    I prefer bitches for the purely practical reasons that they don't usually cock their legs on everything, and there is more tummy for rubs.

    My bitch was desexed at 8 weeks. She's a year and a month now. She has never marked over another dog's mark -though she likes a good sniff there. She is very loyal to me, and freaks out on walks when she doesn't know where I am - which I use to my advantage. She's an independent thinker - recall isn't always reliable at the moment. Especially when hotdog sausage is involved. She's extremely outgoing, loves to greet every person and every dog and would greet cats if they didn't run or weren't so grumpy. Likes chasing cats that run. And she's a big sook. Loves cuddles and pats, and leans on me or anyone who will give her a pat. And she loves belly rubs. She's very non threatening with small children, but barks a lot at men who look at her wrong or try to reach out to pat her.

    So all that was to try to say that the personality attributes that some of you assign to the different sexes don't seem to apply to my dog. Nor have I noticed that kind of gender specifics with other dogs I've lived with.

    I had quite a few people say I should get a male dog because I'm female and that will be a stronger bond but hasn't actually worked reliably - some dogs get along with me and some don't and which sex the dog is doesn't seem to have a lot to do with it.

    That is EXACTLY what I was going to write. I have found bitches to be more bitchy and the dogs to be more affectionate.

    In the last 5 years we have had some 60 dogs (95% of them Pugs) come though my home and in most cases, the males were usually nicer dogs when it come to being lap dogs and being affectionate. Although, with Pugs, I must admit the bitches at times can be more fun because they tend to be a little bit more adventurous in some ways.

    Pick the friendly puppy, the one that likes you (and everybody and anybody). Let the breeder keep the shy feaful puppy.

    Ok...my dogs personality

    Sumo: goofball...playful...fun...high-strung...in-your-face...runs around like crazy

    Ruby: kind...sweet...a definite bitchy streak towards Sumo when he is too much...loves cuddles...laidback...moves around slowly

    Polar opposites really

    Dog.
    I have had two males and a female dog in my lifetime. Dogs are far sweeter.

    Thanks all.

    I wasn't supposed to be getting a pick at all, just the last puppy left, so to speak, so therefore there was no issue of choosing between dog or bitch.

    The fact that things have changed and I am being given a choice between the sexes is fantastic, but I am waiting on an e-mail from breeder, as I really do need to view the puppies to make my decision. Once I am with them, I will know which one I wish to choose and visa-versa, really.

    I wish she'd e-mail me back. Lol. I have NO patience in the world!!!
    Thanks for your input everyone. It is appreciated.

    We advocate letting a bird choose you too, I also feel that is the same with any pet if you have the choice.

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

    I don't think I've ever chosen a dog based on what sex he/she is - it's always come down to their personality....although most of my dogs have been the ones that no one will touch because of behavioural or health issues so they've ended up as failed foster dogs and stayed with me! I love them all utterly, and they all do their best to drive me insane from time to time!

    If I were ever looking at a pup I'd also let He/She be the one to choose ME! (Luckily I love the oldies so I can't ever see myself having a puppy - even if they are too cute)

    bitches here, i think they're smarter :P :P (waits to be shot down in flames mwhahaha)

    nah all my animals are girls, (duinno about the snake, i think hes a boy he's moody LOL) i just find they are easier to control (usually slightly smaller in size) and easier to train, but i am by no means an expert (and lets face it men are pigheaded :P :P )
