  1. Thank you, I’m thrilled to bits!
  2. Thank you for your your further reply. Ironically, after posting my questions, to my utter surprise and delight I was rung on Sunday night with an offer of a girl puppy. Still my preferred choice, but I was very reassured by all the replies that I would enjoy a boy puppy too.
  3. Thanks for your reply, it made me smile! I’m starting to agree re overlap and am thinking that the nurturing and ‘upbringing ‘ is really what counts rather than the actual sex especially when they are neutered.
  4. Thank you for your reply and info about your male dogs. I am certainly feeling much more reassured.
  5. Thank you for your reply - your examples of girls and boy dogs are very interesting and reassuring if I am offered a boy puppy.

I loved my old doggie dearly as I have all the other female dogs of various pedigrees over my entire (long) life. Due to my/our age, our next dog will be our last one.

  10. Hi Jamie, I’m unable to give you any answers to your concern for your puppy - only some support for the difficulties that some dog owners face from uncontrolled dogs. I live in a remote seaside village in Tasmania and I’m absolutely sick of some dog owners thinking they have a ‘god given right’ to allow their dogs off leash regardless of whether they’re actually in an on-lead area; or whether their dog is well-behaved; or whether they have any recall control over them; or whether their dog is from a known aggressive breed or whether they are around a toddler’s playground.
