We have two female Irish Setters, and yesterday aquired a male English Setter.
Problem is this!
Our old girl is spayed, which isn't a problem, but Tessi is 2 and is still full, and is rather hormonal when she comes in to season (hey boys, here I am!)
We aquired Rufus yesterday froma foster home, and he has really settled Tessi's behaviour down (no more barking, running at the door, beating poor old Sorrel to play) in 24 hours.
My question is this. With both Rufus and Tessi being entire, will this cause any problems? He seemed interested in her at first, but not so much now.
He has full pedigree papers, and is a truly handsome dog, and we're wondering whether to breed, and just Tessi spayed and leave him entire.
Will it make much of a difference if we do or don't breed him, and will he go fluffy/fat if I do neuter him.
Will it make his temperament any better? (he's an extremely loving dog as it is!)
Thank you in advice for your help!
Sophie, Sorrel, Tessi, Rufus.
