RedFawn, I can't help but notice the hostile undertones in most of your posts. Is there a reason for this? Have you had a bad experience you would be willing to share with me? I have done a significant amount of research on the doberman breed and feel competent in answering any questions that may come my way. To answer your question, I do not plan on neutering Jaxon. I also have a 16 yr old male miniature daschund (Nugget), a 7 yr. old male black lab(Rastus), and a 2 yr. old female black lab(Lupin), none of whom, except for the female, have been neutered. I do plan on getting another male doberman. All my dogs are raised in a loving and caring environment, and are well socialized and trained. I firmly believe that genetics only goes so far. It is the quality of the dogs life that will ultimately determine its demeanor.
