Hello Romulus!!! Woof, woof, GGrrrr! (and I am not telling you, his owner, what i said!. The best age to sterilize is at about 6 months of age before the testosterone levels peak at about 8-9 months. I would suggest you speak to your vet about this as well as some vets prefer leaving a large breed dog a bit longer. There is an article on my free www.friendsofthedog.co.za site under the Puppy section which give all the pro's and con's of sterilization - do tell your owner to have a look! Have a great Romulus and remind your owner to take you out for a walk, Scotty
