I know this is an odd question buuuuuut when does the little red rocket come out? Avery's now 7 months and he tries to hump me, my friends and the blankets as a dominance thing. The red rocket never comes out. TG!!
We were at the dog park and he doesn't defend himself when other dogs try to hump him.... ones with HUGE red rockets. I have to interviene and save my poor little guy. He looks so helpless LOL I guess my question is he too young for it to come out or is it an excitement thing? Not that I want him to have a red rocket. He was snipped before we got him. And some of the dogs were snipped at the park but still were going around with their thingy out haha
I'm no doctor but I thought if you snipped off his manhood they don't get red rockets. am I wrong?

"A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"- John Grogan
It's a penis. It's not a red rocket, it's not a thiny, it's a penis. Say the word. Go on, you can say it.
When a dog is snipped, they take the testicles, not the penis.
Since he was castrated so early in life, he might never let his penis out of the sheath. My boys tend to let their penises out of their sheath when they relax. Or when my mother comes over since she tends to freak out. lol

*snickers at Laura* My older male has an issue where he loves to hump his brother. His "Red Rocket" Oops Penis, comes out also. He is intact so different from your dog. My other male, also intact, has never had an issue with his Penis.
Had to share a story, when my son was 2, his sister came running upstairs from the play room with her brother in tow. My mother (who had an issue with proper words), was visiting. Here comes my 4 yr old screaming Momma, Trevor hurt his penis!!...mom who was in company with a friend was mortified. I think it scarred mom for life...lol
Rocky was neutered at 18 months so not sure this has impact. His penis comes out when he is very relaxed (getting a good ear scratch) or when he is exited. he is in no way a dominant dog. though he will correct a dog that is being unpolite.

Honestly, I would be more concerned with the humping and why you haven't trained that dog to respect you so that he does not hump you or visitors than whether or not his penis pops out of the sheath once in a while.
My dogs have never tried to hump me or another human being. And if it happened ONCE, it most certainly would not happen again.
I call it a red rocket too...consider yourself lucky and don't second guess it! Tucker's is ALWAYS out...he was fixed (I too thought once they were neutered it no longer came out...you can imagine how dumb I sounded when I called the vet after!)...it is SO gross and has caused many embarrassing moments...I think I am jealous of you...lol
Toby has had part of his out from time to time and I really would rather not see it.

I'd be a lot more concerned about the humping too
