the right thing would be to hold up your end of the bargain with the shelter and neuter the dog. period. the end.
IMO, it would be completely irresponsible NOT to neuter this dog. First of all, it seems required by shelter. Second of all, there are *way* too many pits that don't have homes as it is, and this dog has just added more to the population. In our area there are *young* pit bull puppies being put down in shelters because nobody will take them. Something like 1 in 400 pits finds a good home. IMHO, the possible risks of altering are *far* outweighed by then benefits in this situation.
As far as changing personality--I altered my male at a year old, and his personality is no different. In fact, the only difference is that he does not hump every female dogs he meets.
