need advice from breeders
I have a male Havanese who is nearly a year old. In our contract we agreed to keep him intact until 18 months for breeding purposes. He is now 10 months old and is 12 1/2 inches, which I think is above thestandard. Additionally, he has a right leg deformity (the ulna has stopped growing but the radius continued, causing a bowing). Both our vet and the orthopedist recommended neutering because of thepossibility that the leg problem is congenital, so we were planning to have this done when he has surgery for his leg. However, the breeder wants us to collect him to use him for breeding. Our vet says this is unethical and refuses to do it. We're not sure what to do, and I was wondering what others think about this.
