ok so as most of you know, we have winston the UNFIXED english bulldog male, and sasha, the FIXED shih-tzu FEmale. lol woops
For the past couple of days, winston has been going crazy. He is running around and mounting sasha (or what ever you want to call it////"humping") my mom always notices that his "red thing" is always poking out. She thinks that sasha is in heat, even though she is already fixed, so nothing can happen. She also thinks that Winston is smelling sashas "in heat oders", so thats making him go crazy. Winston is PANTING like CRAZY. He wont stop doing it. And sasha went to the groomers yesterday, which is making him go after her even more. I had to put him in his cage to get him off of her. We will yell at him to get off, and then he will, and then he will just go back at it.
Now my questions:
Is there a male version of being in "heat"?
And if so, what are the signs of it?
Can a female be in heat even if they are fixed?
Is there a smell that the females give off while they are in heat?
To me, i just think winston is being a horn dog right now, i dont know if males have something like females do that show they want to breed or something, i dont know, its all a big blurr to me.
FILL ME IN PLEASE!
and call me crazy, but this is what is going on right now

Wait, is Sasha a male or a female, because you say Sasha is a fixed male in your original post.
Welcome to the land of having an unaltered male dog! What may be happening is that there's a female dog in heat in your neighborhood that is setting Winston off, dogs can smell a female in heat from more than 1/2 a mile away. He knows Sasha is female and may be persistent in mounting her because of this. There's a female pit in heat in our neighborhood and it's got Riddick humping air occasionally when he gets around Bowen (who isa neutered male).
The chances of her having an incomplete spay are very slim, I'd put my money on having a neighborhood dog in heat, personally.
Oh and if he really is trying to mount, is Sasha retaliating or trying to bite him at all? You may seriously need to keep him seperated from her for the time being when no one is home. If he makes penetration and 'ties' her even thoguh she isnt' in heat, one or both dogs could be seriously injured.

and he does mount her, but we get him off right away
They are gated in the kitchen and living room, so there really isnt a way for them to tie, and every time we arent home, they are seperated in their own kennels. But i still want to know if Sasha still gives off even a tiny smell, even if she is fixed? I was trying to take pictures of them, with santa hats on, which i completed, but i will post them another time because i have to go to work soon, but anyways, he wouldnt even sit, he would just go right into smelling her, and he smells here like every 2 seconds, even when they are outside using the bathroom
If even a few cells of an ovary is left in the bitch she can come into heat even though she has no uterus and can't get pregnant. It is dangerous if they mate and tie, and I would get a vet to make sure she is spayed correctly...Poor Winston! let me guess,he looks like Winston Churchill.....
