    Default What age to nueter?

    Walter is 4 months old and just got back from the vet and they said he could be nuetered any time now. I was just wondering about any opinions for when to have this done.
    Thanks in advance for any advice

    I thought they liked to wait until they were at least 6 months old?

    Is he marking all over the place? If not I think I would wait until lat least 6 months.

    Our vet always recommends waiting until they are 18 months, so that's what I do. Some peeps do it at 6 months. Me personally I'd wait unless he is giving you issues. Bullies don't fully develop until 2 years of age.

    I don't know the right age but, We adopted Vegas when he was 4.5 months old and he was already neutered. It did not stunt his growth as some people think. He is a nice size bully (60 lbs at 3 yrs old) with a nice head.

    I have heard 6 months and 18 months. Watson was neutered at 8 months because he was starting to mark and he didn't back down to the big male dogs at the dog park. otherwise I would have waited a little longer until he fully matured. He may never fully developed as far as width of head and chest to his potential but I looked at him at 8 months and felt he looked wide enough. So off he went for a little snip snip.

    Tonka is 6 months, was in time out at daycare 3 times just TODAY for mounting, marks all sorts of things ( though he has only tried to lift his leg once and fell over lol), does not back down to anything, and is 44 lbs already so... He is off to be neutered this Friday!

    We wanted to wait until Linus got to about 50-55lb .... but then he started to get a bit too territorial and bouncing off the walls. It was driving the other dogs totally crazy, so we got him booked in and by coincidence he was about 50lb at the time.

    Did it stop him bouncing off the walls, acting like a lunatic and play attacking all the other dogs, making their lives misery ...erm ....NO ....

    Thank you all for the advise and input. I was a little surprised when the vet said that today, I had kind of figured 6 months at the earliest also. He hasnt started marking at all and is in general well behaved, other than what we call his "devil dog" hour each night when he is full of all kinds of energy.

    On a side note, Walter has met all kinds of other dogs of all sizes but the smaller/medium dogs (basset, ****-zu, yourkee) just bark at him and the large dogs( labs, poodles, rots) all play and have no problem. Wtf?

    I've been researching this issue a lot and quite a few brave Vets are now
    reccm'ding doing this upon the breed's maturity (which varies), I believe
    for English Bulldogs it's 2 yrs old. IF you can, that would be best so bone
    development would be optimal. Of course, being territorial and marking
    are difficult to deal with too but I'd wait as long as possible. It's appalling
    the extremely young ages that are being spayed/neutered...babies really!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
