new puppy

Hi everyone!

We just got a new pug puppy and had some questions- this is the first time we've had two dogs, but our second time with a puppy.

Benton is a little over 2, and he is neutered. As soon as he saw her, he started foaming and drooling. He's completely up to date on shots, so we've ruled out rabies. (and he's never been biten)

I looked up the drooling and it seems to be stress/anxiety. It's getting better, but i was wondering if this has happened to anyone else, and what did you do?

Also, Benton is neutered, but he still pokes out. I heard its not that uncommon to happen. However, he leaks fluid sometimes from his penis, so that worries me slightly. Can it ever happen that a neuter wasn't done properly and he can still produce sperm?

We're going to the vet tomorrow, so I'll ask, but thought I'd ask her first since he keeps trying to hump her!

and here's a photo!

docked tails?

Just out of curiousity, is it general practice to dock a Boston's tail when it's born?  My Oreo has zero tail and my husband is convinced it was docked, but I don't think I've ever seen a Boston with a longer tail.
