Munson, a burly seven-year-old English bulldog, has a secret: His testicles are fake.
Neutered as a puppy, Munson (named after Larry Munson of Georgia Bulldog fame) got a pair of synthetic stand-ins to preserve his manly pride. Not his idea, of course, but his owner’s.
“A lot of dogs have a lot of hair back there so you can’t tell they’re neutered. But with bulldogs, it’s just right out there for everyone to see,” said Jaime Davenport of Atlanta, whose husband, Jim, stood up for Munson’s mojo.
Over dinner with a veterinarian friend, the Davenports learned about Neuticals — bean-shaped silicone implants swapped in through a tiny scrotal slit during the neutering procedure.
