I just got back from the vet and I'm told that my dog has an enlarged prostate and it is causing him some kidney problems. This means I need to neuter him within the week. Now before everyone makes nasty judgmental comments, there is is a reason why I left him in tact. My dog is my baby and is the sweetest dog, every one who has met him agrees as well. I did not ever plan to breed and sell puppies and run off with the money. Also, he is strictly an indoor house dog and I never let him go outside unsupervised and he does not socialize with any unfixed females, I have always been extremely cautious of this. I wanted puppies from him that I could keep for myself to love (I would have had the puppies fixed so there would not be a population problem) and be part of my family. So now I am devastated that this will not happen. I much rather never have children of my own than for my dog not to pass on his gentle nature and sweet temper. I have read that there are sperm banks for dogs, has anyone tried this? What was the procedure like? Anyone know the success rate? Thank you! Again, no negative comments please, I am already bawling my eyes out.
