Hi there, Little bit of advice needed, I currently own a 1.5 year old whippet Bitch, wonderful girl and much loved, we have had the opportunity to rehome a Male whippet, a year old - very sweet and gets on well with Olive. Neither are spayed. Olive had her first Heat 3 months ago, so im not too worried about her coming into heat but do not want to chance it as im aware they can be sporadic. We had planned to spay olive before her next heat, but as the new pup must be rehomed asap Im unsure who to do first and in what time frame. I would prefer to spay the male first because I dont love the idea of having an unspayed male- just based on most of the unruly dogs at our local park being unspayed and im terrified of him getting hurt- He is friendly and submissive but one dog in particular i know is reactive to any unspayed male and it has put me on edge after a few incidences- and of course I do not want puppies. I can imagine joining a new home and then going through the op stressing any dog out alot? - how soon would be a good time? Also in terms of a healing process how do you keep two young excitable dogs calm, do you walk one dog without the other as normal. If you cant walk them properly for two weeks how can you expect them to stay calm at home? So any advice on how to deal with a pup after a spay when you cant give them the exercise they need would be helpful too! We have always had rescued dogs who arrive spayed so have never been through this process before and im a little apprehensive. Thankyou !
