I have a nine month old female purebred mutt that I have not yet spayed. I have heard many people say that their female (not male) became aggressive or even began to have separation anxiety after being spayed. I know the health benefits to spaying but I also want to make sure it is also beneficial for her mentally/behaviorally. I have two young children and I would never want her personality to change so drastically that she would become aggressive towards them. If you have any personal experience with this or any information concerning this topic, please let me know!!!
