There are a lot of programs available, especially bully breeds, to help with the cost of spaying and neutering. They depend on your location.Pittychick any recommendations on getting her spayed? How old and what's the recovery like
I've been here long enough to see that coming!Well that escalated quickly ahahahah.
Any GOOD vet will tell you, as well as a simple google search, that you should NEVER spay a bitch before her first heat. By doing so, it increases the risk of cancer developing in the dog. Also, male's testosterone is present (though he may not know what to do with it) at 7 months. A male can be neutered at this time safely and without much issue. Of course, for both sexes, it is always best to wait until they are at least 1yr old, or 18mos for giant breeds. In a similar fashion, consider them like children. 7-8mos is adolecent age. You wouldnt get a vasectomy or hysterectomy on your child as a teenager. Your child would wait until they were done growing and grown. The same should apply to (at least) dogs, as their health and complications are similar to our own.There are a lot of programs available, especially bully breeds, to help with the cost of spaying and neutering.

I generally like to spay at 8 months. This is usually before their first heat and gives them time for them to physically mature. Males I wait longer unless they're being adopted. My last male was neutered at 15 months.
Recovery is usually 7-10 days, with crate rest the first day for females.
I'm glad that you are considering this as an option. There are many positives for pet dogs to be altered.
I have a male I just rescued the same color. I say a Red Fawn. I’m amazed that some would call it a Blue Champagne or Blue Fawn when clearly the colors are reddish including the nose.It might be the pictures, but she doesn't look 'blue'. Her nose color indicates a dilute gene at work, but it appears to be a red dilute, not a blue dilute gene. Not a biggie, just dilute genes working on different Loci. I would just call her a Fawn.
I think you got it - dilute liver.Dilute genetics tend to get confusing, especially since almost everything 'dilute' is now referred to as 'blue'. Red and Liver dogs can be dilute too (though they aren't 'blue') they, technically, are Isabella, but no one says THAT, lol
