I am not sure that I want to neuter my 9 mo. old, male Shih tzu. He a great puppy with a great attitude that does not need “controlling,” he is never unsupervised so he is not able to run after female dogs and he does not spray often (regardless, that does not bother me). I am concerned about dog cancer, but I wanted to know what are the chances of him getting this, and if I do neuter him will his great attitude change?
His "attitude" will not change if you neuter your pet. Neutering your pet will decrease his chances of prostate cancer and eliminate his chances of testicular cancer. Behavioral problems usually occur after about 1 year of age. vetcare
