"A Red girl? You must be a little nuts John"
Yeah... Quite a few people have said that to me. bug tells me that Michelles red bitches, as well bred as they are for temperament, sometimes have a really "ornery' streak. I've had several pushy dogs. So, that does not bother me at all.
My concern? My very mellow current youngest is intact and will remain that way unless specific medical issues dictate otherwise.
I have had rescue females in the past with no issues living with intact males. Yet, they were always spayed.
I would spay any girl that I got eventually. Still... all the best info that I have read suggests allowing her to experience 1-2 "seasons". Even with my castrated dogs, I let them go at least 2 years before surgery. I am just a bit nervous having a dog with balls having to house with a girl who will go into heat twice. Not so much about an "oops" pregnancy, more just about the frustration of the two.
I could always house McCoy with my son. But, if The Sheriff is still alive, they require hands on attention.
I am sure that I can figure it out. Just running it around in my nutty brain.
I am going to be a 67 yo. and a Dobe bitch neophyte! LOL
