Leo got neutered today..

I took Leo back to the shelter for his neuter today...I felt so bad leaving him there, and of course a little worried. I hate any animal having an operation. I walked in a while ago to pick him up, and the lady asks, "Who are you here for"? I said, "Leo"...and you should have heard the howling from the back room, he heard my voice lol. They said he whined and howled ALL day for me. One of the caretakers also said that when she was walking him back from surgery, and he saw the kennel, he did the splayed all fours on the floor thing and she had to pick him up to put him in there. He's so stubborn...I'm glad it's over, but I still feel bad that he had to think I would take him back there ya know? He is such a big part of this family already, I actually found my little dog, Cody, laying outside of Leo's empty kennel a few times today..I'm glad Leo is home..all three dogs are now sound asleep in there kennels..sigh. Love you Leo!

Oh, I am all for spay/neutering...I just had a hard time worrying about him today. None of my three dogs will ever add to the overpopulation.

I am okay with it but be careful rates breeds should not be spayed or neutered only common breeds rare breeds need every member to avoid extinction.

Rare breeds do need most of their members, yes. However, not all are worthy of contributing to the gene pool, even if it is a small gene pool. If they have severe structural faults or genetic diseases, it is better to spay/neuter even rare breeds.

Aww im sorry he went through this but it will make him healthier overall.
I have a 14 year old dog that my dad did not neuter, he has testicular cancer, which could have been prevented had my dad done the responsible thing.

Thank you for being a responsible pet owner, I know it is hard, but youre awesome for having it done! I remember when I was 11 we had my cat neutered, he stayed overnight and I remember crying myself to sleep I worried about him so much :)
