The folks who live in back of us just took possession of a 5 year old, unspayed Rottie from relatives who couldn't care for her anymore. She's due to go into heat soon. Murray is neutered- how bothered is he going to be?

Each dog is different. But toughy who was nuetered between 5-6 mnth never had an interest. Fischer the harrier was not nueterer until 2. the breeder who had him said he would go off his etc when ever there was a bitch in heat in the area. I notice a few examples of this and other sex hormone related behavior 3-4 months after his surgery but since that time has not exhibit any of those behavior even in off lease close encounters with estreus bitches. I doubt he will show any more interest in her because she is in heat. Any new dog in the proximity is bound to create some intrest just normal dog behavior.

Thanks Mike- they've actually had Abby for a month and Murray likes her alot- she's a nice girl and wants to play with him-

Murray was neutered at about 5 months. I'll be interested in seeing what happens.
