To neuter or not to neuter...
I have two dogs, both about a year old (exact age unknown since they're rescues), and I'm not sure if I should neuter or not. I live in the Dominican Republic where people as a whole don't much care for dog health. There are very little vets avaliable, even fewer with actual degrees, so there aren't a lot of places to get a trustworthy opinion.
Like mentioned, both of my dogs are about a year old. I have a Boxer/German Shepherd (James Bond or JB) mix and a Rottie (Cooper), both boys. They get along great, haven't had much trouble with fights for dominance or anything between them. They are guard dogs and due to some annoying people on my block, really really don't like men until they get to know them. They don't bark as much at girls. JB is a tad
bit aggressive with food but nothing major. They have recently starting marking (ugggggg!) and I wake up every morning to my car tires squirted on. Will neutering help with this? What are the benefits to neutering? Is it absolutely necessary or will they do okay without it? Are they already too old?
