I know I am most likely going with Linda again, and she doesn't tell you about different temperaments of her dogs. I was a little concerned about it given that other breeders do this, but as it turns out, we could't ask for a better temperament w/ Peanut. He is wonderful!
But yeah, I am definitely flexible on the coloring and sex.
Man, I hope this feeling doesn't get worse! LOL
I don't think Leeann meant temperament as in nice versus nasty... One would hope that no ethical breeder would be selling puppies with "bad" temperaments. But every Hav is an individual, just as every child is. You will find some that are a little shyer and more retiring, and others that are more outgoing. There will be some that are more intense and adventurous, and others that prefer to couch potatoes. And there can be one of each in any litter. This has nothing to do with good breeding, it's just individual variation.
It's also not a matter of "good" or "bad". My Kodi is very outgoing, and always looking for something to do. He's perfect for me because I wanted a dog to work with and do serious training. But for someone who expected to be able to leave their puppy loose in the house by 6 months... he'd be a big disappointment. He is like having a two year old child in the house... curious and into everything. He needs constant supervision. On the other hand, he's smart as a whip.
What's important is that you find a puppy whose personality is a great fit for your family AND the dog you already have. If, for instance, Peanut is a quite, laid back kind of guy, a busy, wild, active personality type might just aggravate him all the time. If Peanut were very territorial about his possessions, you'd want to find a puppy whose was a bit more of a follower, and would respect his space.
I can't imagine your breeder wouldn't work with you to find a pup who is a good match for Peanut and the rest of your family. If she wouldn't, I'd find another breeder who would.
