Hello, we'll bring home a GS puppy in November. We must decide whether we want a male or a female. We're leaning towards a male but neutering a male worries me. In my home country neutering is not as common as in the US (where I live). My American friends are all in favor of neutering. My friends in Europe tell me neutering can make a male lazy and effeminate, and even cause overweight, and say it's totally doable to have an intact male. Thoughts? Thanks.
