Relationship of inbreeding with sperm quality and reproductive success in Mexican gray wolves

​Ejaculate quality of studs also appeared affected ... with outbred males producing a greater average sperm count/ ejaculate and sperm count/ml of ejaculate. Ejaculate volume, % motility of spermatazoa and testes volume, although not significantly different, also favoured the outbred compared to inbred sires.'

Spaying and Neutering

Assisting Decision-Making on Age of Neutering for 35 Breeds of Dogs: Associated Joint Disorders, Cancers, and Urinary Incontinence

For [Rough Collie] females, given the apparent risks of cancers with spaying at <6 mo. and UI with spaying at 6–11 mo., the guideline is to delay spaying until the female is a year old.
