Two questions for the more experienced DS folks out here
- Is my concern about a rescue DS and drive/bad temperament ill-founded?
- MAD requires spay/neuter within a 6mo window. I have never liked getting a dog 'fix' that young. Even AKC says 6mo is for toy breeds and large/giant breeds should be 12-18 months. Searching here I found a thread talking about age and sounds like for the most part folks here agree. I will not put a puppy into harms way and this is a concern. Keep in mind, I do want to get whatever dog I end up with fixed, just at the correct time that is best for the dogs health instead of a time that gets a box checked for paperwork. So, should I pass on a rescue pup if they insist on getting it fixed that young?
