if i recall, you were the one who mentioned some killer, unneutered boxers and blamed their cojones for their activity. i am sick of people treating S/N like it's a cure-all that you can use in lieu of training etc - S/N is not the hallmark of responsibility.
I wonder why at least 90-95% of all dogs in shelters are INTACT?
This comes from a shelter worker - I never SAW the neutered pets because, their owners were more responsible, they licensed their pets and cared enough to contain their pets.
I don't know the correlation or the math or the statistics, but I know what I SAW.
Responsibility comes in all forms, keeping your dog in your property is one form - but an intact pet IS more likely to wander, it is a fact.
They have a reason to.
S/N may not the THE only hallmark but it sure is one, in most case.
How many owners out there shouldn't even have a dog at all, let alone an intact one??
Sure, HERE, on this little microcosm called PBF, owners are responsible but in real life, HOW MANY?
Pop over to craigslist for a good example of what happens when pets are left intact, or go work at a shelter for a day, euth. day, preferably.
