My 3 GSDs are the only dogs I've ever had that were intact, aside from a very tiny yorkie I had about 25 years ago. I've always just automatically spayed and neutered everything after 6 months old. Now I have show dogs. No one is spayed or neutered.
Carly gets all lovey and smushy when she is in heat, and Sage gets a little grumpy and keeps to herself. That's it for the girls. The rest of the time, they aren't any different than the dogs I've had spayed in the past.
Russell is just Russell. I was worried about having a big intact male in the house, but he's no trouble at all. Though he is currently at his breeder's house while Sage is in heat. We don't want any Sage/Russell ooops puppies! I'm hoping to show that big lug when he is at least 2 years old, maybe 3, but if I don't, I have no intentions of neutering him. There's no reason to as far as I can see.
