i don't know how it's called in english ,but yesterday i went to my friends house, she has a chi too, and cosmo was humping him :shock: :shock: at 4 months ,is this normal? and today he lifted his leg outside.....
isn't this all way too soon? can he be castrated earlier?? he's 4 months and 4 pounds
i'm scared for paris, i haven't seen him do it to paris, but she's so tiny and accidents can't happen.

kisses nat

At 4 months it isn't usually sex, it's usually a dominance thing. If he feels he already is dominate over Paris he won't bother but the other chi was a new factor and this was his way of showing he was alpha. There is another thread about this in Chi Chat I think. Marcus was lifting his leg at 4 months too so evidently that isn't too young.

Ah found the thread if I can make the link work

This reminds me of that hilarious thread about which pups are and are not humping their stuffed animals and the violation of the rights of the stuffed animals. I hope that link Tinker posted goes to that thread. :lol:

Frasier is 6 months, neutered 1 week ago and I'm relieved to report there has been no humping or leg raising.

I would neuter him asap. If you don't it could lead to serious problems. Is Paris spayed? If not everytime he is around her then he will most likely spray/ mark.

:wink: Not necesarily, unlike big dogs the small breeds are really different, 4 months is too early and besides like said before at this stage is more of a dominance thing..not a hor ny one..just keep an eye on them and you should be fine..like Tinker said, maybe he knows Paris is under his paw already :D he just needed to be the tough guy with the other Chi :D
