I got "Bella" when "she" was 5 - not large jowls or pores (my previous girl Lizzie had large jowls & pores, everyone thought she was a boy, but I had to have her spayed when she became egg bound). First vet visit - "Congratulations, it's a boy." Bella is now Bob. 3 isn't very old, since they can live to be 15-20. Lizzie bobbed her head much more than Bob. Can you feel the hemipenes?
