This dog was "zeutered" which is a method of neutering by injection. It sterilizes him, but he still acts like a dog that has not been neutered. He peed on just about everything in the house when we got him home. He is good with female dogs (he will try to mount them) but is very aggressive with other males. So I THINK he is acting territorial over me or the house or his sleeping space (He usually sleeps in my room in his crate).
It's strange because my younger brother had some of his friends in the house the other day and he was totally fine...no growling, nothing. My older brother mentioned him growling at one of his friends (a girl) a couple weeks ago, but it was not as violent as last night. I just don't understand what is triggering it. Why does he do this to some people and not others?
I took him to a community event on Friday night and he was perfect. Very friendly, NO aggressiveness whatsoever. He has two possible adopters lined up for him. Both have children. I don't have any concerns that he will attack the kids, but I am afraid if one of the kids invites a friend over, things could get ugly. I just don't know what to do. I'm not sure I feel comfortable adopting him out to someone knowing he can behave like that.
Do you think a surgical neuter could help this? Do un-neutered dogs usually act like this?
I am so disappointed...I was confident he was going to be a perfect family dog :( thanks..
