My new puppy (we've had for 3 months, he is 8-10 months old we think) is finally getting neutered next week! Yay for neutering. BUT, I'm scared (aside from medical procedure fears) that his cute wee personality is going to change or he is going to hate us forever. My previous love was already neutered when we got him, so I have no experience with the before and after. Any stories/advice/words of comfort? Thanks.

I've had two puppies neutered, both right around 6 months. Besides a few days of discomfort, neither one really even seemed to notice it. Their personalities certainly didn't change! If Amos loves me any less because I paid someone to remove his testicles, you wouldn't know if from the fact that he just let me shower him with like 100 kisses.

Oh I forgot the most important part: he humps his stuffed animals very, very often. Does that matter? Like will he realize that his favorite activity is forever changed and then be sad? I hope I am just overly concerned.

Also Amos <3 <3 <3.

I have sent hundreds of dogs to be spayed/neutered, from puppies to elderly dogs, and I have never seen a dramatic change in personality. It's a super quick and easy operation, especially for males. I'm sure he'll be fine! He may or may not stop humping. I know plenty of neutered dogs (and cats) who still hump pillows, objects, people, other animals, etc. Once it has become an ingrained habit, it usually stays unless you train them not to do it.

ha. i'm sorry that i totally have to laugh at you wondering whether your dog will be sad if he doesn't want to hump things anymore. i had a neutered cat that humped stuffed animals all the time.

He will love you forever and always, balls or no balls!

Seriously though, he'll be totally himself. Temperament changes typically only take place if the dog has been doing something hormonally motivated, like hormone based aggression. Humping can be based on hormones but also often isn't, so he might stop or might do it a bit less or might do it all the time with no change. My female chihuahua humps her "brother" when she's excited/showing off for guests so testicles aren't required for that!

He might forget his housetraining temporarily and pee in the house. That happened with my old dog and I had also read to expect it. After I caught him in the act one time he went back to normal.

Such an adorable picture!

Anyone else have a dog that never humps? I've had my furball for 8 years, and he was never neutered, yet he hasn't humped even once in all that time.
