy fixed, being a shelter dog and all. but i agree with Ames in the fact that at least hes not chasing bitches and marking everywhere. not to mention if the shelter didnt make u get them fixed then some dumb
would prolly adopt them and breed them saying "hes got such a great temperament and he looks badass."
so really most of the time it comes down to owners choice. its just some owners are stupidly irresponsible.
Its no small sample. I have spoke with many, many people about if they will "fix" their puppy. I am slightly full of myself. Thank God. You must be able to stick up for yourself this day and age. The APBT
is the only breed who the same people who are trying to "save it" are also pro spay laws. Its a slippery slope.
I stay out of other peoples decision (with so many people passing laws on their neighbors, its good to stay out of making decisions for other people as much as possible). The males do not develop all the way if they have been fixed before they are full grown. Some laws require a dog to be fixed by 6 months of age. Six months is no good!
If containing your male is why you fix him,..... Why would you own an APBT
I live in ranch country and have spoke with someone who made the mistake of fixing his cattle dog. No balls = less drive. He now has a retired "cattle dog".
On the flip side, if a fixed female pure bred APBT
sees an intact female she does not know, keep your eyes open! (they can become mean to intact dogs after being fixed).
