Default Choice of Spay/Neuter.

I wasn't really sure what to call this thread, but it was inspired by the
Spay/Neuter ALL the time? thread.

I had posted that both Izzy and Frodo were s/n at 6 months and that it had never really crossed my mind not to do it. Then I got to thinking that I didn't really have a choice if I wanted to compete in AKC agility/Rally-O/obedience/whatever because their breeder wouldn't sign the registration papers until she had proof of s/n. With our rescue dog, she wasn't spayed at the shelter, we were given 60 days to show proof that she had been spayed, it was the policy for everyone.

I had thought that this was normal for "pet quality" and shelter/rescue dogs.

I am wondering (for the people who don't have their dogs s/n or are thinking about not having it done) where you got your dog(s) and how they are not getting s/n. <-- I have reworded this like 5 times, and I can't get it to sound like I am not being mean/accusing, but I promise that it's not supposed to seem like that, I am just curious.

I am also wondering (for breeders) if the spay/neuter contract is a normal thing, or am I being assumptuous again?

Ren and the gang.

P.S. This is a happy post <-- See, so no fighting

the easy answer would be that people are getting them from backyard breeders or from shelters who don't speuter before they leave or don't enforce speuter contracts (there are several around here with the 60 days policy, but their "deposit" that they hold is like a quarter of what it costs to spay a bitch, so what's the point?). no responsible breeder would let a dog go to a pet home without a spay/neuter contract.

my dogs were both adopted as adults and they were both speutered by the organization from whom i adopted them before they came home.

Elegy I love the term "speuter" LMAO

With Chloe it wasnt even a thought...She WAS getting spayed regardless...and even though I was sooo worried about her, I knew that it was for the best...

They don't fool around where I live, they come and get the dog back (I do not know this from personal experience, FYI, )

Thanks elegy!

i wish the shelters around here would do that. some have started speutering and microchipping everything that goes out the door, of which i heartily approve. but other places just flat-out don't have the resources. $45 and you're out the door with your new pet and that's the end of your relationship with the shelter.

That's how it's been with every dog that I've ever had, with the low cost s/n program it costs like $15 a dog here and then you can live worry free, lol.

Well, your lucky....We have a low-cost s/n program, but you have to be on government assistance (Food Stamps, Welfare, etc....) so I wasn't approved for it...so I had to pay $200 + for Chloe's s/n which doesnt really bother but........
thats a whole other thread....

the problem with many shelters (and i dont fault them for this), is that they are seriously lacking in funds, and they cannot logistically speuter everything before it leaves the shelter - because they dont have a vet to do them all, they dont have time, and for many shelters, not all the animals will be adopted and some may be euthanized, so they cant spend money on speutering dogs that will be euthanized 3-4 days later. its unfortunate, but they do their best.

many do offer rebates or have policies that state they SHOULD be speutered, but they are hard to enforce -again, for a shelter running short on volunteers, its hard to make sure this gets done, no matter how many good intentions they have.

Toby came from a breeder. While I did research the breed before I got him I didn't know all the things a good breeder should be doing. I don't believe his parents had any health tests done other than ordinary check ups. There was a contract I signed in which I stated I wouldn't breed him, but neutering was never mentioned in it.

I suppose she would be considered a BYB, but oh well, live and learn. I do intend on neutering him anyway tho.

All of my current dogs are spayed/neutered. Winston & Morgan are from rescues. We rescued Tia's mom and she was already pregnant, but we spayed both Tia and Jesse (her mom) when Tia turned 9 months old. Tango as from a friend's accidental litter and she was spayed at 7 months. My next dog (Toller) is going to be from a breeder on a breeding/showing contract if I do decide to show her in conformation (which I really hope to) and so she will not be spayed for obvious reasons. Showing is the only reason I'd never s/n my dog unless I couldn't for health reasons or something.
