Default need advice on neutering or not neutering

My fiance does NOT want to neuter a male dog. People have told him that they rarely get cancer. I spoke to out vet who told me the opposite. Does anyone out there have any info/advice they can give me. Thanks.

It's a rare occurence when it's not in the dog's best interest to neuter.

On the cancer issue: this disease seems to be escalating at an alarming rate in pets. I can't help but think that a lot of it has to do with what's being manufactured as pet food now.

Guys! Some of them just can't wrap their brains around the idea that it's not a bad thing to neuter a male dog, but spaying a female doesn't even create a blip on their radar. . .

You need to neuter the dog. There is no reason why he shouldn't be. I do believe cancer comes from dog foods. I think you will have more problems with behaviors if you don't neuter the dog.

Men they think that neutering is taking away the dogs man hood or somthing so dumb!! but in all reality it is safer for your dog
1) he won't wander when a female comes into heat
2) less tendincy for aggresion
3) no marking in the house
4) Easier to train
5) It is proven that dogs who are neutered have an 85% less chance of getting prostate cancer (which is leading killer in unaltered male dogs with cancer)

I agree totally with you. Trust me, at first I was a little weary. I had a male dog for 15 years who wasn't neutered and now I have a 7 month old who is. I can clearly see a BIG advantage to having them neutered. So mush easier to train and no aggresion at all. I have male friends that it is wrong to have them neutered, but men must stick together. : )

I think you need to keep Colin - and he doesn't have to be "fixed!"
