Choosing a new puppy: boy or girl?
Hi All! I'm new to the forum and have enjoyed reading the informational threads as I research for our new Havanese puppy.
When starting our search, I wanted a girl -- no real reason, I just thought a girl puppy would be a sweet, cuddly companion. Upon visiting the breeder, we met all the puppies and were really drawn to the brown/white boy. His markings are really striking and his personality was spunky and fun. The girls were slightly smaller and seemed a little withdrawn and meek.
My question is this: is there really any difference between girl and boy dogs (other than the obvious)? We will have our dog spayed/neutered, so is the difference in the operations something to consider?
I'm thinking temperament and fit with our family is probably the first priority, gender might not even matter.
I'd love to know your thoughts! Thanks for all the wonderful advice in this forum!!
