    I have to say females are more loyal......since its 2 against 1 at my place lol

    About 6 months ago we had an intruder jump our back fence and try breaking in through a window!

    I was home alone so I called the police immediately and went straight to my back sliding door to let the dogs in.

    Tyson was already there shaking like a leaf and sooking, Bailey was standing behind the intruder growling and Mully was practically stalking him, snapping growling etc in front of him.

    I yelled out for the dogs and told the intruder I had called the police.

    Tyson came in straight away but neither of the girls would budge until the police got there.

    Thank god neither of my girls was hurt

    I prefer the boys tho my female GSD is very affectionate. I have 7 boys and 2 girls. My other female likes to do her own thing. As for the boys, they are affectionate and always nearby. Soooo, I guess there are plusses for both sides. Maybe it also depends on the breed.....
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I have had 2 bitches, both older. All others were dogs. I honestly I have found no difference in loyalty, temperament etc. I have always avoided choosing a bitch over a dog as I did not want to have to deal with seasons and desexing I felt was easier for the male.

    That all went out the window for me, didn't it, lol.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    For most of my life I had bitches. I wouldn't have had a male dog as a gift. That was until I got my first male.

    It was pure accident. I had my first Deerhound - a bitch pup - on order when a sick, abused, tatty old Wolfhound x came into the pound. When I went to look at him I realised he wasn't a Wolfhound x, but a very neglected Deerhound. I cancelled the bitch pup, took Herne home and nursed him back to health. We had two wonderful years together. Pedigree Deerhounds who came later were always males. Herne converted me.

    Bitches can be ..... bitchy. Overall I think they are more independant than dogs. The boys tend to be more sooky and more willing to please.

    It probably varies within breeds. Most of my own dogs have been hounds, herding dogs, gundogs and toys with a number of crossbreeds as well and this has been my experience with the dogs I have owned.

    Personally I've found male puppies quicker and easier to house train than bitch pups. A lot of people say males are more likely to mark their territory indoors but I haven't had this problem. My boys have always been very clean inside. On the down-side entire male dog pee stinks a lot more than desexed male or bitch pee. Lifting legs doesn't help. However many giant breed males squat like bitches most of the time. Certainly the Deerhounds only lifted their legs if they needed to leave a really important pee-mail message.

    If you are looking at a litter of pups it's usually best to go with your gut instinct and choose (or be chosen by) the one you like best. No matter if it is a dog or a bitch one will stand out as being the right pup for you.

    Your entire post was great DH, but this sentence probably sums up what I am going to do.
    I e-mailed breeder back last night and said that really, I need to visit pups to make that decision. A dog chooses it's owner just as much as we humans choose the dog IMO.

    Ziggy is a desexed female. I had no preference either way (she was from the pound). I don't think it really matters either way (at least not once they've had the snip anyway).
