Did you know that other than the obvious..... there is a big difference between male and female puppies.

It is not uncommon for people to believe that a female dog will make a better pet. We get a lot of inquires from people looking for that "special little girl". A common misconception, people don't think that females will exhibit "alpha behaviors", like humping and / or marking. A lot of people think females are more passive and friendly, and they don't take part in fighting over dominance, which could NOT be further from the truth. If you check out the structures of dog packs, the females determine the pecking order and who is to rule the roost. The result of that behavior is that the females become more stubborn, independent, and territorial than males. These females are much more intent on exercising their control by participating in that "alpha" behavior like humping. More fighting will usually break out between two females.

Neutered males rarely exhibit secondary sexual behavior such as marking or lifting their legs, as well as humping.  Once the testosterone levels recede after neutering, most of these behaviors will disappear, if they ever existed. Boys who were neutered early (<6 months), usually don't ever raise their leg to urinate. Key Takeaway:  Before making your decision on that age old dilemma of Male vs. Female, hopefully these words will give you some helpful insight and information to consider!
