Unlike the rest of you, I won't hide my face or post with a fake name. Now, the author of this article is in the wrong saying that all/most Mexicans don't spay or neuter their pets. Don't generalize like that. Many ethnicities choose not to spay or neuter their animals for reasons unknown to me. The only somewhat okay excuse to not have your pets fixed is if they are working stock. No, standing behind your apartment or garage door to bark at people outside is not a job. That's just a dog being a dog. I'm talking herding dogs, gun dogs, etc. Otherwise, there is no real reason to not have your pet fixed. They will live longer and have a much better disposition as they age. And all of the racist banter going on in here, grow up. It's 2012.
