|Nare, most people never know that Nix is intact. His fur hides every detail, so when their dog goes nuts after getting a whiff, they're often as baffled as I am (I never tell anyone he's intact ...in fact I usually don't say anything at all. I can remember only 1 person in the history of Nix who's asked "Is he intact? My dog hates intact males." to which I did answer "yeah, he is" but like I said it's not something I ever bring up, myself, because people would just take that as an excuse to blame Nix and say he's the problem here. Personally I do think it's gotta have something to do with it though... I can't imagine it's just a coincidence that Nix is unpopular with 90% of neutered males we ever meet. It's awfully strange that we've never, ever had an issue with other intact males.
Anyways, sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.
I think that's the best thing to do, Daddy. Just separate the dogs when things start getting heated to the point where you suspect there might be a scuffle. A lot of dogs don't care for rowdy puppies, so it sounds like Daddy was just trying to tell the puppy to calm down. Testosterone fights shouldn't be happening at only 6 months, like Nare said.
