    Default pee on all fours

    when your pugs were pups....

    did they go pee on all fours? if they did, do they still do it? Biggie hasnt started lifting his leg when he pees...i know hes just a puppy (5 months), but when should i start expecting him to lift the leg? i just dont want him to get used to doing that in his later years (the other pugs might make fun of him )

    Otis still "pees like a girl" the majority of the time...he rarely lifts his leg and he's almost four years old. He didn't even start lifting his leg until around two years of age.

    Winston still squats and he's 14 months. It doesn't bother me. He doesn't (knock on wood) mark in the house either. It will interesting to see if he ever lifts his leg.

    Most boys start cocking their legs when they reach maturity around 8 months. Some that have been neutered at a young age never **** their leg at all. Saves on marking the bed skirt LOL

    I've got you all beat! Miss Molly lifts her leg and pees like a boy! And she's got good aim, too!

    speaking of neutering....i know that i should because i dont plan on breeding him. but im worried about him not being as playful or as active. my parent maltese was extremely playful before going under the knife. afterwards he just seemed to mellow out.

    have any of you NOT neutered or spayed your pug?

    im hesitant because i like biggie's temperament as is....but can someone convince me otherwise?

    You really should neuter your pug. There are lots of reasons. You don't want him to start marking, it's best for their health, they won't hump, no testicular cancer.
    When we had Stokley neutered, he wa mellow for one day after the surgery and right back to his playful self. I think some people notice a difference because when they get neutered, they're also growing up and mellowness comes with age. But if he's playful now, I wouldn't worry about.

    I neutered both my boys at 6 months, and it did not change their personalities at all. If I ever got another male puppy, I would probably have him neutered at 5 months. Neither of my boys mark for which I am extremely thankful.

    I think temperament is largely determined by genetics, not by the presence (or absence) of testosterone. Neutering/spaying is the way to go: much less likely to mark in the house, happier, healthier and all-around more pleasant to be around. I'd never NOT have my puppy neutered or spayed.

    As for lifting legs - around six months, when the testosterone starts to kick in, he'll start lifting his leg. Some dogs never do, however, and I've seen quite a few bitches that DO lift their legs...
