    What's the real truth behind neutering, I don't want to but I keep hearing people saying he's gonna be humping everything if I don't. Some others say he stops producing testosterone and he gets less active and fat. Sent from Petguide.com Free App

    Ok so I had a question. My boy is 1.5 years old and is unaltered. I have no plans on breeding him but the decision to keep him intact was my husbands wish. My trainer has told me if I don't plan on breeding him I should get him fixed because he could have health issues later in life. But isn't...

    Hey so I recently rescued a pit puppy, he's 2 month old and I've been thinking about whether I should get him fixed or not. Would you guys please tell me what pros and cons are?

    Not specifically about pits but about dogs in general. They have the mandatory spay/neuter law for this area. As I do plan on getting my dogs spayed/neutered, I don`t want to do it before sexual maturation. Found an article about the positive and negative sides of spaying/neutering a dog in...
