Default Male dog frantic over female in heat...Help!

This is a quick question for the elderly neighbor who lives behind me. She has a large breed Heinz 57 male dog, who is absolutely frantic over the female pitbull who lives next door to them who is apparently in heat. I could hear his high pitched whining and barking from my house, which is how I ended up outside in the first place. He's running the fence when he is outside, and after she drags him inside, she said he is still running, pacing, jumping in the widows, etc.

She asked if me if I knew what to do with him, and of course I have no idea other than to tell her to get her dog neutered.....but in the mean time, how should she deal with him? I'm afraid she is going to get herself hurt. He is every bit of 80 pounds and she is in her 70's.

old horse trick - rub some vicks under his nostrils.....might be a temp fix

The female is in optimal standing heat if he is acting like this - will only be a day or two....no comfort I know! But both parties need to alter their animals or there WILL be a batch of mutt puppies for the HS to PTS....

If you know her well and are friendly, I'd call around and find out when there's going to be a low-cost spay/neuter event offered by your county/shelter/humane society/vet school, and sign him up for your neighbor. Tell your neighbor you'll help transport him, since he's a big guy. Make it easy for her to do the right thing.

I agree. May want to mention the stress and anxiety she's adding to his life by failing to neuter him if he gets so nuts with that female next door.

Be great if you could get the pitbull fixed too

I dont know this lady very well, we are just on a "hello, how are you?" sort of basis when we see each other out but I did talk to my DH about transporting the dog "Duke" to "face", a low cost clinic near us for her if she wants and he said he would take the dog in his truck. So I'll offer this to her when I see her. She is staying outside with him on potty breaks to make sure he doesnt jump the fence. I might stick a flyer in the Pitbull owners mailbox, I dont speak to them at all.

The poor dog is very stressed. The lady I think has the best of intentions. She said he was her grandsons "puppy" that she was keeping for a week, and now 2 years later he is still there. I'm sure the only reason he hasnt been neutered yet is because she cant get him in the car so hopefully she'll take us up on the offer to haul him back and forth to get fixed.

I'll see what I can do about that pitty.

This sounds like a "dangerous" neighborhood to have an intact animal in, in terms of unplanned breedings and inexperienced owners. How are things going?
