Meet the man who sells testicular implants for dogs: ‘People thought I was nuts’

Gregg Miller says he's well aware that his business selling testicular implants for dogs invites just as many jokes as it does clients. That's because Miller's job is creating artificial dog testicles for canines that have been neutered.
"Dogs aren't stupid," he tells Business Week. "They would know if their eye was gouged out, or their foot was cut off. Why wouldn't they know if their testicles are now missing?"
But laugh all you want, Miller, 59, says his business has become a big success. He says 517,223 dogs in all 50 U.S. states and 49 countries are now wearing "Neuticles" manufactured by his company. Though, as Business Week notes, even Miller can't avoid slipping into unintentional humor when discussing his unusual business.
"When Neuticles were introduced commercially in 1995," he says, "people thought I was nuts," he said.
