Gus, didn't even get to see your first Birthday..

As per rescue policy, his momma had to have him neutered very young... He died during surgery. He was the lucky one she was going to keep.

That is too young to be neutered. My friend adopted a GSD mix from a shelter and the on site vet said he puts "testicles not yet descended" to delay the neuter to 6-8 months. Every now and then you run into someone that knows what the right thing to do is and knows the system is wrong (btw, she took him in at 7 months for his neuter). I am so sorry the system failed this puppy!

Aww what a sweet pup he was, so sorry he is gone. It happens sometimes whether the pup is 8 weeks or 8 months.

Anesthesia for anything is always a risk - an adult dog could die during a dental even.

Its nice that rescues try and save these lives and prevent overpopulation...but that's just plain unnecessary...sign a contract...offer free spay at the proper age....that young??? That's just going to mess up mental development of any normal dog in general...welcome back to death row...if you HAVE to do it young...6 mo...at least...this is truly depressing...

its sad that someone who KNOWS what that does to dogs would do that

Problem is that rescues and shelters know exactly what they are doing with this policy, and know it's worth the risk on the front end with the spay/neuter for a puppy. Because these are EXACTLY the same people putting down happy and healthy older puppies and adult dogs because there are just not enough homes in the USA for all the unresponsible breeding that takes place.

I know they take the risk of some puppies having problems with the surgery, cause it's sure to mean THAT dog isn't the proud mom/dad of possibly dozens of future irresponsible breedings and to be added to the current over population of pets in the USA.

If all the pet owners in the USA were responsible and millions of unwanted dogs (happy and healthy for many of them) weren't having to be killed every year as it is, then the decisions shelters and rescues have to make would be more flexible.

Just because many of us ARE responsible and able to keep our dogs intact to get older before spay/neuter......... this clearly is NOT what is going on for too many others.
