My dh's parents gave us their 10 yr old NEUTERED dog a couple weeks ago. As I was loading the dishwasher just now, I happened to look out the window. He's locked together with our female coonhound! So my questions are: 1) How likely is it that she's going to get pregnant? As I said, the other dog is 10 and supposedly neutered. 2) Do neutered dogs even WANT to mate? I thought it took the urge away! MIL's dog, Smokey, is a bird dog of uncertain lineage. MIL had him since he was a puppy, and he's never, ever been around ladies.
