I don't have any issues with Ace humping and even if I did I don't think for me that would necessitate having one neutered. Neutering has been a mantra repeated over and over for the last 40 years and so now people take it for granted like its some right of passage. It all began because of many unnecessary and unwanted litters of puppies being born and as a means of prevention and to slow down the carnage of so many dogs being born who would wind up unwanted and euthanized. I haven't read or seen any evidence that castration is some kind of fail safe fix for behavior problems. So for me, because I know there won't be any unplanned or unwanted breeding I wouldn't have it done. The only exception would be if I had a dog that had serious aggressive problems and as a last ditch effort to solve it
    I didn't think to much of this and just did it until the Vets started doing babies!!!

    I started researching this issue and I had stray dogs come up that were older
    and not neutered but had no bad behavior so I didn't neuter them...no problems!

    Cami is 5/yo and I'm going to spay her to spare her going thru heat cycles. She
    came here 4 months ago unspayed and in heat so I've had to wait.

    Humping is not always a hormonal thing.

    If going to spay or neuter, I would wait until they have achieved full growth of
    skeletal & hormonal needs, about 18 months for bullies. Or some problem unable
    to solve and life is miserable. If it's just humping, try to solve that before you pay
    and go thru unnessacery surgery. Just my opinion...GOD bless & good luck!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Carol you are so wonderful for taking Cami into your home. She's such a lucky girl.

    Chumley has never been neutered. He will be 3 in November. I intended to do it but kept procrastinating. He has no aggression issues and doesn't hump anybody or anything. I guess I just don't want to risk anything going wrong because there's always that chance with any surgery or anesthesia. My wife would like us to do it but that's only because she doesn't like walking into the room and seeing this: -nuts-jpgIf I did it to him I could never look him in the eyes again!

    You can tell your wife that even afterward there is still a bean bag it just has no beans in it. And the lipstick doesn't go away either after they get neutered, it still comes out for your viewing pleasure on occasion. Here is a post-op shot

    can you see the pic I posted ? It just says [replacer] when I look at the thread. How old was Bacon when you neutered him?

    Can I ask everyone how long the recovery time is? Also our vet is 2 blocks away from home. Will Ulysses be okay to walk home? Anything else I need to do for him when he comes home?

    I have absolutely nothing to contribute except good luck. We had Sheldon fixed because the vet said he would be healthier but we also have a little female tea-cup yorkie that lives with us that belongs to my mother in law and she isn't spay and we didn't want Sheldon to hurt her when she came in heat, we live with my mother in law so we had to get Sheldon fixed if it weren't for that I don't know for sure but I don't think we would have had him fixed.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
