Default sterilizing female gsd

hello
I have a perfect female gsd which is 4month, I have read that they can get cancer if you don't sterilize female gsd, if they don't get puppies then.
it's my first German Sheppard so I am not up for puppies, would the sterilization change her personality ?
what experience du you have around this subject?

It's a good idea to have your dog spayed. Talk to your veterinarian about the best time to do the procedure. It won't change her personality.

Its a good idea to get her spayed esp seeing how you are not wanting puppies... It will not change her personality

I have a female German Shepherd who was recently spayed. She continues to train in schutzhund and agility, her drives, temperament and attitude have not changed at all.

She is still a spunky little thing, the only difference is now she can't reproduce.
