We haven't "snipped" Bass (yet). He'll be two in Oct. and never had temperament issues - until recently. We were considering breeding, but decided not to...he's my fifth child (and my only boy). We were told by our breeders to wait until 18 months if we were planning on fixing him, the vet recommended 6 months...so no help here, I'm just as curious.
I was also wondering this. Bentley is four. I'm guessing. He was three when we adopted him. It has been a fast year. I want to neuter him this fall asap. I was planning on scheduling it in September. Am I to late?
I really can't decide with Ruckus. Sorry, I kind of hijacked the original post!

In Europe, or at least in Finland it is not a custom to neuter without medical reason, or behavioral. And as we know, neutering doesn't always help with the behavioral issues or can even cause them. We don't have stray dogs and dogs are kept in leash so there is no over population cause of that. Responsible owners don't let their dogs run free and mate. There are studys made that early neutering can possibly cause health problems later on. You can talk to your vet about it, but he/she probably has an own opinion about it and you don't get objective information.
