Hermaphrodite dog undergoes sex change operation
Has anyone heard of a double gender dog?
A hermaphrodite Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England has undergone a rare sex change procedure to make her female and live a perfectly normal life. Two-year-old Saira is now a female-only dog and could even become the mother of pups after the successful operation.
John Conchie, the pet’s owner, explained he had no idea Saira was a hermaphrodite until he was told by the veterinarian. Operating surgeon Richard Weston, meanwhile, said he has never encountered a double gender canine in his 30 years in practice.
Well, this condition is very rare, but such abnormality does not lessen the pet’s ability to love and be a welcome addition to any family.
