Seems you have already asked this question before and been answered. Might I suggest you just go and get him done? or do you prefer running the risk of prostate cancer at a later date?

Please do some research on the net about basic and general dog care and behavior. You and your dog will be much happier for it. Are you taking the advice you're given about not leaving your dog alone outside all the time, and bringing him in when it's cold? Dogs need to be with their "pack" and that means you.

Neutering will not make a dog "depressed", and they can be neutered at any age, although neutering an adult may not change behavior all that much, since habits develop and many behaviors are learned.

It will not make him "fat and lazy" either. Lack of exercise makes dogs fat and being fat makes them lazy. Give your dog adequate exercise, a good diet, training and attention and he'll be fine.

Your dog will not notice anything different, and neutering will help with dog aggression and prevent the urges to find and mate with females - in other words, make him more content.
