Ahhh… the old controversy – which is better? A boy or a girl dog?
Many first-time dog owners want a female dog, because they think they’re less trouble. Others like a male dog because there’s no danger of being stuck with puppies.
An individual dog can always be much different than generalizations suggest. I’ve seen many male dogs that were completely docile sweethearts, and females that were aggressive and wanted to wander. Overall, deciding to get a female or male dog is just preference.
If you plan to spay or neuter your dog, then it probably won’t make a big difference if you get a male or female dog.
