I have a 5 month old artic wolf/shepherd mix. I just got him neutered. Will this stunt his growth or do anything to his temperament? If any changes or effects, what?

Getting any canine neutered that young will change his growth. He will probably get longer and leaner - almost looking like a cartoon shape. Males who are not neutered before they are done growing tend to look more balanced and "normal." There are various opinions as to how it will change his temperament. Most people say it will make him easier to handle, since he won't have the seasonal hormonal surge of a pure wolf, or the ongoing hormonal surge of an intact adult male dog. Others say dogs that are neutered are more aggressive and reactive. I think over all, getting them neutered at closer to a year of age is ideal. Pure wolves CAN be quite intense during their breeding season (winter.)
