I don't plan on breeding but I'm just wondering.
I said I'm NOT going to breed him. The reason I ask is because my family got a dog that is 10 years old and not neutered. I just wanted to know if we would save the trouble and not neuter him because he couldn't produce puppies anyway. Neutering a dog at that age is actually very dangerous and it takes them a lot longer to recover.

If he's bred early (no sooner then 2 yrs old) he probably can breed for 5 or 6 yrs depending on what he produces. Good healthy males can breed longer, but the older they get the less they produce. Females should only be bred from age 2-6 at the most. Reputable breeders retire the females after a few litters because you should only let them have 2-3 litters at the most.

In either case, the dog should be a top quality show dog that is being bred.

It's not quite like that people, they shouldn't just breed until they are old.

An older dog can pass on problems to a litter.

I would say no older than 7 maximum.
