    It isn't the pit bull that is aggressive, it is the owner.  I had pit bulls and many other kinds of dogs, cats, birds, kids, and I never had a problem with any of my pits acting aggressively.

    It will have effect on your male pit. In many ways.  I always recomend "fixing" a dog, as breeding needs to be controlled, and done by pro's.  However, do not expect "social grace" to be among the "changes" that you pit will undergo.  Socializing is the key to eliminating dog aggression.  Socializing being going to the dog park.  Lots of interaction with other dogs.  Not the same dog, or two, but many.  You will find this a little challenging, as most of my pits, 7 total now, seem to recognize their own breed, and will prefer to single out other pits for play.  And, another aspect of dog aggression would be "control."  I started a hub, entitled "american stafford shire bull terriers," which highlights what you pit is looking for from you, in order to gain his respect, thus control over him

    Altering a dog has zero affect on curbing aggressiveness.  It can have an affect on marking and escaping, but was long ago proven that it doesn't help with aggressiveness.  Most police dogs are not fixed because of ego problems with officers but the few that are fixed perform equally as well.
