Work them Pet Bulls!
I am getting Bella spayed in March of 2012 and she will be 19 months old by the time she goes in. I was going to show her but she has some issues so I will pursue that with my next dog I get. My question is, once spayed (based on an older adult female, not a puppy) will she lose muscle tone? She is in excellent shape with a nice tuck and I still plan on working her the same way we always have after she's spayed. I've always owned male GSD's and some were intact there whole lives while my last two boys I owned were neutered. I know some people have that mindset where a fixed dog gets fat but in reality it is all in there diet and excercise. This is just something that I have been thinking about seeing as how she is my first bulldog and female, and she is getting spayed later in life as oppossed to her being a pup. I figured I'd ask since I don't recall this question ever coming up. I know a few people on here have males that were neutered later in life and still look pretty shredded I'm assuming if the excercise stays the same and I watch her calorie intake she will remain the same after the surgery. I have had many fixed pets over the years and they were never fat but they didn't have buldging biceps as my bully girl ( you can't see a GSD's muscles because of all the fur ) so this is why I'm curious for info. Thanks
