OK I should of done this before I got Prissy but ummm my poor Peanut has turned into Romeo! All he wants to do is hump the baby! I told him last night he was going wake up one day and have a few less body parts. My question is this.....will that stop this insane humping issue? And yes as soon as Prissy is old enough she gonna be snipped too!

Humping is not necessarily a sexual behaviour, so neutering won't make a scrap of difference unless it is purely motivated by hormones.
How old is Peanut? If he is humping out of excitement at having a new playmate that will stop over time. If Prissy isn't being hurt or getting upset then don't worry too much, it is a normal part of puppy play

Peanut is 2 yrs. It was so different when I had my Maltese. Cody was fixed and when I brought Alaska home he had no interest like that what so ever! Peanut's hormones are out of whack, he barely eats and all he wants to do is hump her! :foxes15: Oh she lets him know its not ok lol....b/c every time he starts doing it I hear a yelp b/c she has nipped him! You think he would learn but umm no! he is determined

Gizmo was neutered at 6 months old, as per the norm. He still humps things, and he's now 2 years old. Not people, not even other animals - he humps whomever his BFF stuffie is at the time lol. Finley is only 4 months old and he started humping both siblings about a month ago, which I presume is his trying to establish his role amongst the pack but it started pretty early, seems to be an early bloomer that one. We'll see how it goes as he matures, but I don't expect neutering him will fix it completely either ;)

No it wont fix it completely I understand that but once I have them both fixed it will cut it down drastically and that is my goal. I just shake my head at him. I dont tell him off....I just wish he would play with her more than try to rape her haha Geesh oh mighty! I never knew my child was like this EVER!
