BOY - VS - GIRL
One reason people sometimes consider getting a girl is that they feel a girl will be sweeter or more loving however, females are usually more independent and stubborn than the males. Females are much more intent upon showing their dominance by participating in behaviors such as fighting to establish who is in charge. I have had to occasionally break up a tussle or two and they were between girls not boys.
Males, on the other hand, are usually more affectionate, outgoing, attentive, and seek your attention more often.. They are very attached to their people but are also very loving to others as well. Girls usually have their "favorite" and snub the rest. Boys can also be more accepting of other pets. Most boys are easily motivated by praise, and are very eager to please which makes training easier. Neutered males rarely exhibit secondary sexual behavior such as "marking" or lifting their leg. Boys who are neutered early (by 5 months of age) usually don't ever raise their leg to urinate
since they no longer have the higher testosterone level of an "intact" dog. The house training of a neutered male is no different than the house training of a female.
One reason a female is sometimes chosen is so that it can wear bows and can be dressed up. There is now a variety of choices of clothing and accessories for both boys and girls at pet stores and pet boutiques.
No matter which you choose, since it is YOUR adorable baby - you will love it and he/she will love you in return!!!!! A puppy of either sex will be a wonderful friend for many
years, bringing you joy and unconditional love.
