The term for a male dog is neuter - Spay refers to a doggy histerectomy (sp). I would not neuter your dog now. I'd wait until he was much older - at least 2 yo but more likely 5 or more. They're coming up with health issues regarding neutering for skeletal/joint issues and cancer. Wait.

My vet told me to wait after first heat. Because of hormones, something goes wrong and dogs don't grow properly.

I can't say I wasn't disappointed, I don't know how I am going to deal with blood, diapers are no go, she would want to play with them I guess I'm gonna use some clothing ... Doing what's best for her. It's better to wait 2-3 weeks than pay more than 5000 euros for operations.

Great post btw, I was in dilemma too. Still am, if I'm honest.
