my vet wouldn't neuter my male until 7 months. He has never marked anything..indoors or out. He is now almost 1 1/2 yrs. old...still squats to potty. My mom always had that old wive's tale about females being 'gentler'. I have male is a much more docile personality. My female (who is spayed) can be very moody. That may depend on breeding....I tend to think she is a typical 'girl'. lol (I will never admit that to my hubby, tho!)

Bronki was intact..never made babies, never hiked in an inappropriate place, had no aggression, in fact even when provoked he would shoot me a look like "mom can you do something about this idiot..he is really making me angry" he knew that he was not to respond...but was socialized and trained from the get go..he did get cancer..not testicle, but still i think that should be the main concern..if you are not going to keep your dog away from females..the neutering is a must..but i have known a zillion dogs of different breeds that were all trained well..and had there testicles as well..known a few that died of cancer that started there as well.

AmStaffer...I am so suprised that your vet told you that! I worked in a vet clinic for 5 years and we saw multiple problems with "intact" males. What topped the list were intact males coming in all the time with testicular cancer and needing a neuter immediatley after diagnosis. The more years that pass the higher the risk. Here is a link that you can read up on. Take care start reading under LESS TESTOSTERONE, LESS TROUBLE
