Are they both fixed? What set up or provoked the fight?

Expert:  Mike McIntyre replied 1 year ago.
Is she the dominant one of the two dogs ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No he is
Expert:  Mike McIntyre replied 1 year ago.

Then if the dominance is already been determined to be him, we are not fighting for dominance. Has he been neutered already?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
wat do u suggest
Expert:  Mike McIntyre replied 1 year ago.

Has he been neutered? If not, the higher levels of testosterone may cause some more aggression too.
