Zeke has to get neutered in a week or two :[ Will that mean he won't grow anymore?

Nope - that just depends on his age! Some shelters will neuter very young pups, and they still grow up just fine!

All neutering does is keep the testosterone from flowing!!;) :D

Nebo was neutered 4 months, and he's still growing. :D Good luck to Zeke, I'm sure he'll be just fine! :)

He'll keep growing and he'll be just fine!!! You wouldn't believe how fast the boys bounce back.

We spay & neuter pups as young as 8 weeks at work and there are never any problems. They just have to weigh 5 lbs for it to be safely done.

Drake was 35 lbs when he was neutered, and now he is a whopping 95 lbs!! Don't worry about Zeke, he'll grow up just fine :D
