I was wondering if any of you have had a puppy that over stimulated itself with another dog. The puppy in qustion is a 3 month old male Shepherd, he was bought by a family with an adult female, spayed Lab and has been mounting her, he than had a problem bringing his penis back up into the sheath and it required surgery, the Vet told the owners that neutering him at that time would alleviate the problem, which seems odd to me in light of the fact the puppy is obviously not sexually mature.

I don't recall what the diagnosis was, in any event any opinions or thoughts out there?

Humane societies have been neutering & spaying pups at 12 weeks for several years now. I don't know if it will deminish the mounting behavior because at this age it is play/dominance rather than sex drive.
