Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear Monster is doing this. Unfortunately it is more of a dominant and obsessive compulsive behavior than sexual when they have been neutered. I have a personal dog that does this and I neutered him myself so know he has no testosterone!He primarily does it when he is anxious as a release of the energy and sometimes does it without cause. I actually have him on a supplement to help reduce his anxiety and it helps a lot, along with regular 30-45 minute walks daily to reduce the nervous/ anxious energy.This is the supplement I use for my dog. He is 8 pounds but gets a medium/ large dog size to control his symptoms (which also includes licking everythinghttp://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=compusure+treatThe swellings you see with this scenario are the bulbourethral glands which are on the shaft of the penis and can become engorged with excitement. It is normal with even male neutered dogs to have this occurLastly, if he stays out/ exposed for too long then there is risk of injury to his penis and this can be an emergency. I would purchase a muzzle so that if this occurs again you can help get him back into his prepuce with lubrication. KY jelly or even vaseline can help and should be kept at home in case it is needed.Here is more information on this condition: http://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/diseases-conditions-of-dogs/reproduction/paraphimosis-and-phimosis-in-dogsPlease let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with today
