My girl is 4 months. When should I get her spayed?

I do not know about Australian Cattle Dogs as I have always had smaller girls and I usually had them spayed three months after their first season - except for my current little one who was spayed at six-months of age before she had a season, but due to many loose dogs around it was decided to spay her early, as soon as she reached 6kg in weight.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will be able to advise whether than would be the appropriate age for your girl or not.
There is no necessity or advantage in a bitch having a litter before being spayed.
There should not be any personality change, nor should a bitch gain weight after being spayed.
All operations have a risk of complications, so does giving birth.
Sex to an animal is just a biological urge. Happiness has nothing to do with it [unlike in humans! ]
tell that to any woman who wanted to have a baby who couldn’t.
my dog put on one collar size within weeks of being fixed . So again wrong,
personality changes immediately and has since, not even subtle .
again try telling a woman who gets a hysterectomy who has hormone issues related to it that it doesn’t affect moods.
The complications were they tore her uterus and she bled and almost died , so yeah !
Big deal when she wasn’t almost dead before she went in ,
guess you just threw that in for good measure did you ?
biological urge ? Oh dear we humans are complicating things with our big brains (not wagging tails)
Did you ever read the book called ‘a dogs tale’?
I suppose I really liked it because it was written from the perspective of a dog and it’s journey.
That’s where I’m coming from with all this,
we’re all mum and dad fur parents .
There are lots of articles on the pros and cons’ of neutering/spaying do lots of research before reaching a decision.
My vet spayed Kyrie just before she turned six months old, and thought that sooner was better.
There’s been no personality change in her that I could tell, other than her maturing a bit as she passed the puppy stage. That said, she was three in late May, and still is quite playful.
Same with the wife’s mini-Aussie.
