Kyra was desexed at 8 or 9 weeks.. can't fully remember, she was a rescue and had to be done before she came to me. She hasn't had any problems, however we bought our sharpei from a registered breeder who told us its best to wait until he's 18 months to desex him and all i had was problems, he was trying to hump kyra and all sorts of crap so he lost his bits about a fortnight ago now.
Much prefer them to be done as pups, they recover quicker and there's no dramas.
My shelter likes having smaller puppies, like chi's desexed at a slightly older age so they get done at 12 weeks. (My two Lhasa Apso X fosters go back this am YAY).
