I dont know if it's been mentioned, and don't know how well this would work out given the uncommon nature of the procedures, but maybe do a contract for surgical sterilization other than neutering? I think I'll be going with a vasectomy if I end up with a male dog... though my current plan for a male is a Lundehund, which will possibly be bred. I wouldn't buy a male pup from someone requiring me to neuter him, at least not before full maturity, and that seems like a tough one with most breeders. It's good to see people understanding the importance of this before breeding. I really love this breed, and have considerd them very seriously off and on, but honestly the politics seem like a big dramatic mess. Too bad for everyone involved. I've read some really great things about their lifespans, and that's huge for me. Anyone have stats on this?
