Hello i am new to the forums
i have a 6.5 month old english bulldog named chubbz
i have an appointment next week for his neutering but i am just wondering wether or not i should actually go through with this
he dosent have a bad tempermant, he has been trained to go to the bathoom outside since day one and has made a mistake once or twice, he dosent have any humping issues at all, dosent bite, so im just wondering whats the point in neutering him?
i have asked a couple vets and some said do it some said dont. i have asked for opinions on forums and have gotten mixed answers so i am here now as i can tell this is a reputable place
please help me out with pros and cons to this procedure and judging by what i have told you if it seems like theres any point to it
i do not plan on using him for stud service or breeding and he dosent roam free he walks off leash with me and is really obediant
Neutering him you will avoid possible testicular cancer.

I personally neuter..My daughter has a chihuahua that is two and he hikes his leg everywhere...He is not neutered. Im getting in two male frenchies and they both will be neutered. I dont want to take a chance on cancer down the road or other issues.
Personally I would wait until he's a little bit older to neuter him. Some vets prefer to spay/neuter before the sexual hormones start flowing (6 mths or older), but I think they need a chance to grow more mentally as well as physically before having the procedure done. If you don't have any behavioral concerns, I would try and wait until he is a year old before neutering. Just my opinion.
It really is a personal decision, but due to several potential health issues it is best to get it done no later than 1 year of age, but no sooner than 6 months of age. I had both my bullies done at 7 months
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
I would be worried that what if he started acting badly...
I took in a owner surrender of a 12 month old male that shoulda been done a long time ago...
Better safe then sorry I always say..

I would neuter. Better to avoid any possible health complications that come with staying intact and avoid any "accidents" if he would happen to be around an intact female. Plus...Bob Barker says so!
@barchy , Neuter him. You will be doing him a favor by going ahead with the surgery. He will be a happier dog.
From what I understand .. if you leave it a little closer to a year old it gives them chance to get that "bulky" look that english bulldogs and old english bulldogs can get. However, the longer you leave it after a year the greater the chance of cancer.
He's 6 1/2 so you could happily neuter him now ... if you want to leave it a couple more months then that is obviously fine too. BUT I would certainly get him neutered at some point ... why put him at the risk of testicular cancer unless you specifically want to use him as a stud??
this is why i like this forum,if anyone asked this question on a uk bully forum the poster would be told no no no !!,people over here seem to think that bulldogs shouldnt be done till at least 2 yrs old,but i totally agree with early neutering and i dont think for 1 minute that it stops them filling out ,genetics,quality feed,tlc ,and keeping clean are what makes the bulldog look as good as it can and not keeping it intact,karen
