|Wild Wolf||Yes, he is still male despite being neutered and can absolutely display some of the behaviours intact males exhibit. I worked with a male GSP once who would constantly try to breed his female companion when she was in heat.|

|Chief&Mia's dad||Thankyou for all the replies. My male Chief was fixed at 7 months and has never had any issues up until about a month ago. At around 7 months my female matured drastically in appearance and attitude. I have noticed light blood spotting so I assume she is going into her first heat. I do plan on getting my female spayed after her heat is over and was just hoping people have had similar issues and that there may be a end in sight. I'm not too worried about aggression at least not toward my family but he is dog aggressive and even though they have never fought I still worry due to the size of him. Thanks alot I was worried but seems like this could be just him being primal. I guess I'll have to crate him when I'm not around and protect the floors.|

Even though he's neutered, he's still male! If medical conditions have been ruled out, I'll bet you he's just going a little crazy being around a female in heat. How long has this been going on?
Neutered dogs will still mount and sometimes even tie, so keep them separated if you don't want that happening. He can't get her pregnant, of course, but I'd be worried about injuries or infections that may occur--not that breeding generally causes that, but I'd want to be on the safe side.
Be aware that there may be other behavioral changes brewing; you might see in increase in aggression. Something to keep in mind if you foresee a situation where his frustration may escalate.

How old was your boy when he was neutered? My boy was 2 and when my female went in to heat we would actively mount her and even tied once.
Lots of males will display a variety of odd behavior, from not eating, to barking, to inappropriate urination, destructive behavior. So it could be that, or it could be that HER behavior has changed, stressing the dynamic in the house and he is reacting to that.

I hope someone with more knowledge can answer. But I have heard of males acting crazy around females in heat, so it is possible.
My neutered male dog pees in the house when we have other male dogs visiting.

5 year old male around female in first heat
Hi I was hoping someone could answer this question for me. My 5 year old male who has never had accidents in the house ( even when he was a puppy) has started deficating and now urinating in the house. He is fixed but I have a 8 month old female who is entering her first heat. Could the two be related? I spent over 1000 on tests and xrays to rule out health issues such as parasites, tumors or a foreign bodies in his intestines. I did switch his food gradually months prior to all this starting with no ill effect so I doubt that is the problem. Has anyone seen this before?
