Fuzzy dogs - FTW



Growing up, our dogs were neutered around 6 months. Why? Because my mom works for a vet clinic and is absolutely convinced if they aren't neutered young they will die of prostate cancer

he needs more fur. You totally can't tell Hudson has his (thank goodness!), until this happens -

Since I didn't answer for Didgie or Traveler:

Traveler: Intact and will be unless a health concern gives me reasons to alter.

Didgie: Intact and will be for the next few years. If I decide to alter it will more than likely be a OSS instead of a traditional spay.

And I still maintain that nothing being down there on boy dogs is creepier/grosser to me than dog balls. Just looks wrong.

If Merlin wasn't as fuzzy as he is he would've been neutered a hell of a lot sooner lol or I really would've wanted to!

Breeder requirement. I was going to wait until at least a year, but the vet had fears of cryptorchid and other stuff that I now believe was a bit of crap, but oh well. So he was neutered around 7 months instead.

Piper - Spayed at around 6 months because I didn't want to deal with a heat cycle. However, I wished I had waited a little longer since she does have some incontinence issues now.

Sako - Neutered at 2 1/2yrs. He was having some major anxiety issues (weird ones, like being afraid to eat) and breeder & I decided then that we more than likely would never want to breed him. So, neuter time. His behavior has changed dramatically in a positive way since neutering. I now think he might've had some kind of imbalance going on.. who knows. He was super easy to manage as an intact dog as far as "boy" behaviors go though.

Barrett will remain intact for showing and possible breeding in the future (he's only 6 months old).

Peewee was neutered at a year due to us getting a female at the time.
Ivan is going in in the next month or so to get de-balled. Because I want no chances of him breeding his half sister. While I know I can keep them separate, I.DO.NOT.TRUST.MY.FAMILY.MEMBERS. So off they will be coming.
Phoebe gets to remain in tact.

Bodhi had 2 heat cycles then I spayed. Because periods suck, she's a never to be bred mixed breed, why risk it.

Fred..... Omg, you have seen Fred's balls right?!?!!!! He has the ugliest pink balls in the whole world. They're long and huge and dangly. He's not snipped as he's being shown. But trust me when I say he will be eventually!!!! I imagine. We don't have boy dog problems. He's clean, he doesn't hump etc. He can get a bit unsettled by other male dogs, but it's not consistent at all, and depends on their introduction. More anxious than aggressive.
