I have a 3 yr old terrier who has become very aggressive

I have a 3 yr old bull terrier who has become very aggressive towards other dogs. If he were neutered would he be less aggressive? How soon would we see a change in behavior if any? My son and I disagree on this. I wanted him neuteredas soon as he was old enough. My son thinks "it's cruel."

Is this growth on my 4 year old neutered Boston Terrier

Is this growth on my 4 year old neutered Boston Terrier normal? (Pictures below). It is located on his behind, a couple inches below is anus. It's basically at the base of his penis (where his testicles once were I suppose). It is visible from behind when he is standing/walking. It seems to go up and down in size. I am wondering if this can be checked at his annual check up in November, or if we should go sooner? Any idea what it could be? Thank you!

Our German Shepherd died unexpectedly. He was in the care of

Our White German Shepherd died unexpectedly. He was in the care of a Vet/Kennel as we were away for a week. He had no signs of illness when we dropped him- he played, ate, and seemed to be in normal, good shape. A few days after we dropped him off, we got a call from the vet saying that he was not eating and had very bloody stool and also he had blood coming from his nose. We were shocked as he didn't show any prior symptoms. We lost him in less than 24 hours after he first showed signs of something being wrong. The vet doesn't have much idea to what happened. It is also worth noting that he did escape from his kennel a day before the symptoms started (the space he escaped to is mostly enclosed though). We are debating about doing an autopsy, but wonder if you may have any insights into what might have happened. Thank you.

I have a 4 year old lab mix. He was neutered as a puppy.

Hello, I have a 4 year old lab mix. He was neutered as a puppy. Over the past six months or so he has started to get random erections. It appears to come out of nowhere and he will arch his back and thrust the air. He does not mount objects. He looks scared when it is happening. The erections last for 5-10 minutes and the past two times there has been a drop of bright red blood that comes from his penis. Is this something I should be worried about?
