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.
