12. I didn't neuter Zeus (black lab) until he was almost 2.

This was on advice of the breeder. His experience was one of waiting until the boys were fully grown. Bones, joints, muscles, etc all strong and stable. Hip issues almost non existent in those later castrations. Zeus has a strong, sleek body with no hip or other joint issues. He did hump his big stuffed gorilla until the “procedure”. Afterwards - never. And you can bet I made sure Zeus did not have access to ANY female dogs while still intact. For us it was the right decision

Zeus is 10 1/2
