We took Bella to a dog park this evening and I was surprised at the number of loving pet owners who have not neutered their male dogs. These were all mixed breeds, I don't recall seeing any so-called "pure" breeds.

So, why? I am curious about why people don't neuter more often. I thought I'd read that it resulted in less health problems.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
I hate seeing this, but I see it a lot. Some male owners have issues with it: they are thinking of their own balls. Ugh

I think it's totally irresponsible if you're taking a dog to a dog park or if your dog may possible get out. My stepbrother and nephew used to take my dad's old dog to a dog park and he wasn't neutered. While he always behaved, I thought it was completely irresponsible and wasn't shy about sharing that. (Though I did attempt tact while saying it.) He also used to jump their 6' wall which they built taller in an attempt to keep him in, so they would never leave him outside unattended - so in that way at least they kept him contained. It's such a minor surgery, all things considered, and I don't accept any excuse for not doing it. He was a purebred and they theoretically wanted to breed him someday because standard poodles can be hard to find. They never did get around to it, and their male they have now is neutered.

I just don't know how the non-neuterers can get past the marking behavior. One experience w/ that and we were at the vet's office w/ a quickness! Like the next day.

Just to clarify on mine in case anyone gets up in arms - I really don't care if you keep your animal 100% contained within your personal realm and don't influence anyone else's animals. Then, it's your business only.

This kind of thinking is ridiculous,self centered,& cruel . I met a guy that refused to neuter his dog because he didn't want to take away his "manhood". I told him that his dog is not a man & would not miss his equipment. I also told him that left intact his dog would impregnate any unspayed females...he thought that was cool... resulting in loads of puppies many of which would be unwanted,abandoned,used as bait to train fighting dogs,sold to puppy mills, & abused by evil people. I compared it to the many black men who have numerous baby mamas to prove their manhood & don't give a hoot about the kids who often grow up neglected in unstable fatherless homes & who are now in human shelters
(PRISONS) or else killing each other in the streets. Throwaway kids & throwaway pets.As a long time teacher I've seen the effects of this. I told him someone once said you can tell a lot about a society by the way it treats its animals,kids, & elders He said he'd never thought of it that way & would reconsider neutering his dog. Just in the past 2 weeks or so , in separate instances in Philly, two young pit bulls were found having been set on fire & left to die. Unwanted. One did die & the other is under SPCA care & a reward is offered in both cases.
I've had pets almost all my life since I was a baby & have 2 rescue cats now & they were always fixed. My parents strongly believed in it & all but a few were rescues, & those that weren't were adopted from folks who had pups or kittens.
So please ,folks, get over those ridiculous anti neutering ideas. They cause MILLIONS of dogs & cats to
die needlessly every year .

Ruairi is neutered, but still seems to have... urges. Is it possible the dogs at the dog park are neutered and are just still acting like they're not?

I'm pretty sure it's easy to see if a male dog is neutered or not...they'll have two round things hanging between their back legs if they're intact. Of course, you can't see if a female is spayed or not, unless you look for a scar on the belly, and, even then, it's not always easily visible.
I know what a non-neutered male looks like :P

We were actually in the small dog area because Bella's only 10 pounds. She played with a neutered schnauzer named Hans but he wasn't much of a playmate because he's 12. Since he didn't want to play, Bella played with his human.

My observation came from watching the dogs in the large dog area. When they hike their legs up to pee, it's pretty easy to see all their business. There was lots of peeing going on!

Bella is five months old and every now and then when she's feeling particularly feisty, she "dominates" her pink monkey.

She'll be getting spayed in about a month.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
My dog is very young, and is not yet neutered. But he will be, and I can't wait. If my vet would let me do it now, I would. But she said wait until 6 months, so. Whatever. It severely limits our options for outings and doggy daycare.

When I got him I was told, "we leave spaying and neutering up to you," because they thought I'd breed him. Yeah, that's never going to happen. He's enjoying his balls while he can because they will be out of here as soon as possible. LOL

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

Our first dog was a German Shepherd and I must admit we didn't get him neutered until he was about 10. Don't know why we didn't - it was just something we didn't think about. I actually can't remember why we eventually did it at that age.
Our last two dogs have been adults from the Rspca and both were neutered before we got them. I wouldn't think of having an un-neutered dog these days.
