    To the OP: it can be confusing because of the way some neutering procedures are done these days. I work at a dog rescue and some of the dogs actually appear to still have testicles, but are actually desexed. This is because one of the ways to do it is to remove the sac altogether, and the other simply leaves part or all of the sac intact. If it is large and palpable, the dog is still entire.

    My dog, for instance, has nothing remaining. My OH's dog was recently neutered and his sac looks the same, if not a bit smaller because it was left.


    I'm jumping to conclusions you say !!!!!!!!!!

    Well i don't think i am at all considering the op's choice of words... ffs what type person calls their dog ant IT & uses the words "GET RID OF IT"...

    It's not oo much how the op's friend came to have their SBT.. it to me is all about if their SBT has ever been seen by a VET at all whilst in their care .. surely vaccinations & general check up etc have been given??????

    AF, as the OP has already stated, it was given to their friend by somebody else. Family member, friend, somebody whose responsibility it WAS to look after the dog. Instead, OP's friend has it.

    Not as many people put so much thought into wording as you appear to; this is the internet and the way somebody types is generally not the way that they THINK.

    Re it being "their dog," if you read correctly, it is not the OP's dog.


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...

    Anyone given a dog by a friend or family member or any rescue worth it's salt should advise the new owner of a few things. One of which should be whether or not the dog is de-sexed.

    If you have taken on a dog, whether as a rescue or from a family member or friend then whether the dog is de-sexed should be one of the first questions you ask the previous owner.

    If you have taken a stray off the streets return it to the pound it's owners may be looking for it.

    Come on DA ban me before I lose it.

    The dog is NOT the OP's dog. STOP with the accusations!

    Aussie Floyd, just because someone is treating an SBT in a manner that you don't like (ie, "giving it away"), does not mean you have the right to be so rude. Your posts are becoming increasingly insulting. And yes, it CAN be hard to tell if the dog is desexed. A male dog can still look entire even if they've been desexed. So the question is indeed valid!

    MAC, not everyone thinks to ask questions =) Perhaps the dog's original owner is ill or something similar? I hope you don't lose it, MAC =( You have always been a great source of advice.

    Yeah when i got banjo he still had what looked like his balls.. and I actually came on here and asked almost the same thing lol. I was quite confused.. but now after a few months the leftover um.. sack has almost vanished..
    I would think if you/they were really unure you could easily pop into a vet.. I dont think they would charge for that- or very little. and at least you would be sure

    my friend took it from some one who was belting the **** out of it, only a week ago, it has been in a fight with a pit bull as well, my friend lives in a unit and can not keep it there, as you know staffies love space, he has all his papers, but nothing says that he is desexed.

    Then don't worry if it has been de-sexed just get in touch with a rescue because it obviously can't stay in a unit desexed or not.

    Can I ask why it is important to know whether it is de-sexed or not??

    When he took the dog he also took the papers???

    Did it get seen by a vet after it had been in a fight???

    Hmmm...

    Where are you DA???

    Well if your friend took the dog.. has the owner signed the dog over to your friend?, the original owner still has legal ownership other wise ( even though they are unworthy of owing a pet) & they can take the matter further legally.

    It may be a good idea for your friend to surrender the SBT to the RSPCA & let them deal with ownership & hopefully prosecute the owner with animal cruelty charges etc. Or your friend could take the dog to local council pound & explain the circumstances to them.. i'm not sure if any rescue group will take the dog unless the legal owner signs the dog over to them.

    When I had my boy neutered it took quite a few months for his 'sack' to shrink.
    It has been about 6 months now and he still has a bit of a lump there. Which is a pain in the butt with a poodle because you have to try and use clippers around a flappy sack

    It's usually pretty obvious though as there is quite a bit of shrinkage straight up, then they disappear completely over the course of about 6 months.

    With Brody there was just a tiny cut as the base of his penis. I (having never had a dog neutered before) thought they had made a mistake because when we got him out of the car there were still 2 big beebees dangling there
