    I think it's a personal choice... Dog or Bitch, I've only had one Dog... my GSD Rex, have always had Bitches in other breeds. I was told things about males that are not true, as I have found with my Rex. I'm sure your puppy will grow into a wonderful dog and he will love you to pieces, just like mine.

    Hes an Australian Shepherd x Kelpie
    Hes only 13 weeks old.

    This is what we were told.
    He was a pet shop puppy
    he was bought, the older dog in the family didnt like him, attacked him
    they took him back to the shop
    he was sold again, but to a family that has a cat, the cat stressed
    so they took him to rescue,
    rescue have said he has been wonderful. She wanted to keep him, but she is renting and cant.
    We have him on a two week trial.

    Wish me luck!!!!

    MMJ, love your emoticon. Puppy's Mama, congratulations on taking the step to adopt and sincere best wishes with your new pup.

    Seems he may have no issues that will cause you concern and you need have no worries about him being a male. Only difference I see between boys and girl s is the boys sometimes seem to have what I call a Stallion streak - "You want me to do what? When? Now? Well ok then, if I have to".

    My BC male has never got anywhere near the number of agility titles that any one of our competing bitches have obtained. There are good easy to train male dogs and there are the stubborn ones. The stubborn ones just take longer and need more patience. Then again you do also get stubborn bitches.

    depeneding on the breed most females are more indipendent, and males more cuddlie.
    or vise versa , but all depends.

    To those that have Girls, are they more inclined to get jealous? possessive?

    I'd love to see photos of your pup! He's a cross of my two very favourite breeds
    In terms of the difference between boys and girls i would also say the boys tend to be more snuggly and loving where as girls are more independant

    I have had plenty of bitches through my life and I cannot remember any one of them being jealous of attention given to another furkid.

    You could maybe misinterpret resource guarding as jealousy. I have had a staffy aggressively barge another dog away from being cuddled but she then sat next to me and allowed the other dog near but not within reach of me.

    I've not noticed any difference in the amount of resource guarding aka jealousy between boy and girl dogs.

    For me, there is some difference between breeds and some difference in training. Ie if you let a dog resource guard as a puppy and don't teach it to share when asked - it gets worse as they get older. The sex of the dog does not make a difference in this.
