To reduce the number of free-roaming dogs, there is only ONE way to get there fast: target all females first for sexual neutralization.
Here’s is an example:
A female has a litter of 8 pups, half of which are females.
A year later, her 4 female pups will have been bred, likely by their brothers, father or uncles, to each produce another 8 pups. Add to those 32 dogs, the mom’s second litter of 8 pups and her previous litter’s 4 males, and we now have a total of 44 unwanted free-roaming, under-socialized fearful dogs running around.
Of course, there will be mortality but still..
1 female left intact has the potential to produce 44 offspring within a year, many of which will be inbred and living a life not worth living.
Target ALL FEMALES first, if not why not?
