Question Does anyone here have a dog that is not neutered?

I was out with Duncan and I came across a lady who had a,get this,chichua(sp?)labrador mix.It was a male and I asked what vet she uses,and if she likes the practice,etc....then I asked if she was going to have her dog neutered and she almost took my head off saying how cruel it was.I jusy stood there shocked and couldn't believe this woman was verbally assaulting me and me wanting to have my dog fixed.Go figure!!!!

Some people like the idea of Mutts LOL and some people think fixing them is curel .I do not see how it can be cruel prebred or muts if you are not going to breed then why not fix them??? why take a chance of unwanted animal dont we have enough in the pounds and on the streets? Yoda is not neutered as of yet but he will be soon,he is not going to be bred do not take it to heart some people are strange like that.

Dotndani,

If you don't show your dog, there is no reason not to fix him/her. I personally think that it's curel not to spay/neuter your dog. If you take your unneutered dog to the park, there is a really good chance of him being attacked by a neutered male. I have personally seen it happen a few times, so don't worry about what others think and do what you feel is right for you.

Dot, I have a friend that feels the same way. She tells me that it's dismemberment to cut a dogs balls off. *her words...sorry for being so coarse. I personally think it's cruel to have your male attracting other aggressive males and putting your dog at risk of serious injury. Also cruel to have your dog going crazy to breed everytime they smell a female---and they can smell a long distance--and then forbiding them to do so. It's cruel also, to allow a pet to breed at random and create more puppies.
This person shouldn't have come down on you so hard--it's none of her business. You are making a healthy choice for yourself and your dog.

Sounds to me like she just needs to "tend to her own knitting!" as my grandmother used to say!
