I heard the samething once, but I didn't believe it because I think its bull! Maybe someone knows if this is trully true or not! I'm guessing No but you never know!

I've never heard it, but I would assume it to be false.

Is your dog a she or a he? Neutered for Males, Spayed for Female!

It's a myth!.
It has been proven that it's not true.
If you spay them before the 1st heat,their chance of not getting mammary cancer is close to a 100% while if you wait,it increases with each heat.
As for a male,
Healthwise ,it doesn't change mucn but characterwise,he will be more stable, will stay at home and be calmer.He will also have a tendency to be less conflictual with other males.
I,myself, don't really believe this cos it has more to do with training.
I do believe that all mix breeds should be spay and neutered,fancy breeds like(goldendoodle,labadoodle,puggle and Etc,included....

Okay- having a litter doesn't change what the female is.. Good temperment or bad.
Second of all if its a rough whelp, you are asking for infection in the womb.. If you do not plan on showing- best to spay early. Showing is to " determine breeding stock" so they have to be un spayed...
I found spaying before they would come in a great help. No reason to worry on inflamed uterus so they heal faster, and also- no unexpected pups. with the pet population as it is- best to only breed if it " betters the breed"...
