Age to neuter

    I'm sure this question has been asked before... I'm currently looking for a dog and am meeting a 7 month old APBT this coming week. He is intact and I'm more familiar with the guidelines for larger dogs as far as neuter/spay.

    What is the recommended age to neuter? I'm mostly concerned because I have an 11 month old female Bullmastiff that will not be spayed until 18 mos to 2 years old. I feel pretty confident that I can handle two intact dogs, but I'd rather avoid it if I can.

    I won't neuter before 18 months. My mini poodle is over a year now and still intact.

    Ok, that's what I was wondering. I know for large/giant breeds it's recommended 18 mos to 2 years.

    Not before 2 years and not at all unless necessary, IMO.

    I'd say never.
