Re: Speutering of mature male/female dogs

Good morning all I have 100% committed to not breeding my beautiful lab Canon, but I had also decided to leave him intact due to the fact that he's properly contained at all times and he has never given any signs of trying to escape / go prowling for "tail" :) I was confident with this de...
