The data used by researchers was only made up of golden retrievers, the study’s authors are confident that their findings can be applied to other breeds, specifically larger dogs.  I have known for 30 years that dogs were created to breed.  I never "fixed" a dog.

Study: Spaying, Neutering Larger Dogs May Cause Obesity, Orthopedic Problems
DENVER — Are you feeling queasy about taking your new dog to be “fixed”? While it’s generally considered the right thing to do as a pet owner, some people hesitate to spay or neuter their pet because, well, it doesn’t exactly sound like a pleasant experience for the pup. However, new research finds that dog owners, specifically large-breed dog owners, may also be saving their pets from weight issues and orthopedic issues by holding off on such procedures.
